Just because you can’t cast to their boat doesn’t mean they can cast to yours. That’s way too close. Try to give more space that that if you can. If you have to quietly pass someone that is anchored in a creek, then you might have to get close to pole or tm by. But to fish one cast away is very poor etiquette imho



In the video we were specifically talking about fishing in one of our local rivers in wintertime when there are multiple boats in one location. I think it would be helpful to see the context what we were talking about.


That’s fair. And that’s a pretty respectable distance in that situation ( why I don’t wintertime river fish). My bad :beer:

I'd have a problem with anyone stopping, or anchoring within (or even close) to casting distance of me if I'm stopped on a spot (and they wouldn't like my language) but I couldn't care less if they were just moving past my location and casting as they went by. People should be respectful but there are no set rules of distance and no one owns any spot on the water.

I appreciate all the feedback. Glad you guys like the video, that’s who we do them for is the people getting started and/or the people who are too busy to go often. I know there are so many people in the area that are better fisherman and more knowledgeable than I but I am on the water all the time so I have a good feel of what’s going on and don’t mind sharing with the videos.

As far as the one cast length comment. I was referring specifically to wintertime river fishing, obviously you’d like to have more room than that but I don’t think it’s a realistic expectation when you choose to fish in the river when it’s busy.
