    This past Thursday my wife and I were fishing some shallows and this guy in a ski boat comes by full throttle not 30 yards away and makes a big loop and goes back the way he came. Boy was I mad. Tossed my little Tracker all over the place. Mile of open water and he buzzes me. I slow down every time I pass someone fishing, spider rigging, trolling or anchored up. A little courtesy used to mean something in this world.....

    I fish marinas a lot in the summer. They are pretty serious about that no wake policy. I have had waves rolled into the boat when fishing the main river. Involuntary carpet cleaning.

    I’ve had confrontations in past years. One that sticks out was a couple of college ski team guys that went out of their way to throw a wake from the boat and the skier tried to spray me. I donated a devils horse to a ski vest that day.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    Yesterday at Alum Creek here in Ohio I had an encounter with a wake boat. The woman driving was oblivious to her surroundings and cut across my bow within 20 yards with a man riding the wake. I stopped well in advance as I had seen her coming and got started and turned into the wake in the nick of time. It still raised the bow and slammed it back down. 2 seconds later a large cabin cruiser flew by from behind and rocked me all over the place, at least he waved...
    I had hidden in coves all day in no wake areas and there are still folks who don’t understand no wake policy/ zones. Very frustrating.....

    Those big cruisers roll a big wake also. The wife wanted to ride earlier this year. We were out on the river mid day and met a cruiser coming at us. I underestimated the wake he was throwing and hit it a little too hard. She was taking a drink from a bottle of water. She turned that thing into a portable face wash station. She looked at me with water dripping off her face. All I could say is that scoundrel in that cruiser sure got you.

    I have seen them pull skiers through areas full of submerged stumps. I don't know if the gators will bother them.

    When I lived on the Texas coast near Galveston my cousin and I would do a lot of wade fishing. Several times we had people on jet skis run through the area we were trying to fish. Our solution was to tie on a large sinker with the biggest treble hook we had and then try to cast it into their path. Never caught one but would try again.
