Default Way too close

Well for the second time in a row I’ve gone home early from spring lake, i had to stop casting because of boats trolling within range of my cast, just feel using a 20 foot plus pontoon boat on spring is a bit overkill, had 3 gas powered boats buzzing around me with their lures a full 60 yards behind, maybe I’m just getting old and cranky lol

I would agree, but did you say anything?

I have had quite a few guys troll boats within 12ft of my anchored float tube on other lakes. One time I had to grab the line and throw the lure off to the side before it hooked me. Some people a very special!

The lovely thing with Albertan anglers. If you're catching them using chironomids/static presentations, they figure trolling over your line will work just as well!

simple people = simple ways ... there is a special kind of stoopid for some, plus they get to edumacate their spawn into the brotherhood

this will happen all year long at my cabin you will be out fishing off the dock and a boat will cruze in and start casting right beside you . I have started to cast right over there line and sage there line that works very well in getting them to leave

When the tournament guys are out at slave it’s more than annoying big expense boat and fancy shirt doesn’t give a person the right to be an @$$. Some times a guy could almost walk right onto there boat they troll so close. I keep a stiff rod spooled with 80lb tough line and a heavy hook either bounce it off the side of the boat or try and rip the rod out of their hands with a hard hook set when I catch the line. No matter the size of the lake have a little respect and give your fellow anglers some space.

So some exercise poor judgement and you feel the need to lower yourself beyond any respect for yourself or others.. Got it.

I'm with you there!


Yeah, I hate that party (pontoon) boat on Spring Lake and a few others in power boats who think they own the lake. If you go early enough in the morning though it's usually pretty quiet. Like yesterday morning had the whole south end to myself and no gas power boats.

I'd stay away from any guy in a belly boat, if they fart once they'll cause a Tsunami in that lake.

I have, honest to God, had an old guy wearing a oxygen cannula have his partner put his hand out and hold his boat off of mine so they would not bash. I just smiled, the old grouch snarled and told me I shouldn't be in the trolling lane. It was somewhat surreal. I was at anchor. Fish enough, and you will see some weird things.

Our population keeps growing, and our fishing / hunting resources haven't.
