Setting up too close to one another???

2 posts in this topic

I was out on Green Mountian Lake last night, and we decided to go to a spot that was near, but not extremely close. We are talking about 75 - 100 feet away. So a guy comes out of his shack and says " you got to be f%$*ing kidding me!!!" we thought he was joking, but apparently not. He was seriously pissed off. He said we have the whole lake, why set up near him. But he did tell us he had been there for 3 hours and got no fish, so we went elsewhere, upon his advice. He then zoomed off on his sled to bring a guy back to shore then returned. After a couple hours he left for good and when he went by us it sounded like he was mouthing off to us. Ok if we were too close, which in our opinions we were not, he....

A:) could of been more of an ADULT about it.

B:) realized it was a good 75-100 feet away

C:) realized that he does not own the lake so we can setup where ever we damn well please...I think there is a rule that says 15 feet is the minimum you need to be away from another shack.

Yes, there is an idiot rule of 15' I believe. But there should be a 200' idiot rule!!

Last week I was on an area lake 1/4 mile from anyone. No structure, only a road I made to my house.

After being there in nice solitude for a few days, I showed up one afternoon to find a guy parked with his new hard sided fish house on the middle of the road I made to my house 30' in front of my door!

Again no structure , I'm just trying to stay away from the crowd and trying to get a little peace to myself.

I'm voting for the 200' IDIOT RULE!

      I understand that the SonarChart data comes from user submitted data, but I wonder if that data is rife with errors.  Maybe the users set up their sonar wrong or something to contribute to the faulty data?  As your screen shots prove, they're highly inconsistent.  There is no 37 foot hole just south of the words Marion Lake nor along the western shorelines.  Based on my experience on the lake with my sonar in my boat, the Navionics data is more accurate than the Sonar Chart, so I'm not seeing the value in the $4.99 yearly subscription to the user submitted data. I guess I'll have to evaluate on a few different lakes and see, maybe it is just a problem with the data for Marion, I just expected that the user submitted data would be more accurate, not less accurate   On a side note, I noticed I could refresh my map update and that at least got rid of the data with the 51' depths, but it still looks like your screen shot on the right.  I'll keep checking for updates in hopes of better data come summer.

      I will be up there next week from Austin Texas.  Can anyone comment on the lake and how safe it is after the warm up?  I thought it would be very unsafe but I saw a truck on the ice plowing an ice rink this morning on one of the web cams.   Is there still plenty of ice and is the lake in pretty good shape now that is has turned cold again?  Maybe it is in better shape then before the cold?   I grew up in the area but that was 30 + years ago so any schooling on the ice would great.   Thanks for any comments.

      Was out there Tue.... Ice was getting soft on top. Access was in ok shape. Don't think you will be getting a wheelhouse out unless it's a real small light one.  Had 16-20 inches of ice yet
