I was on a 3/4 day sportboat recently and we pulled up about 80-100ft from another sportboat on a bite. And when the other boat left our Capt said "I knew he'd leave once we pulled up". Sounds like these guys want it both ways. With that said the Sporties are under more pressure and I get their frustration/anger but just get on the mic and warn the other guy that he's too close don't destroy the paddy.

Well Jason you are a storyteller. And you are wasting all of these peoples time reading and responding to a story that just isn't true. This is a reason why there tends to be animosity between private boaters and sportboats. You are being part of the problem. But if you want to revisit the day lets do it. You were too close, but that's pretty standard. When you called the landing this morning to complain you said that the thunderbird threw sinkers at you, yelled profanity, and that you would go on bloody decks and ruin the boat by getting all your friends to gang up on the boat. You are lying to these people in an attempt to make yourself feel better, or carry out the threat. The sad truth is, the kelp got hit! Sorry, they are precious. But the 'quote' is wrong. "Crowd in? Now there's one less for you to find on your own. Good luck." Tbird fished the same kelp the day before getting small yellow tail and tuna. It was small, relocated by set and drift, and found first. Five or more boats gang piled on the Tbird, and yes Jason you are a follower not a finder. Jason May have been one of the first, but, what he fails to mention is the Tbird was hemmed in on all sides and the only way out of the cluster was back up the drift towards the kelp. He was also fishing instantly. He doesn't say the 80 feet also meant the kelp was between the boats. Call it 50 30 cus closer than that you would loose them in the kelp. In any event the 'you' was not directed at you in particular, rather all of the boats who were surrounding, thus forcing the Tbird back up towards the kelp in an effort to escape. Yes, a tough day all around. Sorry it happened. Sorry about the kelp but, it was the most expeditious way out of there. Glad you got one. Keep it real.

This sounds like the RANT of the Thunderbird. If this is what the crew sounds like, I'd beware to what comes next.

Too close, didn't radio in asking to approach, and a bad attitude... On top of coming up on a paddy others are stopped on instead of finding something else. We got a winner here folks.

It seems that the captain of the Thunderbird has been watching this thread and doesn't want to disclose his identity. Looks BAD on the Thunderbird.

Based on your post he was fishing it and trying to get fish for 30 to 40 passengers and you came within 80 feet ? If so you my friend were out of line. I can easily cast a jig 80 feet so why would you get so close?

NoLDR over and out

Brad
I agree. Double casting length on the high side of the drift

Who calls the fucking landing over this shit. UNFUCKINGBELIEVABLE! How many post have been put up by private boaters asking what channel sport boats are on where are they fishing...etc. WTF. From what I read and hear, seems to be plenty of fish. One report reads like the next. "find the terns. find the breezers, set up chum, catch limits. A step above trolling. Figure it out folks, FIND YOUR OWN FISH!!!!
