Whats the law?

My friend and I wade a lot around the Marathon area when on vacation but I was wondering what the law is?  For example if we are on a boat I believe its ok to anchor up and cast into areas around peoples back yards such as their pontoons, boat moorings etc.  However are we ok to wade such waters provided we dont walk on their land?  So the next question is where does the land of a house go to with regard to the water?  If we are wading in 2ft of water 20 yards from the shore is this still land owned by the householder who's house its outside of?  I hope that makes send and not too confusing!

    Switch this over to Ask the Law, you'll get a better response over there from some LEO's that offer advice.

    I was always under the impression that private property could extend to the high tide line. You should be fine wading in the water.  I could be wrong though, lol.
