artificial intelligence is no mach for my natural stupidity
He who laughs at himself never runs out of things to laugh at.
I actually came across that sort of thing a lot at Utah Lake. People have no problem crowding you out there, especially if you start catching fish.
Don,, the old IceSkrat.
Never assume a great day fishing is a great day catching...
Annoying to say the least. Like it was said above, that particular harbor offers a unique opportunity because of the spring, but I'm just about fed up with it because of the locals -- NOT the "Asians".
The exposed gun kind of eluded me as well. I guess welcome to the wild west.
You guys did listen to the news about the gentleman the pulled his gun on dogs?
However, I use to leave an empty holster on my Harley handlebars

"The Gun Is Civilization"
By Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret)
Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and
force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of
either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under
threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two
categories, without exception. Reason or force, that's it.
In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact
through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social
interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the
personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.
When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use
reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your
threat or employment of force.
The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on
equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal
footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal
footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun
removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a
potential attacker and a defender.
There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad
force equations. These are the people who think that we'd be more
civilized if all guns were removed from society. But, a firearm makes
it easier for an armed mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only
true if the mugger's potential victims are mostly disarmed either by
choice or by legislative fiat - it has no validity when most of a
mugger's potential marks are armed.
People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the
young, the strong, and the many, and that's the exact opposite of a
civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a
successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force
Then there's the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that
otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in
several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the
physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.
People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don't constitute
lethal force, watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come
out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes
lethal force easier, works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not
the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level.
The gun is the only weapon that's as lethal in the hands of an
octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter. It simply would
not work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn't both lethal and
When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but
because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I
cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid,
but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions
of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of
those who would do so by force. It removes force from the
And that's why carrying a gun is a civilized act !!
By Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret.)
So the greatest civilization is one where all citizens are equally
armed and can only be persuaded, never forced !!
This is worth remembering, and sharing with others....... right?
Remember freedom is not free.
" Si vis pacem, para bellum "
So less access would mean more room?

I did learn in training to only pull it when intending to use it, and that better be life threatening.
There is a wrong time to pull a gun. That is all.

I'll bet they also get a lawyer and sue you for everything you got, plus what your children will make for the next 30 years. And don't forget the prison time for attemped homicide.
"But Judge, he threw some garlic sparkle power bait at me. I felt like my life was threatened so I had to shoot. It was him or me"
That defense should hold up in any court in the U.S.
Even showing a gun to someone is considered a threat. They call the cops, your ass is grass.
BEST POST EVER !!!
This is NOT direct at one person or at the group of persons:
I Understand the need to vent and had more than my fair share of combat fishing. But your fishing in a area that been well known for that sort of thing. No.. there no excuse for crowding, I 100% agree the guy casting infront of your boat was in the wrong. But really ... Did you take into consideration WERE YOU ARE FISHING ???
There over 100 homes and business in that area cmon you have to expect to be crowed when fishing in a area that's crowded. holy @#@#
And the rest of you thinking your going to pull a Gun....What the !@#$...how pitiful of human being are you? Let brandish a firearm over a fishing spot ???? REALLY WHATS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE...
Honestly Im disturbed with kind of people you think you are, acting all righteous then threatening people with a sidearm... really isn't that what gang members do... so your saying that YOUR no different then when bloods or crips threaten with guns and violence to defend there territories.... talk about your hypocritical nonsense.
