|LittleMissMagic||A sailboat underway seems to travel at that perfect trolling speed for fishing most of the time. If you do catch anything (I'm on a twenty year catching drought myself), you might have dinner for when you get where you are going. Besides if we sailors cared about what someone else thought we wouldn't be sailing to begin with.|

What kind of a sailor would care?
Why would you care if it looks good. Damn! Who do you think is looking at you anyway?

It is OK on my boat ...
In fact, it was a concession I made to my wife to put rod holders on the stern rails. She is the fisherperson, not me. Using Dipsy-Divers, we troll for salmon when the winds get really light.

|STARWINDY||i have been known to cook some of my best on-board meals with fresh caught fish and crabs...i hate when folks think that because you have a sailboat that you are an ascot wearing snob and above fishing. I have found it quite acceptable to fish with my ascot.|

Not at all. Most sailboats look better with a couple of extra sticks poking out of them anyways.....
We actually have about 16 different outfits on ours, from easy-to-use spincasters for the kiddies to h/d Penn and Shimano conventional reels and rods, a bunch of 12-15 lb. spinning combos and 5 fly rods. Plus 3 crates of tackle. But we usually troll only one rod at a time when the sails are up, 'cuz a single hook-up can be a handfull enough, while twin strikes will drive you mad.
BTW, though I enjoy using the flyrods the most, I don't use them if we're hungry. 'Cuz I still suck at it.........
