Good call on the lock card...
Well said Mike in your own twisted way,but no matter what thats the bottom line,handle what happen or don't,but this isn't the place to do it...
Some responders have said that Jeff should contact the offending captain, but according to his first post, he did, right there, on the water, and the response he got was to get laughed at.
I have had similar experiences, and I've had three kinds of responses to saying something on the water.
1. I got laughed at, or worse. In one case I ran up alongside and turned the air purple, hoping that if I couldn't embarrass the offender, at least I could embarrass his clients.
2. I got an apology, which I accepted.
3. I got an argument, at the end of which I realized that I wasn't 100% in the right and the person I had called out wasn't 100% in the wrong.
Now, this makes it seem as if I call people out a lot, but I don't; I've been boating way more than 20 years and the above represents maybe 5 or 6 incidents, total, and none recently, as I get older and mellower. Most people are nice out there and I ignore most of the others.
What does that mean?I ran up alongside and turned the air purple
Just trying to help defend a guy that I feel would bend over backward to help a fellow TF'er or any other sportsman period. Wonder why some people don't post? This is it. I'm done.
Somehow I see a charterboat captain shaking his head as he tells his wife about this idiot today in a small boat .......... .
Sometimes the area gets crowded - not much you can do about it.We all have to share the fish - like it or not.
What could be more mundane than dying of old age or of natural causes when there is death by misadventure to be pursued ? Skip

You guys post all this BS about these charter guys
It seems funny no one has a camera to take any pics
We've had our fair share of run ins with a few, we just moved away
They are trying to make a living, we are just fishing for fun
If you are going to slander someones business
Show some actual proof
If you think he was close
Watch the Salmon run fishery in Alaska on Discovery
