Saturday I creeped in to a large pocket down by the dam that was easily big enough for two boats to fish opposite bank's. Two guys in a red Triton I believe started mumbling at eachother and then I heard "I'm gonna have to pull out the 12 gauge apparently because we fishing for a something thousand dollars"

I was by myself so I kept fishing with a red face but it took every ounce of self control I had to not drive around them with my outboard trimmed up spraying water all over. What makes anglers that miserable out on the water? If you are going to act like that then you are doing it for the wrong reasons.

People like that, take ALL the fun out of fishing. What a sad life that must be.

Sorry that happened...some guys like this give ALL tournament guys a bad rep and it shouldn't be like that.

True enough. I have fished a lot of tourneys in my 30 years from BASS & FLW opens to clubs and most everything inbetween. I see more and more poor sportsmanship and outright &ss holes than ever before. Whether it's for a few hundred or a few thousand people just don't seem to f?cking care about common courtesy or sportsmanship anymore. I have to believe there are still a great number of competitors that still hold high values and maintain a true moral compass because otherwise what's the point? Who wants to compete with poachers and cheats? I love tournament fishing it's the greatest rush I have - racing across the lake at dawn at 70mph high on coffee, anticipating fishing success. If that don't get your blood going your in a coma.


Fishing in not a matter of life and death
Its much more serious than that.

Just put it back on them, by you having a good time. Stick a fish & whoop it up, sing, whistle, laugh out loud while you fish along. You're letting them accomplish their goal of getting in your head. Life's too short & fishing apportunities too few to let some jerkweeds get you worked up. If all else fails, beat 'em to the draw! Lol

I am on your side here SnK, but it always amazes me which direction these threads are going to go. The funny thing is that a thread could have been started by the guys in the Triton complaining about you and there would have 3 pages of parroting how you have no courtesy.

Just the other day someone was the person fishing and someone else came in on them. Everyone was up in arms about that for several pages. So what is it...if your there first you get to fish all the water you think you have claim to OR if you come into the same general area as someone who is already fishing and they cuss/threaten you for it they are the bad guy? Just trying to get my etiquette straight here... stir


See you on the lake and have a great day!

Which pocket down by the dam is so good that you continued to fish even after someone threatened to shoot you?
