Fished team night tourney couple of Saturdays ago. About 11pm my partner and i pulled up to our last spot. Last cast midnight. Had a paper tourney limit and were just trying to cull. Were fishing about 3 boat lengths from shore in about 18' water. All navigation lights on. I look out towards main lake and notice a wake boat approaching. The wake boat got about 100 yards from us then turned directly torwards my boat. They were now running parallel to shore coming head on towards us and picking up speed. I told my partner, I think these guys are going to hit us. They continued on a direct head on collision course with my boat. I told my partner start flashing our spotlight at them, trying to get their attention. We both were waving our arms and blinking lights at them. I was trying to decide which way was best side to jump from. At 1 1/2 boat length away they quickly veered out toward main lake, all the while they shouted F..... You as the gunned the boat and waked us. They then did made a Uturn and again headed toward the shore. This is where it gets unbelievable. As they were heading toward shore ( darkened by the night) they opened up the throttle fully and ran the boat straight aground into the trees. Could not have happened to a better group. This is the best part.After this chaos I was ready to leave our spot. We had about 45 more minutes till last cast. My partner encouraged me to stay. He then proceeded to catch 3 fish we were able to cull with ( including a 20 15/16th slot.) We arrived safely at weigh in with our story and a 3rd place bag.

this world is going nutz
"..The pleasantist angling is to see the fish
Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

Is this the Saturday night the wind kicked up to about 84 mph around 7ish. Water was perfectly calm and the flip of a switch it was on.

I would have been PO'ed for sure but would have taken the high road and TM'ed over to make sure they were okay. It would have shamed them and they might have learned a lesson maybe....

Otherwise if no one hurt then "Good Luck."

So what I can't understand is why there is no mention of calling the law to report them. If they did everything you said that was extremely dangerous to you and who knows what the outcome may be next time they decide to do something like that. People like that need to be reported to LEO and let them investigate.

We could hear them talking, saying one of them was passed out. They called someone on cell phone ( could hear them giving directions to location). Short time later a jet ski came slowly driving by. We told him his buddies were over on the shore. He thanked us and went to them.

U then apparently have no sense of judgement to call bs on any of the story. Once getting back to weigh in,many members of the club described the boat and said they had done same thing to at least 3 of our other boats. Driving straight towards them, then veering away, waking them severely.

Well if they did it to 3 other boats I guess they were lucky they didn't get invited to the boat ramped.

Last Saturday night, after dark, some nut bag in a pontoon boat ran WAO all over the dam end of the lake. Must have gone on for an hour. They never got close to us but I kept an eye out for them.

I have two issues with this. No one called the game warden on them but yet they are waking everyone on the lake and then failure to render aid. Aid at least in the form of calling the GW to report an accident. So quit complaining if you aren't going to do the right thing........they most likely will be back out there once everything is repaired.

Probably some punk kids out drinking in daddy's boat. Should have waked them on your way out and gotten their tag number.
