What is the deal with pluggers using more than two rods on a public pier? I come across this quite frequently at many piers from Ferry Point, Paradise, Fort Baker, Fort Mason, Muni, and most recently, Torpedo Wharf. It's sad that I saw another fish poached here recently on a third rod. Do these fishermen know that what they are doing is ILLEGAL? Is fish and game ever going to do a pole count and confiscate fish and gear? I'm so tired of this type of poaching. If you know old man Simon from Paradise, I find it ironic that the guy likes to brag about the fish he has caught in broken English while using 3 rods. I have even witnessed his son/nephew/relative/however they are related, Eddy, poach a fish at Paradise on a third rod using a lure. Those "park rangers" at Paradise are completely useless, by the way. Don't waste your time with tip411 either because your tips will fall on deaf ears. So, yeah, spread the word and use 10 rods on a public pier because, apparently, it DOES NOT MATTER. I don't know who I hate more. The filthy poachers or the useless DFW.
