Worst type of fishing

questianquestian FLPosts: 11 Greenhorn
Guys is there any type of fishing worse than dock fishing?

Trying to cast without hitting a piling or the dock while you wait for a homeowner to yell at you for fishing his dock. When you reel in it pulls you into the dock and you have to constantly readjust your boat/kayak.

Getting pulled into the pilings by a 90" snook while a homeowner beats you with a cane and sprays his hose at you. There's nothing worse than this.

I never feel calm fishing docks it's the worst someone help.

    As I graduated from the farm pond catching pan fish. ( I think I graduated.)
    I fished A wide variety of other species. Working my way to big lakes and eventually rivers.
    At times I would target carp and catfish and yes I do eat them. It happened
    twice as I was dead sticking on the bank. In a blink of an eye my rod got
    pulled in the water and disappeared. This one time as I was fishing two
    rods as I reeled in the other rod for a bait check. I managed to catch the rod that got
    pulled in. After I reeled it in the fish was still on and yes I landed it. The worse part
    of fishing is getting your rod pulled in and then standing there dumb founded! ;)

    If you can come up with a type of fishing that is bad, you should probably take up golf.

    You looked out the window one side and it was one of the nicest days you can ever imagine.
    You looked out the other side and it looked like the end of the world was coming.
    A few minutes later you heard. No one leave the cabin until further notice and then we got hit!

    Check up again in another 10 days.

    I've seen worse.

    Fair weather fisherman.
    Someone who you thought was a good friend but they only show up when the circumstances are in their favor.

    I've seen worse.

    I don't like that.



    This one's better.

    Guides that are designed for rods that dispense line at high speeds.
    The distance from the first connector to the spool, bail less. It all takes
    place is seconds.




    That hurt’s my thumb, my shoulder hurts, my forearm is getting cramped.

    parabolic rods vs zoned action. line lay. What's the purpose?

    Fishing with savemyriver is fun but awful at the same time.  Too much drinking and monkey business IMHO

    Simple courtesy come to mind.  The ninety inch snook is questionable as is the rest of your post.

    But you end up with a awesome smoke.So, smoke some first and then you  will find the experience of catching a new but different kind of smoke exciting.

    Never had a problem fishing docks. Most homeowners, if they even know you're there, are more curious as to what you catch then trying to keep you away from their dock. Except for the lady in St. Pete with the 300-pound Goliath under her dock that she feeds table scraps. Other than that, most people are pretty cool. If not, there are PLENTY of docks to try

    I've shore fished canals in July and caught whiting and catfish over in NSB.   It was hot and incredibly miserable.

    man, just recently moved here , i can imagine your need. 
    I left cocoa beach as a 17 high school dropout surfer and moved on to the military settling in ky for 34 years dreaming of being here.
     We are now. My son married a girl from here and we’ve followed. It happened so fast but was a pain getting the house ready and moving 5 dogs finding  a house here that’s beautiful. Do it. 
    I stopped for a moment to get him today.🙃🐟

    It's short and 18 lb. mono.



    Even if it was a keeper you still can't use it for bait.



    I was hoping to catch something to run me up and down the beach for about an hour. ;)



    6 and bait, 60 shocker, 300 lb. 49 strand cable, 10/0 octo beak, cannon ball rig.



    The worst kind is when the ocean surges and wets your belongings.

    Stop crying kid. You're scaring the fish.



    That fishing rod is dangerous. You should be mire careful.

    This is so overwhelming. I’m getting perplexed.

    For bait it changes.

    your tile rod that you're jigging with isn't adequate for jigging tuna.
