Greenie to the guy who slowed down

No pics but on Sunday AM I was fishing a channel in chocolate bay (one other boat as well) and this boat (think it was a blue majek) was coming on full plane from across the bay ready to hit that channel to get to the back bay he wanted to fish.


Now, he has all the right in the world to come through on full plane but he did not - he slowed down and went at a slow idle and once past myself and the other boat he got back on plane and went about his business. It cost him an extra five min.


I would encourage others to try this sometimes - i always slow down if I see people fishing in channels that are entrances to back bays - not only is it courteous but it is also a much safer boating practice - in this case the other boat that he idled past was a 19 foot aluminum boat that would have had a tough time with the wake that close.

Glad he slowed down for you, but a boat on plane caused less of a wake than a boat not on plane.

Not sure who taught you that but your flat our wrong. If you actually slow as to not disrupt the guy who is fishing the channel and slow to idle speed, your wake is much less than on plane.

Maybe he means the wake you throw when you slow down off of plane and your boat sinks deeper into the water being bigger than the one while you’re on plane.

Why do people idle through NO WAKE zones? According to you they should be going WOT. I don’t think so..

Well you always have the moron who goes through at a very high idle/low rpm digging the stern in and creating a wake you could surf

Living on a canal home in Bayou Vista makes me an authority on what is and is not a wake. Lots of folks have zero clue what "no wake" looks like . The worst offenders are guys on wave runners
