When you are fishing the bay and someone is on your honey hole just drive about 500 yards away and throw out a hand full of popcorn. As soon as those birds hit that popcorn those guys will beeline right for it. I don't know if that would be considered improper etiquette but it works great.

It maybe hard to prove but they are gonna get harassed by the Game Warden as well. Nothing wrong with catch and release.

That works well on Buchanan. An old guides trick to get away from potlickers

I used to get mad and yell. Then I got to where I wouldn't say anything and just leave. Now I ask them where they're from, and regardless where they're from I tell them, "we don't do that around here".

I had an acquaintance (we'll call him Andrew) when I was in high school that like to fish as much as I did. I had some permission to fish some private tanks that were loaded up with bass and so one time I took the guy with me to fish. Next thing I know, he was potlicking my best fishing spot. Fast forward about a month or so and I brought a girl home one day. My dad recognized her and said, "Ain't that Andrew's girlfriend?". I told him it was but that I caught him fishing in my hole to which my dad quickly replied..."So now you're fishing in his?". Dad is still a funny guy.

I just move on...because all it will end up doing is ruining my day even if I come out on top of the argument/fight I will still ponder it the rest of the day and not concentrate on anything else.
I have also 100% given up on the left lane as a speed lane. Thats not a battle worth fighting for anymore.

Just wait til you get out on the water and a high school tournament is going on or they're prefishing....ZERO regard for others in the multiple experiences i've had. To make it worse, there's usually an adult on the boat leading the way.

If itís the same guy Iím thinking of heís done it to be 2-3 times. He did it once during the week in rocky slough. Not another boat for miles and that idiot pulled in a hundred feet away or so.

I was fishing a reef a few years ago near the ship channel out of Sabine, and we were catching the trout pretty good on topwater. An old beat up Kenner came cruising by headed to the jetties i'm assuming and they noticed we were doubled up at the time. We literally heard one of them yell to the other one, "Look they found them, lets go over there". Well they obviously had no idea where they were because it is very shallow, and you have to navigate through the ditches in this spot. They scraped up their prop, and beat up that boat getting to us. They got about 25 yards from us, and we were just in disbelief watching what their plan was. They threw out anchor, pulled out their surf rods, hooked up dead shrimp and squid, and threw it right at my boat. It was a great evening hammering the trout and hearing them talk back and forth trying to figure out why they weren't catching anything. We caught a 3 man and headed out once the bite slowed. As soon as we pulled up the power pole they started pulling up their anchor to get in our spot. It was an outgoing tide as well, so I know they tore that boat up trying to get out of there.

That is just my favorite story because they tried their hardest to potlick, but just watched us kill them. I have plenty other stories from east bay and the north jetty area that didn't go so smoothly. Also have plenty of stories getting heated while chasing birds. Nothing chaps my chickens more than when someone ruins a good thing on a group of birds! Especially when there are 2-3 boats successfully working a group of birds together, then some jackwagon pulls right on in and ruins it for everyone.

You guys should fish Port O'Connor, I know it's been bad for a while, but it just gets worse and worse. People there just dont care, they'll run you over, at the boat ramp and out on the water, burn shorelines where you're fishing, come in and fish right on top of you, run right where your fishing...the list goes on and on. What gets me too is when I'm coming in from a back lake, and some idiot is anchored in the channel I have to run through to get out, just soaking some bait. Cuss me all you want, but I'm running by you to get out...not my fault you decided to fish a boat lane

It seems that a lot of people that fish saltwater have no manners. I'm an old bass tournament fisherman and that kind of stuff wouldn't be tolerated.
I fish Rockport and the Aransas Pass area and people are fairly respectful in that area.

After reading this thread, this all sounds like another good reason to stay out of the sun and not fish the summer.


I'll just wait till fall to drag the boat back out. Cause everybody'll be hunt-n deer.

How long has it been since you bass fished?? I'm not gonna say they're the worst cause it seems most people don't give a crap anymore and since they can't find fish on their own they just run you over and mark you. I usually just ask them if they got it when they come by! I hardly fish Palestine on the weekends anymore. People just looking for crappie rigs fishing somewhere!

A friend and I were bass fishing out of my canoe one afternoon in a very stump filled slough. We were catching a 2-3 pound bass every other cast. A bass boat with a 200hp motor came by us wide open less than 20 feet from us, dang near swamped us. 50 yards past us he hit a stump and knocked the foot off his motor. He hollered at us for some help getting to the boat launch across the slough....ya'll know what we told him he could do

I use to blow up, yell, cuss, shoot the bird, cut do nuts, etc, etc. It's not worth it. It's not worth the stress.

I pretty much get run over, cut off or otherwise messed up daily. It's amazing we catch as many fish as we do on the weekends. Most of the time it is by folks who I am convinced just don't know any better. But many just don't care about anyone else and do know better.

