I’m on my spot anchored, trolling motor is not in the water and already have 2 boats well with in casting range. How does the 50 yard rule get unforced I’ve got video of them pulling up on top of me and what is the tournament directors phone number?

Feel your pain buddy, been there and done that. I would first ask them to respect the rules and your spot, after that get their boat numbers and report them the first time you go to the weigh in. Big Bass tournaments bring out the worse in some folks.

I don’t have a curfew I have a driver’s license and a car. Women I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant. And I have a bass boat.

Maybe try asking them to give you a little room first.

It's the same everywhere, why should it be any different on a lake?
"..The pleasantist angling is to see the fish
Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

It’s called a 28,000 acre highly pressured lake with a big bass tournament with 2,700 entrants. I cannot believe you didn’t already know that would happen!! It will get worse.

In my first and only Skeeter tournament, the sun came up to about 20 of us sitting on the same hump. Everyone was sharing as best they could. One boat pulls in and starts just weaving in and out of the other boats. There were times that boat had to be within 10 yards of another. All of us started giving each other WTF looks--we had all been sharing fine up to that point. Someone finally says something and the guy in the front of the boat just acts like he doesn't hear. His partner in the back hung his head like he was embarrassed. This went on for about 30 minutes.

Most people are throwing a c-rig with big sinkers. I see one guy start throwing real close to the intruder's boat trying to get his attention. I tell my partner that it is about to turn into a rodeo. Then all of a sudden old boy rears back and sends a 3/4 ounce sinker off the cowling of the intruder's boat. It sounded like it knocked a hole in the cowling. The intruder didn't say anything. He just turned his trolling motor to 10 and headed out to the edge of the armada. We still laugh about it.

If you're worried about pressure on fork in a big event you've already lost

I once saw a video called "How to win a fight in Compton". The guys would pick a fight and the moment before the fight started they'd strip down to a Speedo. Most people ran away from them. I don't know if this strategy would work, but it'd be pretty dang funny! Don't know if i could focus while getting heckled by a red neck in a speedo.
