The last time I went out, I was the biggest nuisance around. I couldnt cast without getting caught in rap-rap rocks, trees, brush, etc. I spent more time getting unsnagged than I did fishing. I guess it was just "one of those days".
Per your poll, I would have to say "other fishermen" but in reality, its the fishermen/boaters with no courtesy i.e. boating by real close, setting up real close etc etc.
Other than that, I would say the slobs that leave all their trash and litter behind. I will never comprehend nor understand how anyone can go to a place and literaly (sp) trash it.

For the record, my vote goes to "other."
This includes a**hole boaters,
bored people who are curious and ask a million questions while you are trying to catfish,
obnoxious old-timers who know the "proper" way to bait a hook, best reel to use, younger folk don't know nuthin', etc.
I'm honored that my thread has had so many responses! Thanks!

I voted other for flying insects, mosquitos, knats etc. I can put up with alot of aggrivation but not being able to breathe without sucking in tons of bugs really sucks.

soft shells not on the list but the thing I run into most.

I've got one spot I know that has good fishing but also has soft shell turtles, we have the spiny soft shell variety and about every other bite is one of those ugly nasty vicious things, they will chase you down once on shore, I'd rather deal with snappers any day.

fishermen who use spinning reels but hold their rod so the reel is on top
outhouses without toilet paper
asians- carp and fishermen who can't read the fishing guide and take a 5 gallon bucket of crappie home
bullheads, who the hell thought it was a good idea to waste hatchery efforts on a whiskered fish that never gets over a pound
drunks who can't shut the hell up at night
litterbugs- pick up your chit when you leave or don't come fishing at all. What's the matter is that empty beer can too heavy to carry with you? dumb ass!
smokers who think the bank and the lake is an ash tray
