Snapper PCB and a visitor
The craziest thing happened just before we were getting ready to weigh anchor and leave. I saw a black hull center console heading straight at us at a trolling speed. The guy kept coming and eased up along side about 30' off my port side. A guy and his wife (I guess) with about a 16 year old kid driving the boat. ""Catching anything" the guy calls over, and I answer that yep, we've caught a few. I figured he just wanted to tag my number. I'm pissed, but have my wife and daughter on board so I just basically stared incredulously at the guy. Then he eases his boat forward about 100' drops anchor and drifts back to even with me still 30' or 40' away - AND STARTS FISHING! I was in awe. I watched to kid catch a Trigger then pulled up and left.
In retrospect, I should have told him that he was really making a mistake coming in on a boat anchored and fishing, and that some folks might be as easy on him as I was. Good way to have some lead sinkers accidently cast at your boat; or at least get cussed out and challenged to a butt whopping. AL registered boat and I guess either new to fishing, dumb or exceptionally brave.
