LOOK BEHIND YOUR BOAT ! ! !

Next time you pass a boat and slow down turn around and see if you are idling...Idle is if you go any slower your in neutral...1/3 or half throttle is not IDLE....If you choose not to IDLE just nail it and run past wide open....They ought to pass a law that you idle past other boats and have wardens out there enforcing it...Maybe if some people have to pay a ticket it will register in their head...It doesn't take but a minute to slow down and let someone fish in peace like you would want...If that minute means that much leave home ten minutes early and you have ten boats under your belt...The best of you are the ones run thru half throttle and holler,,,,THEY BITE'N ???? Maybe if you slow down you'd get an honest answer...

If you see me stay on plane don't slow to 2500 rpm and think you're being courteous. If your in a small dingy I slow down otherwise it's worse.....just use common sense if your in a big boat deal with it.

Bow pointed straight up in the air, motor bogged down, throwing a 3 foot wake....and they wave at you like they are doing you a favor.

Yep got dum Azzs born every minute , I go out this morning for a little peace of mind, had the most amazing spot catching an releasing couple small reds and here comes this fancy boat ( guess mommy & daddy bought it for him) the guy comes right up behind me at half throttle got a wave you could almost Serf off of and he’s telling me sorry sorry , I just raised my arms up in the air and just shook my head ! Were do these clowns come from? Is the Circus laying off clowns ? No respect anymore, and no dam common sense!! 🧙‍♂️🎣

We can’t stop what’s coming. As time marches on, we will see more of the things we don’t like or agree with. So enjoy it when things are in your favor.

Wiz,Ya ought to be glad ya not fishing the T-Funky.Today was fine,Sunday looked like a circus out there,not necessarily discourteous boaters just lotta traffic.I was nabbing a few sac a lait in Main River very early,bite stopped and he searched and searched to find a few more went back later and could not get em to bite and coulda been extreme boating pressure PLUS near gale-force winds not allowing me to stay on one particular spot to finesse em up!!!
