Happy Monday fellow Bass lovers! I am proposing this question to the forum because I just do not know where to stand on this. Here was the situation. I was fishing my usual spot on Lake Lewisville yesterday. I was with my Girlfriend whom is learning the love for Bassin'. With the tournament and a strong North Wind, I knew there would be more boats than usual. Here's the rub...This guy in a (ok, I will keep him anonymous, because I will give him the benefit of the doubt), not once, but THREE TIMES motored up to where I was fishing and started fishing right next to me. Ok, it may have been a little bit further away, but it was the stretch of water I was about to fish. Now, I understand that I do not own this spot, and I do not own the water, but I was taught by my Father and my Father's Father, to RESPECT a fisherman's spot, no matter what. My girlfriend even asked, "Why is that guy doing that?" She is just learning and noticed it seemed a little intrusive. We have all scene the animation with the two boats and the one guy throwing his lure at the other. Well, I really wanted to do that!! But I refrained and moved off to another spot. The thing that makes me so mad is I was motoring to a spot, and he fired up his boat on and followed me to it. So I just turned around and went to the opposite bank. Not but five minutes later, here he comes. I even saw him do it to other boats. Ok, long enough gripe and I am prepared for the backlash I am about to get, but was this guy in the right? Like my beautiful girlfriend said, people will do anything for money. That is the reason I quit fishing tournaments. Anywho, I am eager to see what ya'll think. Have a great Monday and good luck on you Fishing excursions this week!!
Catching big Bass is all I think about!
