I had an incident today while at the beach w/ my 2 small children. We were well established at a spot & I was fishing. This guy walks out way too close for comfort, paddles out and cuts directly offshore of me. I try to cast away for quite some time, all the while he keeps paddling back in front of me, looking back to be sure he's right in front of me. Eventually an errant cast is caught by the wind & lands about 10 ft from him. He starts yelling & cussing. Comes up on the beach to cuss some more in front of my children while I pack up to leave. I only wanted to get my kids out of there. He started telling me that this is a swimming beach & I can't fish here. Is this true? Are there areas off limits to surf fishing? What is the law regarding fishermen when it comes to swimmers & surfers?
