Ok is it just me, or have ya'll noticed that there are a lot of people in boat's that just don't seem to give a dang about anyone fishing from the bank? Of course it's not all boat fisherman, and pleasure boaters. But there are quite many that jsut seem not to care about bank fisherman. And let me be honest it seems to be almost all Bass Fisherman and Ski Boats, Jet Ski's, etc. I'm not saying they should completely slow down or anything like that. What I am saying is they should try to keep their distance from our fishing lines, go a decent speed, and then if we are fishing in a spot before them they should not come all up between our lines and start fishing. Isn't already enough that they have the whole body of water to fish, ski, etc. and we are limited to a certain number of spots? I mean my dad and I have been fishing at the lake before, and this lake is HUGE, and we are just minding our business fishing off the bank in one of our 3-4 spots, and these bass fisherman come over and start throwing lures all between our lines. And that is not a one time occurance or anything, there has been many, many incidents similiar to that. We have also been fishing and had boats run right threw our lines and then look at us like we were doing something wrong. What is the whole point of this? If I was in a boat and saw someone fishing off the bank I would show some courtesy and slow down some, stay away from their fishing lines, and not fish close by to them. Treat other's as you would like to be treated. Just today I was fishing in a small river, and these two boats come creeping up and right when they are coming I catch a nice fish, well that ended up being pretty unfortunate. They anchored up litteraly straight out in front of me and started fishing and making a bunch of noise. So due to them I have to make shorter cast and I ended up not getting any fish while they were there. Luckily they didn't have the correct rig for these fish so they didn't get any bites and left after not too long. Then I was able to make longer cast again and started catching fish again. Also there were a bunch of bass boats that came zooming by me making waves splash water all over my stuff. Note: It was not all of them, just a majority. Going very fast threw a very small river is just not a good idea anyway though, it's very dangerous. I really doubt that many (if any) people on here do that kind of stuff. I have never had a catfisherman do it to me anyway, it is mostly just bass boats, and pleasure boaters. If there is anyone on here that does this kind of behavior then this is a plead to please show some courtesy to us bank fisherman. Surely I can not be the only one on here that has this problem??? Thank's, Zakk.
