OK To Shoot Guns During Fishing Trip from a Boat?

FlecFlec Posts: 409 Deckhand
I fish a lot but rarely shoot any of my guns. I thought I might fire a few rounds when I am far away from anyone while I am in my boat. Any laws against this?

    Can add some entertainment to an otherwise boring stretch for sure.

    John, That is SUPER unsafe.... You have no backstop and a bullet could skip off water and travel a VERY long way...

    Go to the I.R. county range....
    There are many roads to travel

    If you "have to shoot"
    I say shotgun
    Steel shot recommended

    Or you can use Joe's leg as a back stop. I hear it has worked well in the past.

    Anything from #4s to #8s for flying fish
    Steel shot is a responsibler decision
    Use IC choke for roughish conditions and mod for those flat days when you can let em glide and drop em at 50 yards ;-)
    Seven down, Eight to go.

    Steel Shot some of you guys are crazy!!!! You worried about a duck eating it where flying fish are found? Lead all day long. Flying fish can take a hit. Def #6 or lower.

    Anyone who has shot themselves automatically disqualifies their opinion on gun safety! Seriously!

    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    I used to shoot hell out of flying fish back when I swordfished, but we were usually over 1000 miles from land and weren't worried about a bunch of googans being around.

    I would think anyone that shot them selves would be more safety minded after the incident.

    Since I wasn't talking to you...you really shouldn't concern yourself...but maybe your strong suit is being a busybody... :shrug

    It is actually hysterical how people who visit "forums" don't know......who actually know each other in real life.


    PS Osprey...It isn't a "racial slur"....since Polish is not a race....but the dumb part can apply to anybody..especially people who don't know the difference between a race...and a national origin. :wink

    Hobbits would be a race, unless you are playing really old school Dungeons and Dragons, wherein they would be called "halflings" and would be considered their own class as well as being a race.

    The original comment was an ethnic slur, not a racial slur.

    this guy is an elitist... hates rednecks and anyone else who is a proud Floridian. He's a proud so called representative to a demography of folks who probably dont know who he even is? Apparently his elders did not spank him properly due to his vertical stature

    Yes...I'm an elitist....I definitely prefer some ducks over others.

    No, I don't "hate" anyone...that's too much effort. But, I am AMUSED by *DUMB* Rednecks....like watching a chimp at the zoo amused. Seeing a "Flogrown" sticker on a Truck gets me to look...Chimps are amusing.

    I represent nobody....all views expressed or implied are mine alone.

    There is no way that fatass is shorter, and you know it!

    I hear he's the king of FB these days. Maybe I'll sign up and run him off from there too before he screws up anything else...

    Sorry to kill the deal Gene...but yes...he is shorter....and a lot rounder. :rotflmao

    I still want that footrace with him.... :rotflmao
