Eric...the part I don't understand is that they see you casting...then stand directly behind you to watch you cast???????? What part don't they get?
Of course, one day I used an intermediate line and had my stripping basket...I was asked at least 4 times if that is what I used to put my fish in
That comment goes along with an experience my fishing buddy and I had at North Monomoy last year...there we were casting into the channel at the north end of the island and a " large hatch of kayakers" came by 10 ft in front of us and asked "are you fishing"?
We responded..."not any more".
We put an "X" in the sand at low tide so that we could come back to the productive spot later in the tide :hihi
