I started my reply yesterday and was well into it when I hit the wrong key and had to start over.
So I just stated the facts. If you come to pot lick me, I will crank up my motor and start looking around the immediate area, thoroughly
for another school. Then leave on plane.
It might disturb the fish that were already there, but that will not be my intention, which as I understand the law, must be part of the violation, intentionally disturbing the fish.
I have had very few problems with 2coolers crowding me when I fish.
The people who do it are people who take pride in having a lack of character and no consideration for others.
Low life in other words, whether they have a 10' john boat, or a $1000.00 luxury liner they have no angling skills and enjoy causing misery for others.
Must be sad to approach life that way.
There was a white Century CC boat with a fellow near my age, and several young fellows aboard yesterday.
Just as my clients started catching fish they pulled up within 20 yards of us and dropped anchor.
They didn't catch didly, because they were not on fish and did not know enough about fishing to realize it.
When you vertical jig you have to be over fish, even 5' away can mean you will not catch fish.
Because they saw us catching fish, and I think they knew who we were, they thought this will be easy, just get as close as to them as possible.
Some of these people have $1200.00 sonars/gps and don't know how to use them, they still just go encroach on others who are catching fish.
The white Century CC did not catch fish beside us and after a while, as Dawn, one of our clients who was spanking everyone in our boat and the follow boat for the trip, kicked their tail too, they left for the island.
The school under us dispersed and we made a short move and got back on fish.
Surprise, where comes the white Century CC with the older fellow who had salt and pepper hair and his younger companions.
They pull within 15 yards of us and drop anchor.
I looked them in the eye and said, "Really? REALLY? have you guys even caught fish today?
The older one said,"Have y'all caught any fish?"
When you answer like that, you are full of it.
We had to laugh, it was obvious that a reply like that comes from being embarrassed that someone has called your hand.
We left, but we did circle around the immediate area a few times
,.....LOOKING FOR FISH.
Strange we did not find any. So we left.
The oldest man aboard showed the young guys with him how not to act on the water around other people really well, and how to make yourself look pretty bad, I don't think that was his original objective.
In fact he might have been trying to impress them.
Young people look up to older folks for direction and copy them, it is part of growing up, choosing a person like this fellow to emulate will led you down the wrong road.
The next time this happens I will use the short video function on my camera and post the film here so others will know what these people look like, their TX #s and faces, and their responses to being called out for being inconsiderate.
