    A very interesting article! But the reason I sold the boat was the jet skiers! I think it should be made into a law that they stay in one area of the lake. Even if those areas are rotated and posted every so often. I find them annoying when trying to fish. I'd just soon bank fish or float a stream or river than to put up with that again. :roll_eyes: JMHO. Take care.

    I think alot of people should just for the heck of it take a boater safety class that there state gives out over the internet. It will teach old dogs new tricks sometimes. I know my three kids are taking the Kentucky class on line they have a entire teaching section and a test on there for them to practice for the real test, then it cost's $15.00 to take the final test , plus they get a card for life saying they took the class in most states its required for a certain age and under, but I really think it should be required for all who boat.

    I have worked with alot of people over the past 25 years in boating that they say they know it all but when you ask a question like if you are boating at night and see just a red light and a white light what is that boat doing and they look at you like ( what the heck did he just ask ? )

    I had a boat back into Kinzua Lake in Pa one year on July 4th and the boat ramp was full, someone yelled at the guy when he backed the boat down to the ramp into the water when he got out he forgot to put the truck in park and left it in (R) and the truck boat trailer went into the lake and closed the ramp for over 6 hours until we got the vehicles out, his truck was brand new and so was the boat, but he did manage to mess up the ramp all afternoon forcing people to go to Kinzua Marina over 12 miles down the lake to get there boats out of the water, but the drive around thru the forest service was over 25 miles. I think alot of people would of like to strangle this guy..

    When I go to the river on a weekend I have some very productive spots that are located in "No wake" zones and I manage to avoid the nuckleheads there. During the week is rarley a problem.

    The self styled elite will always be with us.We are fortunate to have them as the world revolves around them.Our own ignorance and inferior intellect keeps us from treating them as they deserve.After all,they have honored us with their presence.It is not their fault that all of us riff raff and trash are allowed to use the world along with them.We should not be taking time away from our jobs of making the world a nice place for them.Their whole life is devoted to themselves,and they expect you to also devote yours to them.After all,their wants and pleasure is all that matters in life.Many people spend their whole life without once thinking of others.STUPID PEOPLE ALWAYS BREED.USUALLY IN GREAT NUMBERS.peewee-williams

    Great article Paul. I think the Ramp fishing, the dock Hog, and especially the trash people are probably the worst on the waters that I fish.

    Bank fishing, unless in a no-boating zone, can be just as bad with jet skiers. Not too long ago I had one that passed me about 3' past where my line met the water. I keep wondering what would have happend if he had hit it. Probably would have drug the weight and hook up into himself.

    I completely agree that everyone on the water should be required to have a boating safety course. I took mine with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary; Boating Skills and Seamanship Course and NAV. All in all about 14 nights of class. The knowledge obtained was WELL worth it. It makes you even more aware of the idiots out there. You need to play it safe on the water!
    In addition to completing the courses it gives you a break on your boaters insurance
    :big_smile:
    This website will help you find classes given in your area
    http://nws.cgaux.org/visitors/pe_visitor/index.html the courses are not expensive, I did these two for $35.

    Oh how true that is. I fish without lights on the bank (until I hook a fish that is), so I need to keep my night sight. Someone goes shining a bright light my way and it is gone for 10 to 15 minutes.
