There was a time i would have simply told him to __ off. J/O.
I guess just calling him moron shows some personal growth.
I have nothing against the purists I actually admire the tenacity and stubborness to go fishless when the fish are taking nothing but bait. It really is a challenge to hunt fish this way and holds a special charm unto itself.
Eels are somehow not considered as bait. But i digress.
Ha! Jim, I think fishing as a sport is about the most snob infested sport of any. The guy you meet was far from an exception.
You've got the "anti-" crowd,,,
anti- bait, bottom, boat, beach, tourist, bluefish, scuppers, spin fishers, conventional fishers, white bucket, daytimers, high tiders, sunny daze, east winders, full mooners, August fishers, sinker dunkers, monofilimenters, etc.

And, we have the Pros-
Pro - flyfishers, pluggers, nighters, sand spikers, surfers, jettiers, eelers, late nighters, rock owners, storm casters, custom gear freaks, etc.

Me? I like it all at certain times. Some of my better fishing days I never even wetted a line.
Now if that makes anyone "" then they probably fall into one of the above groups
I'm just a smuck that enjoys the varietys of life enough to not be an exclusive elitist.

You moron.

Whatever it takes. Is my motto. There was spearing everywhere.
It wouldn't have hurt him, to be kind. I've run into a few like that in my time as well. I tell myself, "boy, I'm glad I ain't like that"!

when I am fishing the surf with bait I prefer clams first and bunker second but I always had a spare rod hooked up with either a plug or metal and when I fish the jettys and bridges at night I use bucktails, plugs and plastic

Don't fish a lot of bait. But it would be Mackeral.

I don't see Jigs, either.

Hmmm. Bucktails and plugs, mackeral if I just wanna watch the stars move. Can't see a clam lasting long in the Canal.

Almost exclusively plugs for me. I do enjoy tossing some bucktails from time to time though.
