Default flounderers's consideration program

Took my 22' Pathfinder outlast night. The plan was to do some trout fishing, then try the reds at the pass. Lastly we bungeed a couple of starfires to the bow and started sticking flaties east of the ft pickens pier. Half an hour and3 fish later, here comes a Carolina Skiff(T-top and lights half way back)under outboard power (we were using my trolling motor). The ?captain? proceeded to slip right in front of us even tho we voiced our objections politely, like um "we weren't done yet", um..."thanks for getting those for us" and "i guess we might as well go home now thank you" We followed them for an hour without a fish till we did go home.

I used to stick flounder in that areafor many years, never had anyone exhibit suchblatant lack of consideration! Ya'll can have it all to yourselves.

yeah i agree. I go once or twice a week. I have been cut off just like that twice now by a Bay Stealth Skiff. But I will remember if I ever see that boat in need ofANY assistance. It sucks no consideration for others.

I understand your frustration. Why do you used your trolling motor at the pass? Too much current and waves to be efficient. Do you expect him to slug behind you all night at a snails pace. He is an ass for cutting in fromt of you. I would have gave you some room for at least a hundred yards before getting back to the beach. Would you be pissed at me?

I have a question... You say he was under outboard power and cut you off... Was he fishing under power and came up to you from behind? Or was he running under power and pulled in front of you and began fishing?



Im not trying to open a can of worms or anything, but we flounder under outboard power as well and usually much faster than many other fishermen. Often we come upon a fellow fisherman from behind and, as a general rule, we will pull off the beach to pass, give the other boat a clean stretch of beach (hundred yards give or take) and then we'll pull back in and continue fishing.



I can't be upset at someone fishing faster than myself, but I can sure get my panties tied in multiple knots if someone blatantly runs up in front of me and swings into the beach.

I also hate blatant disregard for fellow fishermen. I feel 100 yards is considerate. You will have others always pull in front of you, either starting or passing. Alot of the time they will give you a chance to pass them (turning to stick a fish they just passed). It's the way it is. I have found if you are seeing fish on a certain stretch of beach (200 yards), looping back around you will be suprised at how many fish have moved back in.

I guess what I am trying to say is you have to adapt to all of the conditions you are presented whether natural or human.

Good Luck Next Time,

Spike

Last time I checked my license said "Florida". I can stay in front of you all night long and there ain't a damn thing you can do about it except try to get in front of me.
