What Ajari says makes a lot of sense. IIRC, water rights will often expire if they are not exercised... that's why you see a lot of derelict groups of pilings in Boston Harbor. The pilings represent someone's right to use that water space and if they were removed without being replaced with something new immediately, the right to use that water space would expire.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hey, SD. This is a bit off topic.......

I've been around the net along time, but there is an acronym being used here I've never seen before: IIRC

What does that mean?


Thanks, Fred

Frank- from what you descibe I would say they were trolling, fishing lines coming off the poles, and he did not want you scaring any salmon away from his lines. 500' seems reasonable to me, but if he felt you were a threat to his lines it is pretty easy to move, as you did. In our area the biggest problem is gill netters that usually fish at night. The cork line is at least a 1/4 mi. long with only a dim white light at the end. Sometimes they will shine a light at you, sometimes not. Very easy to get into a maze of several strings set in a narrow channel. You did the correct thing. John

It does sound like a troller at work... and it is odd that he got excited about a 500 foot clearance.

Anyway in the end, no harm done. I imagine another fisher might not have been so concerned.. We've had trollers pass us by closer than that with no apparent worries about it.

500 ft in a channel a mile wide seems very reasonable to me.

You're under the assumption that said vessel in the OP was actually fishing...but if the vessel was fishing and didn't have the proper dayshape up...it technically ain't considered to be fishing. IIRC, the vessel is required to have the dayshape up to get right of way as a "vessel engaged in fishing". Without the dayshape and nets out...it is just a powerboat.
