What the OP described in the post is a every weekend (Saturday) occurrence. The worst part is most of these people have no respect for other anglers. The see a guide boat with bent rods and they immediately slow down and idle up to you to see whats going on. Its terrible and the worst I have ever seen it. The areas mentioned by the OP used to be fairly open on most days, and only fished by a handful of guides in the area. Now everyone with a pontoon boat or a bass tracker is parked in Allyns.

best thing about Aransas pass area is most of those people fish the same areas. I lived down there for a while and even tho there might be 100 trucks parked at con brown harbor only 1 % of them catch anything. try fishing in the after noon down there. every one is drunk and off the water by 3 and you can have the whole bay to your self

Wading up to armpits is nothing.. until you're driving along and you think you're headed for a crab trap and then it Makes a CAST... that's fun. Guys wading up over their shoulders is just irresponsible in today times.

I’ve mistakenly thought I saw a group of pelicans in the water one day and tried to see how close I could run up on them until one started waving at me. Freaked me out!

Sad but true. Been seeing more and more where all you see on the wader is a head bob and the nearest boat is at least 150 yards away. The only savior is their croaker buckets look like crab trap float. It does get scary. Most of Aransas bay is 5 feet deep, and it looks like some waders are trying to cover most all of that.
I really try hard to pay attention, but also like to scout for slicks, bait movement, ect, but on some of these waders, you cant help but wonder what their thoughts are and how much they must hate that fish they are looking for.

Yesterday was by far my worst day on the water this year in AP. To all you idiots that were running wide open within 100 feet of someone’s drift.....your time is coming when someone decides to pay it forward. And where did these morons learn that motoring within a few hundred feet downwind and stopping in someone’s drift was acceptable? I’m glad my daughter was on the boat who had the cooler head and talked me out of being a hypocrite because I was real close to be the guy to pay it forward times 2. I’m used to the typical weekender shenanigans already and they don’t bother me so much, but this weekend it was on steroids.

I mostly wade fish POC/Seadrift and south and its not like other more populous places but summer weekends are still kinda bad, esp. Saturdays. I do everything I can to get out during the week, and in the summer I like to fish evenings (which helps) and at night (which really helps, but...gators). I also try and fish spots as far away from people as possible. Having said all that, I’m not much for government regulation but I really think there should be some type of licensing/safety requirements for boating. The jackasses would probably ignore those regs though and it would just become another tax on law-abiding people.
