Just read a thread on the "other" fishing board that caters to the boating type about another confrontation at the entrance to the new boat ramp facility at Crab Creek in Lynnhaven inlet. Same old crap, a boater comes in and snags a shore-fishermans line in the prop, guy follows the boat to the ramp, lot of wasted energy on discussing who's right and wrong with the same results --- nothing!! Fortunately this was all that happened. I fish both the beach and every now and then from a boat in Lynnhaven so I'm really not taking sides here, but it would be a real shame if that part of the beach is closed to all fishing because of a few knukleheads. We came out of Crab creek the same day (wed.6/11) about 1600 and went back in at 2100 and both times there was a good crowd on the point right where the creek channel dumps into the inlet. There really is no options about how you come out of there -- it is a narrow channel!! The law is very clear about this and states that the boats have the right of way and it's the responsibility of the shorebound guys to move there stuff and let the boats by. We all need to remember this and try to educate our fellow fisher-folks about the same. The city has put way too much into this new facility and if there has to be a choice made between the boats or beach guys I'm quite sure which way it'll go.
