I'm out on Lake Tyler fishing with our cousin yesterday afternoon. I pull into a little pocket down near the dam on the East Lake. We stop just short of the first boat dock heading in and I get up on the front deck and lower the trolling motor. As I am reaching down to pick up a rod, I hear a boat horn. At first I thought maybe someone I knew was out there, but when I look there is a pleasure boat about 150 yards out and heading toward us at a very fast idle.

When I realized he was coming for the dock where we stopped, I tried to troll past the stall. But...it takes a few seconds to get a boat that is stopped moving, so when I realized how fast he was coming in I turned the trolling motor to high. That didn't work either, so I had to turn it hard to the right to keep him from hitting us. Thurston Howell III who is driving is muttering something and waving his arms around, and the woman in the boat gives us this evil eye look and asks, "Can't you stop that thing?"

I pretty much lost it. I asked, "Can't you stop that thing, you obnoxious t**d? We were already here when you came rushing in full speed ahead, but don't let us get in your way. Just run over us."

How dare a lowly fisherman be in the vicinity of his dock?

No. If he looked like Thurston Howell, III she looked like Lovie.

I had to look up your Thurston Howell reference, but now I'm on board...lol. Nobody under 35 will get it for sure.

Maybe Judge Smails and his wife from Caddyshack works better. Whoever they were, he was apparently willing to broadside us if we didn't get out of the way. He had to have seen us idle in there and me get up on the trolling motor when he was still 250 yards away. Why couldn't he slow down and let us get past? If he had done that I wouldn't have minded him honking his horn. I would have tried my best to get past his dock so he could come in.

Under 35 and I got it. One of my favorite shows! You sure there wasn't a Marry Ann in the boat somewhere?

Ah that brings about the age old question, MaryAnn or Ginger? Hmmmm.

And your experience on Tyler reaffirms why I stay away from Conroe until winter.
