Re: You are NOT "FISHING"

Back when I was studying for my license one of my instructors said that although he couldn't pin them down on it, there were indications from the USCG that a trolling vessel could be considered a fishing vessel if it had a fish on.
That sort of even makes sense.
I remember being hailed off St. Augustine inlet one afternoon by a sportfisher who requested that I give him a lot of room because his angler was fighting a large fish and he was maneuvering to keep the best angle/boatspeed on the fish. Happy to oblige, Cap.

I would not tell that to crab fisherman in Chesapeake Bay.

I emailed SeaTow and and Sea Tow Foundation - Home Page last week. They emailed me this morning to tell me that they have worked with Google to get that incorrect information off of the web.

Many years ago I read all the regulations, then proceeded to consider anything much bigger than me to have the right of way, still here.

Well, this has all been interesting reading. With the exception of small sports fishing boats, any boat that looks like a commercial fishing vessel with things like pointy outrigger poles, big net reels,all kinds of lines running all over the place, and possibly needing a paint job, and going slowly in a straight line, is probably "fishing", regardless of what may, or not, be hanging in the rigging.

Back to the original post, the skipper of a commercial charter boat trolling with side planers? out probably thinks everybody should get out of his way because he is more important than just about everybody else, except maybe somebody bigger than him?

I guess one should do the best one can to avoid a collision or putting another vessel up on the rocks.
