Went over to the island on Sunday for a little lobster trip. Ended up getting 12 legals for the two of us. Fished sort of deep, 150- 250 feet.

After setting all our nets, this asshat comes in and proceeds to drop literally right in the middle of three of our nets that were really close. We were not taking up a lot of area.

I ask him what he was doing and his response was, “we’ve been fishing this spot for a long time.” His next response was, “ I could drop ten nets, but I’m only going to drop two.”

After a conversation which included a lot of four letter words, he said fuck it and dropped his nets anyway.

I watched him drop. He didn’t have enough rope or floats to fish the spot. He barely was able to get his first net back before it was under water.

He then tells me that he is going to let me have the spot, because he is a better man and I’m an A-hole.

Zoom in on the picture. You will see my floats off his port and starboard.

You can’t make this shit up.

We experience the same with weekend tournament bass jockos on the local lakes. They think that because they paid entry fees to a tournament every spot is theirs.

You must be pretty young,because it say"Some people are stupid" When in reality,the older you get,it goes from SOME,to ALOT,then MOST,and finally ALMOST ALL people are stupid.
I agree with you Radman. I'm starting to fall into the older group. Fortunately, every now and then, you run into folks with experience and respect for others on the water. I've dropped nets 100 yards from guys and had them screaming at me to get off their spot. And that was on the coast! So I guess 10 yards off your stern and splitting between your string at Catalina, with no one around might be a little close? Nice boat and a lot of money doesn't mean S*** about being a good captain.

Confluence. I watched the whole thing. Comedy. Likes to skip out on mooring fees too.
Yep, you know the boat. Shit show for sure. Oh well, we got our lobster. Just ridiculous that we have to deal with it on a Sunday that late in the season.

I think saying they are stupid isn't right or deserved... that is giving them an excuse because that is just straight up rude and inconsiderate. Stupid can be from lack of experience and haven't learned anything yet, I can live with that, we aren't born with the knowledge... but rude and inconsiderate means they just don't care and mommy didn't teach them any better, they just need a teacher who will give them the spanking they deserve.

We had something similar yesterday further down the island. We were down by long point and had basically the entire area from toyon to LP to ourselves, UNTIL this moron comes in and starts dropping his 12+ nets (yes, we counted 14 at one point) not only damn near on top of our stuff, but also around the corner of LP in the Long Point SMR (state marine reserve). We politely told him he was in a protected area, and when he got mouthy, I used CalTip for the first time. Idiots are everywhere, and it’s only getting worse.
