went out saturday night, my buddy rearranged schedule to fish so we headed out to the mon. all night we had trouble with boaters. they would go slow til they got above or below us then slam the throttle down and blow by us. one boat kept pulling in below us and they would make a gas run, top of tank, and blow out again. they did this three times. another boat came by towing another , i was kneeling down and turned away from the river re-rigging. the boat had a radio on but i thought i heard talking, then nothing,so i kept re-rigging as was my buddy. the next thing i know some drunk hollers over F@#K you A$$HO%#S!!! at the top of his lungs. so i put my rigging on hold and turned around and stood up and was going to ask if there was a problem and they took off. buddies girlfriend was there and she said they were mumbling something about us fishing where we were, then she wasn't sure if they were talking to us or not then that is when the guy yelled. then a little later the boat that kept running out of gas came back ( suprise out of gas again. the fourth time they ran out of gas) either drunk or high, said they knew where the fish were but they wouldn't hit their bait. what were they using and how were they fishing? salted minnows floating on top of water and wondered why they were so hard to cast and why the didn't get a hit in 9 hours of fishing.then they almost forgot to secure the boat before they left. then another two hours of boats flying by and all was finally quiet. i don't have anything against boaters in general but whatever happened to common courtesy. and whatever happened to the fish wardens on the mon. if any of these people would have been stopped they would have gotten busted for drinking as evidenced by all the empty beer bottles and cans floating down the river. there were a lot of logs floating down the river and a lot of barge traffic i am suprised no one got killed. i haven't had any trouble on the river in years but i guess all the jerks were out on my stretch of river last night. and for the person who hollered and cussed at us last night if by some slim chance you happen to be on or are joining this site the next time you see me feel free to dock your boat, walk on over and say what you did to my face and i assure you that you will not look so manly to your drunken friends and your girlfriend as you are flying off the end of the dock and going for an unplanned midnight swim. please remember you mess with the bull sometimes you get the horns. sorry guys and gals but i had to vent a little.
