The number one rule is to keep a sharp eye out for buoys. There are always things in the water, whether they be logs, kelp paddies, or buoys. It is pretty important to maintain control and awareness while under way and especially while fishing. We are guests on the ocean, there are no property lines, so keep a sharp watch. It would be awful to hear that someone was too focused on reeling in a big chinook to notice that they were drifting into a channel marker or other obstacle.

I know that even out tuna fishing, where there are far fewer obstacles, someone is always scanning the horizon for proactive course correction.
