Nearly got ran over from some guys in such a big hurry. They were fishing that Bass Champs Tournament. I think it is so rude to blow by another boat within 10 feet of the other boat doing 70mph. I was putting through the stumps over by Wolf Island and these guys came up from behind me hauling [censored]. Got my partner wet. No sense in that. Later that morning I saw some guys in a Nitro Z8 cut off some other fisherman and think nothing about it. Then the Chevrolet boat cut me off. What ever happend to ethics? Nice job Bass Champs. I will try to get out of you rich guys way next time. That or throw something out of my boat while you go by.

You are correct. I don't want someone to take my life over their stupidity. They can do it without me. I also find it interesting you keep your forum name as Ranger 1 but you have a pic of a BassCat. What does that mean?

Contact Chad Potts, president of Bass Champs, and explain your situation. Also ask him for 2 free Bass Champs hats so you can wear them in their future tournament so no one would get close because of their rules, thinking you are in the tournament. Me first attitude, whatever happened to sportsmanship

Its a shame you had a bad experience. That is not the norm for BassChamps tournaments, but it does happen on Ray Roberts more times I believe due to the lack of marked boat lanes and vast amount of standing timber. A lot of guys that fish that lake regularly have found "safe" zones to run through. If you are near one of those places, you will not know it since it is not marked. They cannot change course or sometimes even slow down due to the chance of hitting something and doing damage to their boat. If you were on the northeast side of Wolf Island, there is an old high line cut through the timber that I used to run quite often. Its a good fishing spot as well. I know this doesn't help you in that situation, but hopefully it makes sense that they more than likely are not trying to be a-holes on the water. thumb

I understand some of they guys complaints about running by them on plane, I also understand the guys doing it have a safe route that they took the time to find, if they were to shut it down then they risk tearing boat up or possible accident, damned if ya do and damned if ya don't. I had an older gentleman shoot me the bird and start screaming at me last year when I came out of Wolf and ran across a very shallow flat, maybe 18 inches deep, I could not come down off pad, he was fishing right next to it in the timber, I understand why he was mad, I started to go back and apologize and then tell him why i chose not to shut it down, figured it would be a waste of time so I kept on going.

Boat 156 I saw you cut another fisherman off when he was entering Airplane cove. You pull right in front of him with your big motor as he had his trolling motor going. I see he had a few words for you.

So why don't we all just argue on the forum instead of speaking up on the lake. Jeez.
