Tournament Blast-Off Ignorance
Yesterday evening during the Friday Night Blast-Off from Fate Sanders my son and I were victims of the worst experience of my 25+ years fishing on Priest.
Upon entering the first cut-through going down river, some yahoo decided it was a good idea to get side-by-side within a couple feet of us and then put his boat directly in front of us spraying his rooster tail directly our way. We endured 6-7 seconds of what seemed like being under a waterfall and had to completely stop to get out of it. So, for the remainder of the tournament we froze our butts off in soaking wet clothes, had to bilge gallons of water, and made do with sopping gear. My son thought he was going to die. Now, I consider myself a mild mannered person, but the worst of me came out when this idiot’s total disregard for others put my son and I in harms way.
We were able to find the culprit, and I’m not proud of my choice of words in berating him for his ignorant behavior.
I know that he is an acquaintance of Brian, has access to this forum, and should know better. I can only hope that this was a temporary lack of reason on his part, and that others will not be victims of his further actions.
