Default fishing ettiquette

What do yall think about this, lets say you are trolling motoring down a shoreline fishing the bank and some old punk in a red blazer bay fishing the same tournament as you, (yeah you know who you are), pulls up and jumps 15 yards ahead of you and takes over that shoreline. where is the respect for a fellow angler. why you gotta be so cut throat. thats just ridiculous. must be your only fishing hole if you gotta do somebody like that.

When something like that happens to me I just put in a call to Wildlife divison and report the boat for keeping under size fish and while the officers are searching their boat I can continue about my fishing!

Kind of like being "leapfrogged" when fishing for ling on the shoulder of the bar.

We've often run 17 miles from the pass at St. Andrews to Philips Inlet to start fishing in the morning, only to be "leapfrogged" by some sportfisher with a nosebleed tuna tower who powers down to start looking only a couple hundred yards ahead of us.

However, most of the boats who are out there regularly are much more respectfull and will let you fish your line without interference.

Just get on plane behind them and burn the whole flat as far as you can! Then go to your b,c or d spot. There is no need for pulling in on some one to fish if they are there first tough shit!! But it is fun sometimes to catch fish behind a jackass like that.