The general stupidity I see is mind boggling. Like the guy who has to drive over the top of a piece of structure. Drives across it to get upwind and start a drift vs drive around it to get upwind. So they run across, kill the motor and drift back thru where they just ran. I see that all the time. It screws up everyone's fishing, not just their's. Also the guy who is oblivious to everyone. There are 20 boats drifting a popular drift spot and everyone getting along and respecting one another's space and here he comes, going from point A to point B and doesn't give a rip where he runs. Goes thru the whole big group of drift fishermen like a slalom course. Just as easy to circle upwind and not run through where everyone is fishing. And I can't tell you how often I stop to make a drift and am all alone, get ready to go to go back around for another drift and I have 9 or 12 boats lined up on my drift. One boat stops and oh, shoot, they must know something. We better stop and see what they are catching. That all happens dang near daily. Plus many more neat tricks.

Dad and I were in Petersburg,AK fishing for Halibut on DIY trip. We were with a group of 14-16 people at the lodge. Was 1st time up there and didn't know anyone. Well after couple days of fishing Dad and I were catching limits everyday while others weren't catching any. We get to our spot and there's 3 boats there from our lodge within 100 yds of each other and we found a spot safely away from them. One boat told us no one had caught anything in 2 hrs. In 45 mins Dad and I already had 3 halibuts in boat. One of boat pulls anchor and ends up anchoring 40 feet from us. I was pretty ****** about it until one of guys has to take a pizz off boat in 2-3' wakes. I kindly snapped an up close picture of him pizzing. Well that evening while eating dinner with everyone that guy started quizzing me on what we were doing to catch fish so easy. I told him 1st off don't get so close to other boats and proceeded to show him pic of himself pizzing off side of boat and the picture ended up getting passed around the whole lodge. He was pizzed but guess what? NOT ONE BOAT FISHED WITHIN 100 YDS OF US REST OF TRIP

Wouldn't it be more polite to idle by them? Those fish in the back lakes have to travel to get there through that canal. All fishermen deserve respect, regardless of their means, methods and location.

I fish Big Lake/Calcasieu in La when the bite is good and this is a real deal over there. Several guides will keep their fish carcasses from the day before and on the way south, they drop some in a couple of areas and the birds will get on them fast. It takes a bit for folks to see what has happened and by that time, the guide boats are well south of the crowds and have the fish to themselves for a little while. It only took two mornings of that for me to learn and I just keep heading down the lake.

Some places you have to stay on plane, they know this, they just park their boats there anyway. And I have idled by many times as well when the depth allows, got yelled at for that too. I'd rather someone just stay on plane and get on with it, quicker you can run through the quicker everything will settle back down. Spend the time idling through you're more likely to push any game fish out of there for a longer period of time

If a person is anchored in a known boat lane, Iím not coming off plane unless itís to avoid an accident. My boat drafts about 8-10Ē less on plane than at idle and like many things in life, I need every inch I can get.

I won't fish an area that boats have to run through for obvious reasons. If you're gonna anchor up there like you own it, be prepared to be really ****** at a lot of people.

Used to fish with a couple of brothers. One of them had a BIL that was a badazz. One time they were wading & a couple of guys came blowing in & drifted right up on them. Like rod touching distance. Words were exchanged & next thing my buddy knew his BIL was in the boat & commenced to whup up on the 2 guys in there. My buddy said his BIL calmly jumped out of the boat & said I bet they mouth off further from waders next time. LOL!

I think the poor etiquette is a product of a sense of entitlement, our changing culture due to the beginning of overcrowding, and 'why not me, everyone else does it'. it a shame. I've been wadefishing exclusively for speckled trout over 30 years, and get to fish 80-120 days per year... up until jan 1 or 2018, I released every trout that I thought had any chance of surviving....I brought enough home that were tore up from trebles to have all the fish we could ever eat.... last few years I got so exhausted from the crowds(I only fish during the week), poor etiquette, and having to listen to everyone's radios out on the water I started filleting every fish I caught.. the 1st few 27-31" trout I filleted made me sick to my stomach, and I had a hard time sleeping for a few nights.. now I don't want to leave any for the masses.. 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

Talk about a sense of entitlement. This post is heavy in hypocrisy.

Those dang youngsters getting out and enjoying a day on the water and catching fish how they want to, shame on them. That's just terrible. If they can't catch a fish like you do they don't deserve anything you get to enjoy.

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

Happens every year on Lake Livingston, Park the boat the family and I start getting bites and next thing you know you have 3 boats pulling up trying to get in on the good luck...Common courtesy is a thing of the past

Lately my biggest issue has been IDIOT jet ski people. Drifting a small bay and jet ski idiots running super close. Then they wave.

Stale chex mix and cheetos stay in the boat.

I saw something similar on Sabine once. Boat rolls in on some waders...right between two of them. One of the waders threw his arms in the air like "WTH".(I was too far away to hear words) This BIG guy jumped off the boat and went after the smaller of the two waders and that little ******* beat that big man like it was his favorite hobby. It wasn't tough for that big man to get ahold of that little wading fellow but it was **** sure hard for him to let go of him.

They don't care who's day they ruin as long as they can tell their peers they caught fish.
Hey, then when you're not limited out and back to the ramp by 7:30, it was a "grind"
