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!

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
