Boaters Courtesy, Maritime Safety laws & Regulations

In Response to a post from Urulie and a response from fish Dude,Glory Hole Blue Fin Fishing Can we touch base on this topic and maybe we can help ourselves and those that still may not understand Boaters Courtesy and some of the basic Maritime Safety laws & Regulations. lets face it... just because we may have passed the test.. do we still remember and follow what we learned?

I would love to be able to take your guys input and turn it into an article for the home page.thumbs up

It is not just the regs/rules that need reinforcement but just plain courtesy while fishing.  I sometimes wonder why people ride up chum slicks, is it lack of knowledge or the thought that they might steal a fish out of the slick.  It gets really interesting when a whole fleet is chumming and somebody decides to troll within all the slicks.  Another favorite is when a lot of boats a trolling (Bass on Shrewsbury Rocks) and someone will decide to troll out of the pattern that everybody else is using and catching.

One of my pet peeves is the guy who pulls into a fleet of boats that are drifting an area and proceeds to throw his anchor out. I know he has every right to do so, but how about a little common courtesy for the guys who have been there all day. 

Another is the guys pulls right into your drift. As you start to get closer to him he looks at you like...hey, you're gonna drift into me. Yeah, and if you weren't such a clutz you would not have stopped right in my path.

This is why I always try to find my own little piece of heaven and fish away from the other boats.

and let's not forget Mr. GottagetfishonNOW running thru working birds scattering the bait and any fish under them. Don't get me started!

Basically if you come on my drift and drift into me you better move... you snaked my drift. If you don't get it, my boat pole extends a looong way and it is a lesson learned. But then you prolly never learn anyways....

Is the lack of courtesy, ignorance or just disrespect?  Or a combination of both?

Unfortunately, I don't think you can fix that type of stupid Undecided!

However, it is a great topic for those that want to learn and boat properly.
