Default Pests

My last post on this subject was about homeless folks on the pier.

I do want to apologize to any legit homeless person that is trying to make their own way.

But this weekend things almost got out of hand with not homeless people, but pests.

One guy comes up trying to sell white trout so he can go to whataburger and get some food.

I might have went for this EXCEPT for the fact that he was drinking beer and had apparently been for quite a while. Why didnt he use that money for food?

Same guy wants to BORROW some bait. We give him some. He then goes and gets his buddy.

The next thing you know they are sitting on our tailgate, looking around in the truck for who knows what. We got that straightened out pretty quick though.

Then the new guys that comes up jerks up one of our chairs and starts to move it to his area because he hasnt sat down all day. We didnt like that either. Maybe he should have asked instead of just taken it.

The first guy then comes over to complain about the way we had treated his friend. We then gave them three options. 1. They could peacefully leave us alone. 2. We could call the Police. 3. Somebody could get a butt whupping. They chose number one. In fact one of them lefty the entire pier at the mention of police.

Later on this woman came through, and I dont even have time to tell all the load of crap she got started and with who all she got it started.

It was kinda like they wwere pushing to see how far they could go before we would complain.

Thanks for the ear folks.

Hunter,
Sounds like this needs to be reported to the proper authority. With no reports, law enforcement does not know a problem exists. Until there are more complaints lauched the problem will continue to get worse out there. I know we all like to look the other way but in todays crime ridden society we need to step-up to the plate and take back our communities at all costs. Glad to hear all concluded peacefully and no one got hurt. But, it might not end that way the next time. Take care out there and good fishin.

I've been thinking strongly about calling them, and I think I will next time.

Thanks for the advice ronjon.

Do any of you have the Pensacola Police Number handy?

Hunterclaus, I'm sorry to hear about that. Luckily I haven't had to deal with the things you went through, but the guy on a bike did try to sell me some trout. LOL.

The non-emergency phone # for the Pensacola Police Dept. is 435-1900

Of course - 911 works if it is more urgent.

Default Three Mile Fishing Pier

I read posts of this type and reminisce about the old Three Mile Fishing Bridge when Capt John Soule ran it.

You could take the family out and really enjoy yourself.

Call the cops. You'll be glad that you did. They don't like cops.

Have a nice day. JMHO C2

I've been coming down here since the 70's.

You are right. It didnt use to be this way.

Occassionaly a loud drunk, but they didnt even really bother you. You could tune them out.
