Do you carry a gun fishing?
I just wanted to know how many carry a gun and permit(required by law) with them.
I always do i use to go up tionesta Pa to fish near our deer camp. I have ran into everything from bears,mountian cats, copperheads and rattle snakes (Yes for those who don't know there is rattle snakes in PA). So i do carry a 357 with me every trip i go on to keep me safe.
Alot of people who see you think you do it just to look "Cool". Well i always tellem this when your over 40 miles away from a hospital and 3 or 4 hrs away from your car or phone you never can be to safe. You never know what or who you are going to run into out there along the river's.
Just like putting on a pair of boots. I never leave home with out it (baby glock .40).
Any time my boat is on the water or i,m fishn i have at least 1 pistol with me sometime between my self an my son there might be 3 weapons on our boat ,hope we never need them but if you do an they are at home what good are they
I carry two, one 22lr ruger and one 40cal glock. You can never be too careful coming back to the boat ramp late, my wife fishes with me regularly so I make sure nothing is going to happen.
I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6....

I'm to scared I will lose it and shoot up a wake board boat or jet skier after they wake me out of my anchor for the 50th time.

Almost always. Although in the state of NC, you are not permitted (unless you are law enforcement) to have a loaded firearm on the boat landing. Once youre in the water, doesnt matter.
I never carry a gun. I do take my dog tho if I go alone.
I voted yes, though I no longer own a gun so I can't exactly carry one on me now lol. But I used to carry a Ruger .357 Security Six (my old sidearm) in the tacklebox, since I fish at night and it can be kind of dangerous for a woman to be sitting out in the middle of nowhere all alone. I'm not really afraid of wild varmints, but human varmints have caused me more trouble than I care to mention. :teeth:
Now all I carry is a cell phone, a good sharp fillet knife, and my old 'headthumper' (aka police baton). But I keep my head on a swivel and practice good SA at all times; at the first hint of unwelcome "company" I pack up my stuff and scram, stat.
