same thing happened to me, but a much more tame situation.
next to our "clubs" boat ramp is a town pier, i deal with it often so no worries.. I just holler and ask nicely to reel lines in when my foiling waszp is set up and ready to sail away from ramp.. this takes 20 seconds and then the fisherman can recast.
I never had problems until last year one dude forgot to reel in his line (it looked like he had multiple rods going). I was coming in from session.
he hooked my forward foil and proceeded to reel the thing in as fast and violent as he could.... I had to ask - then scream for him stop, after being yanked sideways toward the pier made of rocks for 15 seconds............. I then asked him - in a raised tone - to flip his drag and let me get to the shallow section of the ramp to untangle his line. I could have been less condescending but its a weird sensation being reeled into a tower of rocks. Obviously he didn't intend to hook me up
after swimming the craft to the ramp i finally was able to stand, so I capsized the boat per usual and got the massive luere with three tri hooks off my foil. I apologized awkwardly and thanked him for stopping reeling and lifting drag.
mind you, this public pier is only 40 feet from my ramp and only 5 feet above water at high tide, also its in a protected area so not any wind or current or chop, ... nothing like the big piers down south
made it very easy to communicate with Fishman to explain the situation preventing him reeling the boat into the rocks..
It was such a weird sensation tho - getting reeled in against your will...
if i had a knife i would have cut that shit in an instant
.. $1.00 fish hook vs my hydrofoiling boat... doesn't take much deliberating
