Interesting comment on "troll" being the Pacific version of "trawl," and given the expertise of the poster I don't question it. However, here in the east trolling and trawling are two very different types of fishing - the former referring to motoring along slowly while dragging a natural and/or artificial bait on a line (usually a sportfishing technique) and the latter referring to dragging a large net (virtually always a commercial fishing technique).

That said, although I've seen this discussion about trolls and Fodors many times over the years, I've always sided with those who believe the origin to be troll in the sense of trolling for bites, rather than trolls as furry creatures.

I agree with PalenQ. Some troll posts provide good conversation among the non-trolls!

Don't know about seals & fish (don't have many bodies of water in central Indiana!), but maybe we should start a "Save the Trolls" campaign!!!
