I usually don't have a problem sharing especially if someone asks. Never do I mind if they have kids on board.

When people come in hot or poach a paddie do you say something or do you just cry on the interweb? I bitch at them sometimes to slow down or something like that.

At the same time it's ok to be a rookie cuz we all were at one point. I found a kelp paddy one time and the next thing you know I had 6 + boats around me and it was ok fishing still. One boat the guys kicked it in reverse to back up to the paddy . I yelled and said what are you doing don't do that! They said we're getting back up to the paddy. I said you're about to fuck it up for everybody follow me and then just drift by it. They did and everyone kept catching. I think they just didn't know.

I'm not gonna lie though after how many times I been poached this year I'll fish your paddy if I see you bendo. I'll hail you and ask first though out of common courtesy. I'm fishing it regardless though.

I would like to see a screen shot of your gps route showing where this guy was claiming his paddy.If there was over 15 degrees of variation in your trail leading to this paddy,which would prove that you were boat hopping and not looking for your own paddy, then I would have to say sorry Charlie YOU,yes YOU are were and is THAT GUY!

Let the guy have his paddy...leave him be.Its obvious he does not want to fish with that guy and that guy and that guy and that guy.
I is not THAT GUY.
We reeled in the trollers, as it was 1/4 mi off our bow when I saw it. THAT GUY, showed up moments earlier. I have learned to live with sharing paddies after this season, lol.

I am one of those PB'ers out there this year and all I see is bitching about this person came up to my paddy, does everyone think that there is a paddy out there for every single boat that is out on the water, lets be real here and stop bitching about reality. Sorry had to jump in.
