First of all let me say that I have nothing against bass anglers; I enjoy chasing after bass from time to time. I don't have anything against fishing out of fancy bass boats either. I do have a problem with guys who think that they own the water and those of us who throw out some jugs & noodles are encroaching on their territory. This past weekend some buddies and I spent a couple of days running jugs. Three of us had a full complement of jugs & noodles, so there where a lot of hooks in the water. We were introducing six other guys to the joy of this leisurely activity. We had two party barges and had a good time until Saturday morning. That's when the bass fishermen showed up. With no regard to our equipment they would blow through our jugs. A few boats even made passes at us dangerously close. No slowing down, no going around, and many dirty looks. We were in a wide channel with plenty of room for everyone. It almost seemed that these guys were delibrately trying to screw up our stuff. I learned at an early age to run a boat and was taught to respect other boaters and fishermen. I always slow down when passing boats or bank fishers and I am careful to avoid interfering with other people's fishing. Just wanted to vent a little. Thanks to all boaters - bass boaters too - who do things the right way.
