Did I over react?

Recommended Posts

Ziesmer

I live on a small lake. I was out fishing last weekend. I see a boat going really close to my shoreline. I then see one guy jump off the boat and run onto shore. I make my way over there and the guy was taking a dump on my shoreline. I was mad and went off the guy. Keep in mind this is a rural lake with only 2 or 3 houses on the whole lake. In my opinion he didn't need to go right by my house. The guy says that's what people do when they are hunting and fishing and that I should get over it. I was a little upset!

Thoughts?

That's nasty, I would have been upset too. Just like a dog, make him clean it up.

The fact is he is trespassing just by being on your shoreline without permission, besides what he did when he was there. You did not over react. I would have done the same. Get the boat registration # for a TIP call, or a call to the sheriff, if it happens again. Seems like there are too many slobs out there.

If you let him leave without the pile he created then I'd you say you under reacted.

This is too funny. I've seen people hang over the gunwall and let a floater go. Not sure which is worse.

If you don't want to deal with the authorities keep a paintball gun handy. Give him a few welts on his behind as he is running towards his boat with his pants around his ankles. I bet that'll teach him.

To answer your question I would say you under reacted.

I would've ended up in jail over that one...unreal how disrespectful some people are. I don't condone violence, but not sure I could have stopped myself from pounding on his melon if he didn't apologize and clean it up.

Eh. if it was right in front of your place like in your yard then yeah go off on the fella. In the woods, or down the shorline a ways, I would have had a good chuckle and just told them to stay off my land from now on.

Ziesmer, I think you deserve some votes towards sainthood. I go off when the guy leaving the access or pulling his kids behind the boat runs my line over when we try to fish from the dock (I'm not proud of it). We have a place on the lake and a lot of times I yell at the offenders saying "We are trying to enjoy the lake too". How hard is it to see someone fishing on a dock and give them a little room? It doesn't occur to them that anyone else is also trying to enjoy the lake. Some serious SARS syndrome folks out there. They really get an ear full if my kids are swimming and they drive right next to the dock. There should be a class that everyone takes called 'don't be a selfish A-hole'. Sorry last weekend got me a bit cranky with the inconsiderate boaters.

Some of the posts here suggest that anything short of the image below would be "under-reacting"

Jurassic-Park-620x465.jpg

In seriousness... is the land posted? is it obviously private property there? You mentioned the lake is small/remoteish and has only a handful of homes on it... could this be a simple case of confusion?

If I were you I would have made a joke about it with the offender, and made sure he picked up after himself, and of course asked them kindly to find another place to do their biz.

Should have grabbed a shovel, got in your boat and chased him down. Tossed it in his boat and said "Here, you forgot something."

Guess I would have got the numbers off the boat then found out his address and returned to him what he left behind wink

Seriously I would have called the Sherriff for trespass violations and also would have phoned the DNR.

If that had been me he probably would have gotten reacquainted with that pile when he got back to the landing and found it had migrated across the lake and right onto the hood of his truck.

If you ever get the number tracked down, don't worry about hauling it over there. Haul your own over and return the favor, if you know what I mean.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge

      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.

      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH

      Anybody know if there is a pressure ridge/ice heave out in front of the Warroad Access? I know ice conditions will change throughout the coming weeks. Looking forward to getting after some pike.  The last few years there has been a pressure ridge there, last year it went from Springsteel over to Swift. And we've been up there plenty of times when there hasn't been one at all. Just curious to find out what conditions are like in that bay. Thanks!

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.
    • PRO-V
      Agreed!!
    • SaintPaulPaul
      Switch to regular Budweiser and they seem to just jump out of the hole. No, seriously the way I improved my landing success through the ice was to go to small treble hooks. One small one on a 6' leader, a weight and Colorado blade above the leader seems to work for me. If you are on the flag right away, you don't risk gut-hooking them. I also recycle my Power Pro musky line and put it on tip ups. Also, I should add that I always  have a jaw-spreader and 8" forceps for quick and easy hook removal.
    • Iowabrewcrew
      Funny...seems like when the Emerald run slowed down up there 4-5 years ago, the fishing followed suit!
    • anyfishwilldo
      they only ran for a couple days.  They have them on the canadian side but its illegal to transport live bait across the border
