Im completely tired of people fishing my gulf.

I would say stay at least 100 feet past casting range of the person near you.

OMG!...this is a pet peeve of mine...I can't tell you how many times I have been almost swamped by fools hauling butt past me while standing on the casting deck of my boat. I got checked by the FWC last week and while we were chatting some guy came by full throttle..I asked FWC about that sort of activity...the two young guys told me they get swamped a lot while checking boats...I felt like saying "'re the water police...stop them"...but held my tongue. As for docks...I always give people fishing from dock, shore or boat a wide's the way I was would whipped my butt if I buzzed boats like these hot shots do today...ok...I feel better. (almost hate to see what smart aleck remarks this will draw).....

If you're a full time resident, that doesn't speak in a foreign tongues, I believe you will receive 100' plus a good cast. Otherwise, you're hoping for common courtesy, that doesn't exist in most part timers!!!!!!!

Default maybe

- Maybe they are really trying to see what you are ?? I know from experience, sometimes not sure if it a kayak or whatever until I get closer. Normally once I am sure it an fisherman with no problems, I veer off.

The second possibility is they are on track to a distance spot and you just happen to be on the track. As you point out what can you - except to give soem of them the old "salute" as a thank you

The couple of times that I have seen people out on thier dock they have been really cool and told me to have at it on thier lights and that if they knew I was going to fish them they wouldn't have made so much noise. I know that when I am in my kayak I have had a few boats pretty close. Even when I was trolling out at Johnson Beach about 1+ miles off shore the boats came close...all that ocean and they want to pass by me. Oh well. What can I do.

As you know people in boats or wading can fish all over your's and my dock. They are not allowed to get on the dock.

My dock is on the ICW close to Shoreline Park and I get allot of fishing traffic. Probably b/c of the years and tons of concrete that has fallen underneath the dock.

The worst problem is Jet Ski's..! They unload at Shoreline and head west past my dock without a care. The braided line I use usually slows them down in one way or the other...!!

During the week end in the pensacola bay area , this is a problem for me .i can be fishing and boats buzz me like they don't see me. Fishing is so frustrating when some other boaters do not use etiquette, from what i have experienced, it appears to be younger utilizing daddies boat. More over every body is in a hurry to get out side the pass.
Unfortunately i share the same thoughts as you..
