Kind of funny reading that article. Almost same exact thing happened to my son and I at Alan Henry last Saturday. I pulled up to a point and was zig zagging across looking for fish. Passed over in 40', nothing, 30', nothing, then 25' I marked fish. As I'm turning around I see this boat headed straight towards us. So I killed the motor and dropped the trolling motor to let him know my intentions.
I trolled on top of the point and marked fish. I backed off about 15-20 yards and set my spot lock and began casting towards where I marked the fish.
This gentleman trolled right over where I marked the fish. I was literally casting right at his motor. Didn't seem to bother him one bit.
Even turned off my radio and carried on a conversation with the man. Had my son with me so wasn't going to say anything.
you did not throw a 2 oz spoon at him ?
you did not cuss hm up and down?
you did not throw your bell anchor through his floor?
you did not threaten him and challenge him to a "bank boxing match"?
you may get bashed by the progressive keyboard cowgirls
and BTW, good job on exhibiting calm and cool behavior to your child!
