I read an article on espn earlier about a bass tournament in Kentucky a few weeks ago. It got me thinking. Evidently, there was going to be another couple of smaller, amateur bass fishing tourneys on the same lake the following weekend. During the tournament, there were amateur anglers motoring up to the pros, marking the spots on their gps, and then motoring on about their merry way. I know this isn't illegal, but I wonder about the "what ifs" that this could bring up. Seriously, what if you were fishing and had someone slip in on you and swipe your spots, just so they could return at a later date and hit them? What if you were a professional guide, and had someone sniping your spots? What if you had worked hard to learn a lake for a tournament, or for your own business, and someone slipped in on you and simply by following you around for a while they knew your best spots? Whatever happened to the idea of earning things? I mean, I don't mind someone asking me where to catch some fish, because at least that leaves the option to me to share the info, or maybe not. But to intentionally utilize someone else's research and hard work to your advantage, to me this is just wrong. Let me end by telling you guys a story.... I was fishing with a catfish guide a few years ago & I asked him if he had ever had someone slip a gps unit along for the ride while on the boat. He sais GPS my a$#@!!!! He then told me a story about a "single" that he took fishing one day, who had all of his buddies follow along in their own boat and fish by them for the whole day. I said, well then why didn't you just give him back his money and put him on the other boat? He said he still felt like it was his duty to show his client a good time, even though he knew he was getting ripped off. Besides, he said there was absolutely nothing that he could legally do about it anyway. So, what do you guys think? Does anybody else feel this way, or am I just over-reacting?
