Reel Chaos

A bit Angry

Recommended Posts

Was out fishing in front of Fair Haven Saturday morning. Had planner boards out and had a fish on a dipsy.  A small boat decides to tuck in behind me as I fight fish sitting just of planner board following along. Then as soon as I net fish he turns and cuts straight behind me grabbing my line out on the planner board with I assume his down riggers.  This even after I had been yelling and trying to wave him off  as we fought the fish.  I ended up having  to pull all my rods and chase the guy around to save my stuff.

The better the fishing is, the more less experienced fisherman will be out there with us. They just don't know any better .

Sometimes I have to have a less experienced person steer my boat while I set/move lines among other things. I always tell them, assume every boat out here has at minimum of 1-2 football fields worth of lines dragging behind their boats. This usually gets their attention and has them asking me if we are ok anytime there is a boat within 1000ft of us.

There are a lot of inexperienced fisher people on the water That said , it gets crowded this time of year and the 500 coppers should stay in the boat. It’s unreasonable to ask other boats to give you the kind of clearance that planer boards out 150 ‘ on each side and long lines behind them. Sometimes , due to other traffic , it’s impossible to give that much leeway

We had the same trouble Saturday morning off Fair Haven. We hooked a fish and he paralleled are starboard, closed and cut across are lines. We pulled up to close to clear the lines and he try to run off. He needs help.

X2. Charter or not there is only so much water (even on the great lakes) and we have to give room to allow others to fish. If you want your 4 coppers go off someplace by yourself, not with the pack of boats. I am always keeping my eyes open and head on swivel for boards.

Back in the day when radio traffic was heavy I used to broadcast where I was and that I was crushing fish just before I pulled. It was amazing how boats showed up like flys at a picnic.

That’s an excellent point. If you run boards and long lines at any time of year , you better have enough crew to pull boards in and perhaps long lines as well at a moments notice. Otherwise you run the risk of donating expensive tackle to the fish gods

unfortunately there is always one guy that seems to be the issue. This year especially with the word out that the fishing is lights out i am seeing more and more inexperienced boaters that just dont get it. they see a boat and think they have to fish right next to them to catch fish. i go out of my way to avoid the packs but sometimes i think i have a magnet because there seems to be someone i cant shake. its gets frustrating for sure

There's been times when I fish away from the pack then you get that one boat that has to run up on you. Getting very close to see if you're catching fish many times getting way to close even though you're away from everyone.

Sorry to hear. I am sure this newbie did not realize the mistakes he made when cutting you off like that.

 

Well, if it were up to me,  once you could see the hairy bum crack of my ass, then you are probably fishing too close to my boat.
