The definition: Customary code of polite behavior in the society or among members of a particular profession or group. Now I was born and raised hear on the West cost and I have witnessed first had not only in shore but off shore as well the lack of etiquette among our fishing society. I have always believed that the professionals of our group should set a example for there clients. So my question to the professionals is how close is to close to motor up to you or by trolling motor if you are staked out. I have read the regional reports by this Captain who claims Etiquette is a must but came with in 40' of a point I was fishing running a trolling motor. Then I asked why he would do something like this and the response I received was a laugh and you have yours trolling motor in the water to ( I was there for a hour). I would have been ok with a hey man I am sorry. So please let me know the answer to this trick question.
