Default scary boat chase....!

on monday my buddys and i where out for a day of tubeing and fishing on his 16 foot alum boat. we stopped to fish the 3 mile bridge, when a boat was headed full speed at us so we guned it and went foward a few feet. the boat stopped a few feet away and the man driving it started yelling and screaming at us about us steeling his crab traps. we dident even have a line in the water yet and we had 4 people on the boat me my brother and his buddy and my buddy as well as 2 tubes for lounging on.so we got scared and put the hammer down, but he was hot on on our tail he threatened to hit us with his boat and sink us along with a few other cuss words. eventually he just turned away and went out of sight. later we saw him again at the boat ramp and he was still starting crap so my 20 year old brother who is 6 foot 5 got in his face and almost dropped the fat Mexican on his ugly head. if anyone has an encounter with this man please call the authorities we had no vhf so we where outa luck but he was a big problem and destroyed our day of fishing. we need help to stop people like this he was in a small 20 foot cabin cruiser with a 70 hp outboard around the 3mile bridge area. Does this happen often?

I would have called the FWC, 911/ECSD, and the CG for you if I had been there. I've never seen anything like that happen and don't care to.

Florida is in not an open carry state. Open carry on a boat or on the bank you are in violation of Florida law. The only time Florida law allows any type of open carry is when engaging in target shooting.

Negative.. it is legal in the state of florida to open carry when fishing

You are limited while open carrying your legally purchased handgun in the fine state of Florida. This is covered under Florida Statute FS 790.053. There are exceptions to the statute. It is legal to open carry when hunting, fishing, trapping, and while at work. This is covered under FS 790.25(3)(h), (j) and (k). "Anyone, while fishing, camping, or hunting....or while going to, or coming from fishing, camping, or hunting is exempt from the prohibition on open carry."

Thanks I was looking for the statute but it's a pita from a phone.
