    Pretty much removes the potential for any confusion . . . now they just need one that states "Public Land - No Trespassing."

    Shoot. That only leaves bow hunting without a line, and dynamite.:(

    No worries. I've seen @Irafly hand line a fish on pass by throwing a chironomid and a few ft of tippet off the side of the boat while I was taking a piss. No rod required. A red hook looks just like a blood worm, we're good.
