Default Would you be mad?

If you had gotten to a spot and paddled up on top of a bunch mullet/bait getting killed and started fishin then 45 minutes later you have some guys roll up with the engine blowing throwing cast nets? I know I don't own the water but it seems a bit disrespectful and rude to roll up on someone that is trying to be quiet and IS catching fish with your engine blowing and start throwing nets.

I'd be a bit upset, how close were they to you?

here we go again, okay, yeah I would be mad, but I would be happy I had 45 minutes if action too.

here comes the "he had a right to the bait too" and the "if you don't like it, MOVE" stuff.
sorry, I may have gotten out of the wrong side of the bed today. but, please.

Well I didn't say anything because in the end nothing would change and it would just be a pissing contest. I just found it a bit rude. I did pick up and run to another spot but damn there is a lot of water out there why wouldn't he just go on to another spot. Why should I be the one to move?

welcome to inshore fishing. I have seen (and had) people run with 15-20 feet of me. cut my lines with their props, i mean even off shore I have had people get their anchor line tangled with mine. I guess it's just fishing in the Gulf and bay.

Someone sees your on a few fish, or bait and they want some action too...... so move on over..... yup, i did get up on the wrong side.....

Yes, I would be irritated. People now a days don't have respect. However, I will take time to mention that I went out with Murph (Deeplines) once last year and he was very considerate of other boaters, giving them a wide berth and giving them more than enough room. He had planned on fishing one spot, saw another boater there and headed out another few miles to a different spot.

I think it wouldn't have bothered me had I been casting nets after mullet but we were trying to catch what was eating them the reds and specs. So we were trying to be quiet.

These types have done what they did to you, to others. So many times now that they think it is the way to do it. They do not get scolded or told to *&%$off and so they do it again.

IMO there is no excuse for pulling up right on top of someone who is fishing a certain area (within reason)...find another spot and come back later to that spot if you really want to fish there. First come first serve...
