    While I don't agree with what that boater did to you, your throwing 4oz sinkers at him and his boat is a second degree felony, and I personally would assume (if it were me having 4oz chunks of lead hurled at me) that you were trying to kill me....in which I would have cast multiple chunks of 124gr. hollow point lead back in yourr direction. A) I would never do that to someone fishing from shore. B) I'm not trigger happy and would never be in that situation, nor would I shoot at someone casting sinkers at me....and C) I'm just letting you know that your response is a felony and that most boaters have a weapon on board.....Not threatening you, just a heads up.

    Not to mention, all Pathfinder owners are entitled to whatever area they want to fish, yours too....so move next time you see one or have one cruise up on you.

    Of course I could be a little more tactful and just wait for them to cast then cast over them and snag their line and take off running,peeling as much line off their reel as i can before they cut it...lol

    I love taking a newbie out fishing, taking them to a new spot, doing all the work, catching bait, rigging up, setting rods, and then when a really nice fish hits, letting them take it. Then after they bring in the fish, they commence to bragging to you about how "they" caught a bigger fish than you.

    we can alllll get along simply.....

    Ask yourself before you drop anchor 20 feet away.... Ask yourself before you motor across a flat 20 yards from a kayaker... Ask yourself before you walk over toward a wader and fish 25 yards from them on a 2 mile open flat..... "Would it bother me if they did that to me"

    Common courtesy goes a loooong way

    This has to be one of the funniest posts of all time. Partly because of the mental image, partly because of the nugget of truth. I about peed myself!!!

    Guys who do not put their rod in a rod holder when getting a drink or bait. Just leave them sitting against the gunnel for people to trip over.

    That is really the only pet peeve, but these are things I try to do when I go on someone else's boat.

    Wipe the gunnels off after landing a fish or dropping cut bait on it.

    If you get the last piece of cut bait, get some new stuff out of the cooler.

    Pull your line up with someone else has a big fish and you are in the way.

    Keep your line out of the motors.

    Ask others if they would like a drink when you go to the cooler.

    Don't tell the other anglers that you have to be back at a certain time, and if you do, let them know "BEFORE" you leave the dock.


    Other than that, I am pretty chill.
