These days, it seems that a lot of folks that use our publc lakes and rivers have forgotten the meaning of the word, courtesy. I am sure just about everyone has a story or two to tell on this subject. I am on the lake a lot and I have enough stories to write a book. Just when I think I've seen it all, something else happens that I can't believe. Some of the stupid things I've seen people do are even dangerous, to themselves and to innocent people around them. The bottom line is, we should all do our best to set a good example for the ones that don't know any better. We have boating laws for good reasons and they should be followed to the tee. We also need to show all of our fellow fisherman (and everyone else that uses our public waters for that matter) a little more common courtesy.
