    I don't know where you guys are getting your info from, but you need to find a reliable source!
    I just asked to ranger in charge of the pier if trolleys are OK north of the Octi and the response was:
    Not just no, but NO, NO, NO!!!

    Please don't post a HOT TOPIC on the forum unless you have confirmed it to be true!

    this is just what i was told from the pier house when i called. and it doesent matter if there not allowed on the pier cause people are still going to fish them because its in there blood and many that still do it is cause thats all they fished on the old pier and thats all they know i dont see why its a problem there fishing like everybody else just in a diffrent way

    Well if it's not true looks like fishing a two line trolly is going to be a little challenging. No one should have poked that sleeping bear. And to be honest I think some people are asking questions if they are allowed or not just to draw attention to those of us that are harmlessly fishing one in the draw up wind.

    Garrett,
    Your fighting a loosing battle with your words on the Internet. All your doing is drawing attention to a situation that is already a touchy subject between many of the members on this forum. The bad part about drawing attention to it is that it may not be the kind of attention that is wanted per say. I fish a trolley many years on the old pier, and have done it a few on the new one. I have quite a bit of money invested into my tackle for trolley fishing, but have come to the realization that I may never get to use it for its intended purpose again. The problem with trolley fishing isn't the ones who do as they are supposed to, but this who wander off and leave their rods unattended while they go to the bathroom or fish for flounder and Spanish in the other side of the pier. Your always going to have a few bad apples in every group. And don't try to bring up the whole fact of disability either, I have 3 herniated disks in my back, a half a hip on one side, as well as two bad knees, but that won't stop me from fishing. I want to see it back as bad as any of the other old school trolley fishermen, but not at the cost of confrontation and lost friendships over petty bullshit. I will stand behind the decision of the staff and management of the pier and abide by the rules they lay out for us because I am just glad to have a place the stand over the gulf and wet a line while I spend time with some of the people I consider my best friends. You can argue about this subject all day long like its been done the past 4 years, but its still not going to get anywhere. Be happy with what you have because I remember a good long period of time when it wasn't there, and how much I missed being there with my friends.

    So, your solution is to just ignore the rules and do what you want to. I hope this isnít your attitude about laws too; you are in for a rough ride down the road of life.
    There is a formal effort underway to get the rule changed in Montgomery by due process. Defiance is not going to help the situation, but could derail it.
    btw, you may want to get off the computer and pay attention in class.

    well I will still change my rod holder's to match the wood of the new pier....and plenty of room for them to bring whether they get used or not,at least I will have them just in case....love that bait presentation on a windy and ripping current day....up wind naturally

    still need a measurement from the out side of 2 vertical members....I am guessing 8in's ....4 between the wood and then 2in for each vertical wood post.....HELP someone

    that way having this the rods can be removed easily and raised to let a angler with a fish on get by with not to much trouble
    instead of bunging them to the rail that kinda makes it harder to remove quickly
    Bill..............
