Alex, common courtesy and common sense are really misnomers as they are both rare these days. I have experienced this sort of thing far too often and, I know I will get some flack from this, it usually gets worse the closer you get to a major tournament. This is not to say that tournament fishermen are the only ones or even the worst, but dollar signs in one's eyes seems to cloud one's vision and common courtesy and sense. Along with the problem you mentioned is the ever present problem of people who don't respect the "idle speed - no wake" rules. Some folks simply don't care that their wake is washing out other people fishing and can be down right dangerous. All boaters are responsible for their wake and whatever hazard it may cause, but some boaters seem not to care. (sigh)
Just my 2 cents worth...
