    Default How should I handle

    Since the fall colors changed here aka the license plate colors. Everytime I go out day or night. Days are a lot worse. About the time I get setup I either have a boat blast by me or they get close enough for me to cast into their boat. I have lived all over east of the Mississippi River and I know that boat laws and edict are about the same everywhere. I even had them come by my slip just below plane and when I say something, I get "I didn't know the small canal was no wake ". I am usually very forgiving and patient but in the last month my limits are being pushed. So what is the best way to handle the select few morons, without risking going to jail. Them over fishing the limits is a completely different rant. Name:  20191211_095550.jpg

    Step 1: get acquainted with the local "fish cops", wardens, rangers, whatever they are called (in GA DNR) who work that lake/area. Ask for their cell phone number.
    Step 2: get goPro or other video cam, or if your cell has decent cam, record the offense. In GA it is no wake within 100 feet of anchored boat. Make sure you get the boat number or a pic of it.
    Step 3: send to ranger in Step 1.
    Step 4. repeat.

    This will probably not change anything, but you will feel better about it. Then go get some spark plugs.

    That is the proper plan if I could get law enforcement on the lake. The last time I needed him he asked me where the ramp was so he could launch.

    Be safe and prudent. I was a wildlife enforcement officer 30 years. Keep in mind this world is full of sorry men. And the majority of all men carry guns. Don't get killed over some fish. God Bless!!

    The true test of good manners as my daddy taught me is the ability to put up with others bad manners .
    but for sure and I agree whole heartedly its about flat out frustrating to try to ketch a fish peacefully on most public waters these days, even us bank anglers get a beating from boats in many cases . they run a creek I like making monster wakes and its a wildlife sanctuary no wake zone with tons of law enforcement boats writing tickets and it never ceases in the winter when the crappie go up in that creek .
    so you see they don't even respect the law enforcement in there and rarely give a rat if you say something to them .so in synopsis I again say this about that , bite your tongue and let them go on their way and you will likely get over being upset long before you would if you lose your cool .
    my 2 cents
