Last Thursday I was running a contour on the east side of Ray Roberts. Got a little to close to a guy in a bass boat (Skeeter I think) fishing a brush pile.. He started yelling and cussing me to go find my own fish. I pulled up and tried to apologise and tell him I wasn' t going to fish there. All he did was call me an A-hole and continued to cuss me out..I guess he was having a bad day. Just not used to running into people like that on the lake.. Hope we meet again when he isn't so angry and accepts my apology. I would much rather make a friend than an enemy.. God Bless

Happens sir. People are ******** sometimes, just shake it off and proceed forward. You know in your heart it wasn't on purpose.

I realize you were trying to do the right thing by apologizing and you must be a really nice guy to handle the situation the way you did.

Usually when a bass boat pulls up near me when I'm on a brushpile. They stop for a minute and chit chat, mark the location on their gps and continue on.

That's probably what he was thinking when you wanted to talk.

Tod, I'm proud of how you handled the situation. Knowing you as I do, I fully understand action (or lack thereof) taken.

I have boats come by me when I am 'locked' on a location; sometimes I am the one going by them when I've determined they are on the my spot or too near where I was planning to fish. When they start to reach for their fishfinder or I do, it seems the immediate reaction is to think the location is being marked. In my case, I'm reaching for the fishfinder map button to zoom in/out to determine my next location to fish. I assume likewise when I'm approached. This is not probably true in some cases but it helps keep 'cool' either way.

You did good, very good my friend.

Don't come and fish Fayette if you don't want to get yelled at for maybe getting to close or running in open water while someone is fishing a hump. Two weeks ago I took my grandson fishing for bluegills for the first time. We were on spot lock and a guy comes running in to the cove about 50+ yds or so where we were fishing. His wake from him running wide open came over into the splash well of my boat. No big deal because it is a small lake. Later we moved to another part of the lake. I had to go between three boats that were out fishing different humps. One of the boats was the guy who earlier that day came flying past my boat. Of course he was the one that was raising his fist in the air to me with the middle finger extended for my 6 yr old grandson to see.

You did exactly what GOD would want you to do! Keep up the great work and may your future fishing days be filled with lots of crappie.
