Well its not to hard to figure out..If you where on his land he had every right to be pissed off at you ... now if you where in a boat in the middel of the water he was wrong.....It's called trespassing for a reason if i caught you on my land or in my backyard it would turn real bad for you real quick.

Now fellow fisherman, answer me this. A landowner brandishes or points a weapon, while you and your wife are floating on state property. What do you do? (I have a CCW permit by the way, and I do not intend to return to this area with people that I love)

Best course of action is to get the hell out of there, whether you are armed or not. In a boat, you are a sitting duck for somebody on the bank. If he was already brandishing his weapon, he has you at a tremendous disadvantage to start with. Considering what a loon that guy was, if you had shown a weapon he probably would have shot you before you could do anything with it. I hope you reported those shots to the authorities. That guy needs to be straightened out on the laws before he kills somebody.

The depressing thing is that this guy was trying to run me off of someone else's side of the river. I now am forced to give up a spot I have fished for years, because some redneck isn't concerned about the consequences of stupidity.

Most States have A "normal high water mark" they go by as far as public and private waters. If The property is owned by the same person on both sides of the river , kind of hard to tie up to the bank.
When i was young ,i was taught, to get a farmers permission to fish the river in Illinois were i grew up.out here in Colorado lot of state land to hunt and fish, if the land is leased then it falls back to the permission thing again.

I would have left the area most quick then called 911 and reported a madman running up and down the bank with a gun threating folks and shooting. When the cops show up file a report for terrorists threats made by the guy. Cell phone video in court would have won your case.
