Hereís how it goes Nowadays:

You and your buddy decide to go fishing. Got your minners and hit the lake. You spot this Guy all tied up Jig fishing and catching lots of crappie, hummm.

So you ease over to take a peak. Heís catching some whoppers, Soo, You think maybe youíll drop your minners and see if you can catch some. Nope not a bite.

Well you think, letís move a little closer and drop another minner cause heís still catching big ole Crappie. So as you move a little closer, dang hang up. So while trying to get you hook loose you pull up half the natural brush, but by golly you saved that minner and hook. This doesnít seemed to be working so lets just move closer until weíre within casting distance of this guys Spot.

While you trying to figure out what he is jigging with you get hung up again and pull up some more brush, but donít bother to ask the Guy if he minds you fishing within 10 ft or arms reach of his boat.

You also donít bother to look at the utter disgust on the Jig fishermanís face because he hasnít said anything about your fishing etiquette and complete disregard for his privacy and invading his space.

So you keep on fishing with your minners, hanging up for the next couple of hours and havenít boated a single fish hoping that soon this guy will have had enough and leave.

So This Guy did, only after my limit.

Come on guys, Show some respect and keep your distance unless youíre invited to move closer or at least ask if someone minds.

Myself as well as half the population of Texas was up a certain river yesterday. On the way back to the lake we slowed to a crawl as two boats were tired up under a bridge jigging. I noticed another boat hauling butt up behind us that I don't think would have slowed if we weren't in the way. We pass under the bridge and the two boats that were tied up and this trailing boat seems to be trying to get into the boat with us. I don't think that boat enjoyed my rooster tail. jack


There was another guy that was spider rigging in said river while we were in a little cove running some jugs. Lots of boats going up and down the river. Most boats slowed to pass the spider rigging duo but one ugly skeeter with green power poles didn't even think about it.

If you spend much time on the water on the highway the mall or even working retail or anywhere else for that matter you'll find people with no clue or courtesy, i just smile n think when they mess up the fishing by anchoring in or running thru a school of fish on the surface it just leaves more out there for my next fishung trip outing

It take allot of patience to fish especially in the Spring. Everybody wants to catch a fish and have "some level of knowledge" on how to do that...lol.

Also, Ski boats and Wake boats were even out in force today.

Welcome to Lake Fork
And let's not forget the old fella that seems to think the launching Dock at 515 West is his private catfish fishing dock. The 1st time I used this ramp in my new boat, I pulled on the south side just as he reeled in to rebait his hook. I secured my boat and backed the trailer in. What I didn't notice is that he cast out right behind me!
Yup, that's right, I spent 20 minutes standing on the bracket of my power pole, cutting and pulling line out of my prop!!!
He has been there every evening that I've used that ramp since with lines out on both sides so that nobody can use the dock
I'll be paying a little visit to the SRA office on Monday to discuss this issue realmad

had a guy last year literally park on top of my cork while fishing on a brush pile with his jon boat ( close enough i could have climed in the boat with him) . he told me if i didnt want that to happen then its my fault cause i cant afford a boat. my trolling motor on my stratos is worth more than his truck but that gives him a right to park on top of me..... hard to keep cool with morons like that out there.

Someone needs to calmly explain to him that it is not a fishing dock.

Bull crappie's saying at the bottom of his post about the original side scan device hit home yesterday. I was on a spot where I have put out some pvc and brush when I noticed a bass tracker idleing along real slow. I looked up and he didn't seem bothered that I just stopped fishing and stared at him as he watched me through binoculars.
