Two types of fishing are worthy of pursuit (not counting collection with a
handnet/pushnet, which actually requires skill): surfcasting for
bluefish/striped bass on an exposed sandy beach, and fishing for the same
fishes from a canoe in a back river system behind barrier islands. Both of
these forms benefit from being in a dynamic environment, and knowing that
the fish respond to that environment. And, you have to do something active
to catch the fish beyond just sitting there like a lump. In particular, the
use of sonar in fishing should mark someone as having room temperature IQ.
But then, YMMV...
