Default Dang Jet Skier!

Went trout fishing this evening as usual...nothing special 4 trout 1 was 20 inches. 3 caught on the mirrordine and one on the super spook.I am out there on the flats, calm, pretty sunset and I see a jetski going about 90 and he slows down to about 50 and for once did not cut in front of me....I thought to myself sweet! Well he went behind me and came up on my side at about 40mph and 10ft from my yak and blasted me with a title wave that almost knocked me off my yak! I was soaking wet head to toe....If I could have got my hands on that little punk I would have drowned him! I WAS SO MAD!!!! I find myself smiling about it now thinking back about 5-10 years ago when I used pull stunts like that all the time! Goes around comes around....

Take a cast at that jet skier tex with your top water lure with trebble hooks it might bite I just got back from a late night trip under the lights hoping to get that big trout and I caught some trout just not the gator I was looking for. I got tired of catching redfish haha not really but I caught alot of them the biggest was 31in all of them release to fight another day.

I would not suggest throwing anything at the jet heads.

The best you can do is get the registration numbers and call FWC. I know it does not

sound like the best thing to do. But just ask one the guys that tried that and

were charged, and convicted for assault.

Get a good description, not all are caught, but the ones that are captured, Oh Boy! The

conviction of reckless operation, rule of navigation and fines HURT.

I had one of them about hit a shark I was reeling in back in July. He was only about 15ft from me, not paying any attention until he saw me and the bowed rod and then the shark. He left pretty swiftly when he saw the shark.

Welcome back Chris

Hey Tex Welcome back. Was that off of Eglin Flats because I have had this happen many times. Both in the Yak and even had two split me on each side about 10 ft away while wade fishing.

Welcome back Chris
That's funny!

I've had a few run-ins with them but usually I just paddle out farther when I'm in the gulf and they tend to stay on the inside.

No this was on the south side of the bay across from Eglin. This punk kid had the biggest smile on his face after he pulled that stunt...there was also a chubby girl on the back of the jet ski I think he was trying to impress!

hey, chubby girls need love too.lol!!!

i personally think there should be a restriction for where jet ski's can be used.

no grass beds, not within 200' of any fishing vessel .

i've had this same crap happen more times than i care for. i know exactly what can happen when you put a jet ski in the wrong hands. 11 months of physical therapy , $70,000.00 in medical cost's a metal femur and back problems just to mention a few.

KIDS,JUST SAY NO TO JET SKI'S.

welcome back Tex.
