Two men fishing from a boat

Vessel operators who are boating in the vicinity of fishing boats should:

  • Slow down when approaching fishing boats or give them a wide berth.
  • Never run over anglers' lines. Be aware anglers may have lines out to the sides of their boats or trolling behind them.
  • Never disturb fishing boats by making a large wake. An angler at anchor could be swamped by another vessel’s cruising wake.
