Does this just happen to me? I've had 2 good bank trips followed by 3 bad. Sure enough I've lost a pound or more sinkers due to some guy saddling right up next to me, when clearly there is enough room. All my lines are in the water (3 max). You can see the direction of the tide it's going to be the left or the right. You can see the lines too they pull in that direction. What do you think happens...dude next to you just casts right over your lines. I usually look the other way, then figure I saw that a mile away. I sit, wait, then they go to reel in. This is the funny part, they get a little resistance from my line and think they have a fish. I figure what rod they have caught because I can see it pulling. I wait just to make sure then crack them with the firm "You caught my line"...I'm not rude or mean about it but it does suck. It can happen if they're 50 yards away and cast out straight snag your line. The only kicker is sooner or later they think they have a fish and its my line , then I crack the old you got my line.:wink: that brings it into perspective.
