Boating Stupidityness!

This morning I was headed across West bay, and going to take the narrow channel into the ICW at Caranchua. I approach, and there’s a boat either power pole’d down, or drifting in about 2/3 of the cut. Potlickers have lines out into the cut.

Made getting thru a challenge, dragging my skeg as I was lifting the jack plate.

Teal boat, teal t-top, and matching Columbia shirt....so at least they looked cool.

It's strange to me as how with folks like that the thought that they're blocking a known boating lane somehow doesnt even enter there minds.
PLUS, somehow you are the jerk when you disturb there fishing. As it's often repeated here, all it takes is money to operate a boat.

Your first day on the water?

Cant get animated about this stuff anymore. Just motor right on thru. If someone is having a picnic in the middle of the street I would blast right on by them too.

It used to bother me too in navigating the small shallow channel into Caranchua Lake just on the other side of the ICW you are talking about. I typically will fish there during the week to cut down on some of this, and will drop off plane and motor boat past. Hopefully most will be deer hunting from here on out given we will be having skinny tides because I have no intention of dropping off plane then...

Stupidity doesn’t know any better or care, I see it every where I go, be it a Wyoming river or the Florida Keys.

Yep, they’ll hopefully learn.

anchoring in channel

Yup, just hope you don't get shot at when you go by on plane. That you have no choice just doesn't occur to morons. BTW I have found that narrow channels that get lots of boat traffic hold a secret. Fish learn that whenever a boat goes thru the prop wash makes baitfish and shrimp easy pickings for them. I'm the guy standing on the edge of the channel that you feel embarrassed to run past and disturb. If you watch carefully you'll see me cast into your wake. When I set the hook I bury the rod tip in the water so you don't notice fish on.

Well, if you want my unsolicited opinion, it should **** you (or the OP) off if you have to grind your skeg to get around someone that doesn't know what they are doing.

We can call it "not getting irritated ", or "it not being his first day on the water", and bathe in outward tolerance.....but truly it's ok to talk about bad boating on vivid display.
