This subject has probably been discussed before, but there is something that I would like to know. Has common courtesy toward fellow anglers completely dissappeared. Today I was anchored in an area near the Bolivar ferry landing trying to catch a few fish, when a young man motored his boat right behind me in the spot where I was casting . I guess the young man felt it necessary to motor over the area that I was fishing instead going around in front of me and drifting in. This really irritated me so I pulled anchor and motored around to a different area near the same spot. Well, you guessed it a man with his family onboard a pontoon boat did the same thing, this time I expressed my displeasure by blowing my boats horn. The captain of the pontoon boat just looked at me as if he did nothing wrong. I gave up on that area as more boats were approaching and I was getting more irritated with every passing minute. There was not much catching going on by any of the boats that were there. All I ask is please show a little courtesy toward your fellow anglers. And do not be in such a hurry to cut some one off.
