First, let me say that I am not a pro, but I do fish a number of tournaments each year and I have to agree that a lot of tournament fisherman have no respect for other boaters. It has happened to me on more than one occassion. Would I agree that most are like this? No, I don't see it that way.
Here is a problem that I see all the time especially this time of year: Drift fishermen (crappie, stripe, etc.)line up in the creek channels and it is impossible to run without going relatively close to someone. Am I reckless, arrogant, etc.?? I don't think so. You should make every effort to give EVERYONE on the water as much room and respect as you can, but should anyone be expected to idle for a 1/4 to 1/2 mile or run in shallow stump-infested water because of other boaters? Common courtesy and common sense would go a long way on the water for everyone. JMHO
