Default Doubled Up Charters ....Cory Maxwell

This "Captain" brought some customers to fish our pier today. We were on the end of our pier....washing boats...etc enjoying our property. He refused to move. We couldn't get our boat out of our lift and around him because he said we "didn't own the water." Told us we had our dogs trained well because they jumped in the water and swam to his boat which was very close to our pier. He started talking trash and then tried to make US feel bad for using our pier. He did this in front of his customers while catching undersized fish and putting them in his cooler as well as cussing at us and allowing his customers to cuss at us. It's a regular practice of his to fish our pier. I told him that he needed to have respect for pier owners who want to use our pier and that obvoiusly he was rude and disrespctful and he basically said that yeah, he knows that. He's been told that before. I'm calling the Coast Guard as well as Fish and Game in the morning to report him. He's beyond rude, disrespectful and has no clue about the marine regulations. He blocked us from taking our boat from our pier...said we could go around him. Just FYI

I gotta ask how did he block you in? Was you trying to leave and he refused to move or was he just fishing behind your boat that was in a lift/tied to your dock? Him fishing your dock is 100% legal and he has just as much right to the water as you do. As far as his language that's another story. But if you are reporting him for fishing your dock you are wasting your time as well as FWC and the Coast Guards.

x2 on the video tape. Even if what he is doing isn't Illegal it doesn't mean he should treat people that way. Once his actions are brought to light and the public can see how he talks to people im sure it will effect his future business in a negative way.

I have a dock and people fish around and under it all the time. If I'm fishing off of it they will go around and act like I'm a boat. Have yet to have anyone even slightly tick me off about it however this is in central Alabama and I find the folks are a lot nicer and much more respectful.

Maybe its the negative approach you had to start with that may of led him to be a smartass.

You could have solve the problem by hammering in some of the nails on your pier that may have started raising on their own.
Fish aren't gonna be biting if your hammering nails



I usually wash my boat after its out of the water, so I don't have to wash it before I get in it.

A few old crab traps placed strategically will cost him a few bucks in lures, hooks and frustration.

Really,,,,, Doesnt sound like him at all. Maybe he was having a bad day & u helped him as well have a bad day. Or , maybe everybody was having a bad day. He's one of the mildest mannerd guides I've met. So I'll get his side of the story if thats ok. I'll get back to u. Just noticed your Screen Name. Its going to always be a problem. U ever Ski around people fishing?
