    Re: Need to know something?

    Does anyone know where to find anything written on "Trolling Etiquitte for the fisherman, pleasure boater, and water skier, etc."?

    Until this book happens, you just have to bite your tongue, you cant teach them all.

    "Common sense"
    That trait is almost "extinct" now a days with the "entitlment" mentality of people today!! Next weekend is the ATT Striper Derby and my son and I go every year, but we have noticed the ski boats most of the time have absolutely no resect for fisherman as they go where ever they please...full bore.

    At $15 a pop, I'm backing down on the snag. There's some submerged pilings on the West Bank that were holding quite a few fish and consequently 3 of my Yo Zuri's.

    What are you supposed to do if you get snagged and there's a boat coming up behind you?

    If your shallow trolling on the West bank, with boats all over you, & you hook a fish & try & get it to deep water, all you do is block everyone [ deep & shallow ] & your gonna get your line cut or cause a major pile up of boats that can't get by.
    If it's possible, yes, try it, but not with other boats coming up behind you, or in front of you.
    When your in heavy traffic & hook a fish, just go to neutral & point at the fish your fighting, that way the other boats know where your fish is, & not go over your line.

    I personally have lost fish while trying to move my boat outside the trolling lane so others could pass freely without interrupting their opportunity to get bit, too. So I believe there is great merit in Whaler 1's advice. That said, I definitely will now stand my ground and not move when I know I'm playing a big fish. But when the vast majority of strikes are coming from cookie-cutter stripers of the 20 inch variety, like has been the case so far this spring, I try to move out of the lane when hooked up with such a fish so as to not disrupt the traffic flow. I appreciate everyone's input regarding this matter. In the future it will be a judgment call for me, not an automatic pull-out.

    In fishing, I throw myself away and find myself again and again.

    +1 The best method is as Seon described. If you hookup in the trolling lane if at all possible turn your boat toward deeper water to allow others to continue their troll.. with the realization that most fish caught on the troll these days are under ten pounds pulling out of the trolling lane shouldn't be a major problem.

    Obviously you haven't seen bank combat. It's worst than boating combat.
    Yeah I tend to stay away from crowds and fish private areas you need permission to access...
