Good Relaxing Sunday except for one stupid boater
I haven’t had many bad experiences on the lake, more just your average joe at the ramp taking forever which I really don’t get mad at, just giggle. I fished from four corners to the jones mill and caught at least one on all four of my stops including several at the long point at jones mill. Fish were all caught on shakeyhead or a fluke when they would jump with a few solid 2.5-3 lber. They weren’t on the drop but up on top on the flat part. I always love my sunday afternoons as they are mainly for me to relax and get away, not about catching fish.
Stupid boater! I was fishing the very first point on the right in the second cut through from fate sanders, where the boulders and channel is. I threw out a bouy marker and was fishing the marker. I was maybe 10 yards from my marker and maybe another 20 to the bank so a good cast would come up just a bit short of the bank. Big maroon bass boat (triton or ranger with 225 merc) ripping from fate sanders and I saw him coming, runs in between me and the bank and absolutely crushes my marker bouy and runs over my line. Ran right over the damn thing about 10 yards off my bow while Im sitting there fishing and whole opening available behind me. I raised my arm and yelled and he flipped me off! I watched him pull into to fish the open cove after the cut through and thought twice about stopping, but only bad things would have came out of it so I left. Prolly a great thing he wasnt loading at the ramp when I got back and that the kids werent with me.
