    Yep. I told him if we went to the bank, it wasn't to talk. I got there first. Was waiting for him. He stepped off the boat and I caught him in the temple. Game over. I got back in the boat, and his buddy was helping him back in the boat. Needless to say, they didn't get cut in front of us any more.

    That happened to me at Paintsville. But it was a guy in kayak and not a jet ski. And just as an aside, why do 9/10 kayakers don’t wear life jackets? Very rarely do I see one wearing their life jacket.

    Fishing a club tournament on Barren in June.... 1980ish. We actually won the tournament, my first club win. I was 16-17, and fishing with one of my best friends Daddy. We're fishing a drop, sitting in 20' of water, throwing up into 7-8'. A houseboat goes between us and the bank. Glenn came unglued, lol. The driver of the boat said something back, and Glenn begged him to stop. LOL.

    I was fishing a bank behind kenlake marina and some guy came down yelling at me that you couldn’t fish there. I told him “there’s not a man in your family if you don’t swim out here and do something about it”

    I quit fishing Cedar during the nice weather months for just this same reason. Catch a fish, 3 boats come in and throw right in front of your bait. I quit cussing at folks because it does no good and just started tangling up lines and cutting baits. That seems to make people leave pretty quickly :D

  11. Not all tournament fishermen are bad though. Sometime around 2003 we were absolutely wearing bass out on a point a few weeks prior to a big FLW tournament on Kentucky. Tom Monsoor, a big time pro fisherman from La Crosse, Wisconsin, idled up and struck up a conversation with us. We wound up in his boat and fished all weekend with him. We showed him a few spots and he showed us so many new techniques it was a heckuva trade off. He wound up 2nd or 3rd that tournament.

    I used to hate it when people would shine their spot light on me in the middle of the night. It's fine if you flash across and see me but to sit there and hold it on my boat for a minute makes me want to shoot it out.

    Ever been lit up by a barge? Being couple of hundred yards away need SPF 50 to keep from getting burned.
