I would like to thank the pontoon full of people that parked 20 feet from my 7 year old and I the other night on a relatively empty 1500 acre lake. If you hadnt driven up to within 5 feet of my sons bobber and right over the area that I was casting on Saturday night with that 70 horse and kids jumping up and down we probably would have kept catching crappies. I apologize for asking you guys to move a little bit further away, but fortunately, you were able to scare off the school that we had found. I wish more people understood that it is a free lake and its OK to park as close to anyone that they wish. If everyone could figure that out, I am positive that fewer fish would be caught and it is always easier to keep a youngster interested when they are catching nothing. Thanks for attempting to teach my son that kind of behaivior is perfectly acceptable. Unfortunately, he and I had a talk about rudeness and complete lack of respect for others and the lesson was wasted. I hated to have that talk with him because I think it is important to grow up learning that it is much easier to watch guys catching fish from shore with binoculars and then just horn in on them than spend time on the lake learning how to fish. In fact, if you are free this fall, maybe you can take him out deer hunting and show him how to get up early and teach him how it is ok to sit in someone else's deer stand if you get there first. I am hoping to be back up there in a month so you will have another chance to ruin the fishing for him. Thanks again for all the help.

Oh joy! SF, it is so good of you to see the true value of people. Some people might miss the great lessons to be learned but obviously you can see right to the point. grin.gif

Today while unloading my work boat at the launch, a large group on a pontoon motored in. It seems they had run low on beverages. It must have been a drastic situation seeing how they ran right into the back of my jonboat which was tied up. I'm sure if SF were there he could have pointed out all of the good points of that situation. I was blind to them but that might have been because I was knocked backwards and hit my head on the middle bench. mad.gif

This might have been the same group I encountered on Island Lake the other day. Bad enough they anchor within 10 feet of my bouy, but then they throw slip bobber rigs in every direction. They were nice enough to allow me to retrieve my bouy. I wished them well and moved on. I hadn't caught a fish on that reef anyway

Well, this was obviously the same boat sampling the fishing on different lakes on different days.

Chunkster, if all you hit was your head (I believe you and I could both be considered "thick-skulled") what's the big deal? No harm no foul. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Northlander, I cant decide if people are becoming more rude or just more "stupider". I see this more and more all of the time up north, here in the Twin Cities, out deer hunting, and even during bear hunting season and it is frustrating.

I know of the people that did it to me the other night and from what I have heard, it should have been expected. It is such a tough thing to deal with. You expect it and yet I am shocked every time it does. I just kinda stand there with my mouth open.

I think next time I might be stripping down to the tighty whities and tucking them in like a sumo wrestler. I am sure the women and their kids on the boat would love to see the fat hairy guy in a thong dancing and singing Bee Gee songs.

Gotta agree with you Ted. It has become more and more difficult to fish on that lake without some *&&%( ruining the day. I heard you guys were killing the crappies too! The sumo idea would scare the H out of anyone! The only thing scarier would be MRP in a thong!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff
