Seriously, set aside a few spots as protected habitat at least. The water beneath the rapids that you’re pointlessly frolicking in also happens to be the best place for fish to chill out in the summer. Fucking humans.

At my main lake, it’s the guys with their fancy wakeboard boats, drunk as fuck, music cranked. The lake is 11 miles long and if there are only two boats out there, the other one will be a wakeboard boat going around and around in circles 200 yards from where you are fishing. They just want people to see them. Just last week a guy destroyed his skeg and prop after repeatedly waking me out over the course of an hour, and then trying to fly past in the 80 feet between me and the shore. I was fishing what used to be a gravel pit rock pile before the lake was flooded. It stalled his boat dead on the spot and he couldn’t move after it started back up. I just said “looks like you found the rocks”, started my boat and drove away.

Gotta fish early…. basically you have from 6-10am of peaceful fishing, then you just go home and take a nap.

I’m sure as a fisherman, the fish lump you in with those annoying tubers and swimmers.

I used it to my advantage today. There were about two dozen people splashing and kicking up food at my favorite pool in the creek. So I went down and fished the bottom of the pool where all the fish were hiding and feeding. Caught enough in about twenty minutes to call it a day and go join them. It’s a holiday weekend. No they’re not supposed to be there, but I made it work.

Yeah, but we have all the days where the crappy weather makes for good fishing. As long as they give you personal space, all’s good.

My formee local pier becomes the domain of kite boarders during the summer, showing off to the tourist’s who walk up and down the pier, as there are nice views from the city, a cafe at the end with sub par coffee, and penguins at dusk.
I had one guy boarding constantly over my lines, until he found out he was within casting distance. I guess a size 6 suicide pattern to the stomach isn’t very comfortable.
Then you also get the jet-skiers doing the same thing on the other side.

My fight is with the paddleboarders. They think they have to use the freaking boat ramp when they can literally go in anywhere in the lake
