Coast Guard Inspection requirement for hand troller?

Postby Sinnazat04 » Fri Jun 30, 2017 7:41 am

I have a small 22ft boat that I will start hand trolling this year with. Aside from requisite emergency equipment am I required to have a coast guard inspection?

If you are staying inside the 3nm line fishing, then no, I do not believe you need an inspection. However, getting an inspection is always a plus when you get time to get it done. It may keep the coasties from harassing you while your trying to make money.
