Fisherman Just Walks Into The Water When Asked To Get Off The Property


Can’t argue with that one…

Fishing is one of those things that can be difficult to find new spots depending where you live.

Popular spots are exactly that, popular… and easily accessible locations is tend to get swarmed right away. Sometimes you have to get creative, although you don’t want to be breaking the law and trespassing to find yourself a place to fish (although plenty of people do it).

Of course, as anglers, we always want to be respectful of people’s property.

There is one slight loophole regarding bank fishing however…

Different states have different laws, but generally any navigable water is free to use and not the property of the landowner.

Of course, it is the land owner’s right to have those rules in place along the bank, and as fishermen, we should try our best to abide. But, it can become frustrating and a bit of a nuisance when you’re trying to fish in some areas.

Some spots are just best fished from land which can lead to conflicts if you do so.

This man is seen fishing from shore, using a chest mount to film his adventures.

As he is casting away someone starts talking behind him trying to get his attention. The man informs him that he can’t fish there because it is private property (a senior care center), so that fisherman tries to bargain and tell the man he waded up the river.

The man lets him know that he has to leave the property due to liability issues. Even though he disagrees the man abides by the rules.

He hilariously takes to two steps forward into the water.

“Okay, so I’ll be fine here?”

The man is speechless as the fisherman takes another cast as he stands legally in the water off of the property.

The fisherman hooks into a beauty smallmouth as the man tells him that he’ll be fine as long as stays in the water and doesn’t come on shore.

The particular situation worked out, but make sure to check your local laws before you start arguing with someone about water rights near the bank.
