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.

That's disgusting. How could you not over react. Suprised he didn't ask you to bring him some TP and the paper. lol

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"

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.

      Any sense to when the walleye tournament results will be posted? Always enjoy reading the names and weights. Aside from Saturday morning, we did very well Thursday-Sunday. LOTS of tiny walleyes in the Frazer/Smart's Bay area, but did manage plenty of keeper fish in 22-35 feet with Lindy's/Jigs and rainbows

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Nice way to check water temps lol ~Tripp

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!
