Not sure who is worse......
Always thought it was just turkey hunters who got out of bed chomping at the bit to mess each other up...starting to wonder now.
The kid and I show up at the local lake for a morning of trolling for walleyes. Only one other boat on the water.
Hit catches one on the first pass, so I tell him to throw a marker bouy out. We are trolling a line between that marker and a permanent marker on the lake. Catching very little, but expectations are never too high on this lake.
Aboout 10 am we head to the boat launch for a bathroom break. by now there are 15 boats out....come back out and look for our marker and the kid says...I don't see it...I think that boat there is sitting on top of it.We both laugh.
No big deal, public lake, lots to fish. This boat sees us coming back and they pick up and start to move...move 200 yards down the lake right on the edge of a line where fishing is restricted....
Five minutes later, I see our marker flaoting behind the restricted area and floating further into it, (two hundred yards from where we left it).
Now, it's not the cost of the marker, that's only a few bucks, and it's not that they were sitting where we were fishing...as I said, public lake, lots of room. And, I suppose that it IS possible that the weight on our marker took that exact time to bust the string that held in it place, although I doubt it.
Frustrating to say the least. If, on the odd chance, one of the guys in that boat are reading this, remember....stay classy.....
