Often considered an after-thought in the angling world and cast into a lower-class pool, shore-based anglers don’t get a lot of respect. The stereotypical line of thinking regarding us is that we’re too poor to afford a boat, somehow making us less important as anglers because we don’t spend as much money to be on the water.

We target “junk” or “trash” fish, mostly catching catfish, ladyfish and other undesirable species that anglers in boats scoff at. We don’t follow the rules, often poach fish without a second thought and trash all the piers, beaches and other spots we haunt.
