Do You Pack?
The First Time I Fished At Night By Myself, I Was In My Early 20's. I Love Flathead Fishing, And Fishing At Night Is Just The Cost Of Doing Buisness. I Never Thought Of Taking a Gun, I'm 6'1, Over 200lbs. And Have Always Been Able To Take Care Of Myself. I Fish The Most Southeastern Part Of California, Down By The Mexican Border. One Day, Right Before Dusk As I Was Going From One Spot To Another, I Noticed A Mexican Guy Waving His Hands And Trying To Get Me To Stop. I Began To Slow Down, It Was Then That I Noticed He Had One Hand Behind His Back Now. As I Got To Within 25 Feet Or So From Him, I Floored It, As I Passed By Him He Raised A Pistol, I Kept Waiting For A Shot To Come Through The Truck, But It Never Did. The Kicker Was That About 50 Feet From Him In The Bushes Were Another 4 Or 5 People. I Am Convinced That If I Had Stopped I Would Have Lost My Truck, Or Worse. To Each His Own, But I Know What Time It Is. Do I Pack?.......I Do Now!!!

I carry the 18" shotgun when on the river but if I'm in a public area I just carry a can of hornet spray. It wont kill them but they'll wish it did.

It's a part of the "doomsday" box. I've got a watertight box that also carries flares-tools-matches -lighters-extra clip-extra ammo-MRE'S . Wintertime- I have a survival blanket. Most items are individually packaged in their own waterproof packages. Been boarded by the Coast Guard -Parish Water Patrol-La Dept of Wildlife and Fisheries. With all boarding agencies ,there was absolutely no problem IF declared BEFORE boarding. Only one instance was the box ever checked .

I don't but I'm a lake bank fisherman so the "threat" isn't really there. Maybe a water moccasin here or there. .22'n some frogs would be fun though. If I was to go out in a boat on the river I think I would want to be prepared(the boyscout in me) though. Also I don't carry one any other time (well when out hunting I do) so who knows. Plus I think it gives false hope to most who think they have the balls to shoot someone but don't or even the timing in a situation that would call for it.
