So yesterday I decide to take my son to do a little pleasure fishing on Lake of The Pines . We were going to fish the upper end of Pines. As any of you who fish up there know it's very shallow up there We put in at the Line Star ramp Head straight across to follow the creek channel up We havnt gone 200 yards and we approach another boat that was Catfishing in the creek As we start to idle by them [ a dad and what looked to be a 16-17 year old boy ] The dad starts hollaring at us Couldn't make out what he was saying so killed the boat to hear him telling me his lines are in that channel and we had the whole @&€% lake to go around My temperature blew up but I kept cool and mentioned I wasn't in a air boat and couldn't slide over the sandbars Then he challenges me to come on come on I got something for you Now having my son with me I decided to take the higher road andvtell him he had the whole &@%# lake but chose to fish in the boat lane Now what kind of person is stupid enough to fish in the boat lane and challenge someone to a fight with not only my kid in the boat but he had his kid to There was a couple other boats up there he did the same thing to This guy was lucky our kids were present Cause any other day of the week we woulda got more than he was wanting He wouldn't be challenging anymore boaters Just keep in mind when fishing a boat lane that there's a reason it's called a boat lane not a fishing lane Thanks !!!

Yes I agree Some people have no sense What if I had been an off duty policeman Heck what if I had been just a crazy don't give a [censored] guy and pulled over there and stomped him in front of his kid Would he still been cocky or would he be playing "the victim" ????

If there's water there are going to be idiots there. I was fishing a cove a few weeks ago and probably 25 yards off the bank when an idiot in a pontoon boat came flying in front of me. I was real temped to cast a rattle trap around his neck. He had all kinds of room to go behind me and certainly not shallow, no reason to do what he did. I'm just not ready to spend time in jail over a stupid boater!

You did the right thing. People like that do not think or reason like most men. No matter what you say or show them their brain will not allow it to register. The problem with such stupidity is that they will react most times in a way that is extreme. He might have had a gun and we all know that never ends well. The older I get the more I come to realize that Forest Gump is a genius "Stupid is as stupid does". Your number one responsible is to teach your son the right thing to do and he will remember how you handled this.

I had a jet-skier "protecting" a cove yesterday. I came in 300 yards from him on the other side of the tributary he was parked on the bank on and when I started fishing he cranked up and cut me off from the bank I was fishing after moving to the other side of the creek and cutting off and just sitting there. I fished up the bank and then moved to another cut and watched him do it to another person well away from where he did it to me. I caught 2 while he was watching and left.

That's not stupid that's harassment. Call a game warden in that case, it's breaking the law.

sorry that happened to you especially with your son being with you but it sounds like you handled it the best way you could have for the way he was acting but remember most folks carry a gun in the boat with them these days and if you had gone over there to teach him a thing or two you may be in heaven at this time because he sounds like enough of a moron to actually shoot someone over a stupid thing like this i doubt he ever reads tff if he is just a dumb ole catfisherman but you never know it never hurts to post something just in case he happens to get a clue and jump on the interweb thingy to waste sometime i wish you would learn to use punctuation because it would make your post so much easier to read anyways glad you are okay and nobody got hurt

Sorry I couldn't resist. You type like my teenagers text.

You're assuming he knows how to read...

You can’t fix stupid, sometimes you just say that too yourself and go on, you did the right thing.

I think I've met that guy on LOP he was fishing off the boat lane and he gave me the one finger wave when I went by.
