70 year old friend of mine was fishing up on a shallow flat off Marathon in the Keys when two jet skis decided to run doughnuts around them. He threw a live crab across one of the jet skis and the line went across the drivers neck causing him to fall off. He got up and walked over to the boat , threatening to whip my friends butt. Dennis, on the poling platform jabbed the guy in the chest with the pointy end of the pole and told him to leave before he got hurt bad. He left, and didn't return. Idiots are everywhere.

Went to Reimers on the Pedernales to catch some white bass in my Kayak. Its a thin strip of water and you need to try to be as quite and courteous as possible. Always try to make sure that your are not crossing in front of other fishermen or disturbing their fish. Had an gentlemen in his late fifties show up with his two grand kids in a small boat. They drove right thru everyone. I was anchored up just off the main channel on the deep side of the river bed and he comes over and drops his anchor in front of me no less than 20 yards and the whole time literally screaming at his kids probably around 12 & 8. . IF I ever hear " DO YOU WANT A SANDWICH" screamed for the 42nd time again I will lose it. Kids were miserable. I pulled my anchor and headed to another spot further upstream, probably 1/4 mile or so. As soon as I got set up and caught another fish, here he came again. Almost swamped me, set up 30 yards away. I pulled anchor and just left. Can't fix stupid.

I have always found that a big weight that accidentally snaps off the line when casting seems to make rude people give you more space.

You should be on a lake when one of those new high school bass tournaments is going on, the most un-courteous not to mention dangerous boating I've ever seen.

My buddy and I were fishing offshore at a rig. Not another boat in sight which is not surprising as we were several miles offshore and there are literally hundreds of places you could fish. We weren't catching any fish when lo and behold this big boat rolls up. Immediately I am irritated. They go up current and the next thing you know a bunch of divers jump in the water. I'm really angry now and hoping I can hook one of those Rascals and land him. We are down current of the rig and catching nothing when all of a sudden we start hooking up. Within a few minutes we have a limit of snapper and an assortment of other fish. Turns out those divers push the fish out from the rig and into our baits.

Seriously though, what does it matter to you how they catch a fish or post on social media? Is your life that bad that things like that eat you up? I've been fishing for many years and catch fish with lures, live bait, cut bait, on a fly rod...whatever I'm feeling that day. And at the end of the day I dont give a rat's azz what someone thinks of it. I'm enjoying a day on the water in my boat that is non of your business how I obtained.

My boys are 10, 7, and 4. They haven't exactly mastered the lure strategy yet. I dont hesitate to let them soak a little live bait if it means they have a huge smile on their faces at the end of the day, and I really dont care what you think about that.

Point is, to each their own how they go and catch a fish. This thread was about the negative attitudes towards others out on the water, and after reading your post, sounds like it's about you.

Who cares how someone catches a fish, theres more than one way to do it, your way ain't the only way, get over it

But the important question is this...did you finance your boat for longer than the high and mighty financial advisers on social media approve of? and don't forget...did you learn how to find a fish on your own

I can understand some of the frustration with the old timers vs new guys so to speak. People's spots are not "theirs" anymore with the advanced technology. Not that any spot belongs to any certain person. For years people sink brushpiles on lakes and it only takes some time looking and you can find a lot of them. With new maps and depthfinders, you can simply follow contours until you find what you are looking for on most lakes.

Lots of folks are mad that these youngsters are in their spots and it was easy for them, they didn't have to "put in the work" to find the spot, it all out there on the internet and updated maps. My buddy borrowed my Navionics card and went to Cedar Creek Sunday-Thursday, neither of us have ever been there and they caught 60-100 each day by just using a map chip and finding the offshore spots. It's getting that easy.

I have gone into an area practicing and get covered up with boats and they copying what I am doing. At that point, If I have other areas with fish, I will enjoy that spot and stick as many fish as I want but I practice catch and release only.

You ever had some a-hole do something stupid around you on the freeway? He most likely has a drivers license.

We don't need more government fees to be able to hit the lake. It won't fix anything. A-holes will be a-holes.

I don't have an issue with that ^ too much...I mean, once you drop a brush pile in public waters, it becomes everyones brush pile to use. The issue I have with people on the water is the fly by's who buzz past you way too close, just so they can mark a spot, while trying to be inconspicuous (as if everyone doesn't know what they're doing), the folks who come within easy casting distance to potluck your hole and start chunking your direction, the idiots who zip in between a boat/waders and the shoreline just because they don't want to take a few seconds to give a wide berth (seriously, it is literally seconds added on your run...quit being a DB and go around), and the guides who pull up and demand you move off of "their" brush pile. I have fished with an elderly gentleman who has sunk hundreds of piles on Rayburn, and he gets a kick out of the idiot guides who pull up to a pile that he sunk that we are fishing and try to move him off of "their" pile I can't type his conversations with them on here, it would include way too many *'s

Oh man I forgot about the guys who anchor in the boat cuts. The Galveston North Jetty is horrible. People are anchored up right in the middle of the cut with a smokin tide, and they get mad when you buzz by them. Its literally the only cut through that jetty, and it is a very long boat ride to go around the end of the jetty. In their eyes though your a real **** because you didn't idle by them. In my eyes I'm not risking tides pushin my boat into rocks because you anchored in the middle of the boat cut!

Wasnt there a guide in Rockport that got KO'd on the water a few years back for potlicking a group that didnt appreciate it? Heard that the guy that swung on him was nice enough to help him back into his own boat, then suggest his paying clients get a refund.

I remember that, but if I remember correctly there was more to it than simple pot licking. I seem to remember the dude being a world class jack hole.

Many years ago I took a friend fishing at Colorado Bend State Park during the white bass run. Tons of fishermen spread out all over the shallow rapids fishing the slightly noisy flowing clear water....

Until my buddies two sons 8 and 10 years old muddy the water up for everyone down river...and proceed screaming and yelling and fighting like only two little brothers could do. And I mean they fought, screamed all in that water with their Dad telling them to calm down once in a while LOL

I KNOW there are more than a handful of guys that tell that story to each other about rude people

I bet he kills the bucks before his neighbors do also.


Iíve cleaned fish 4 or 5 times in the last 14 years. You could double that amount for the few times Iíve been on a guided trip offshore or had someone else clean them.

I know it's not right, but I just can't release a big trout for some **** to catch later, out of a boat he financed for 20 years, or his dad's, knowing he never learned how to find a fish on his own, and only throws croakers. then shows his catch off on some social media page and tells his coworkers he caught them on topwaters...... yeah, I know way too many youngsters like that....

I miss the days when I could land 6-8 27+" trout per year in east matty, another 10 or so from Baffin.... those days will never return

Trolling....
