    ^ LOL! Much like our hiways, we could spread more common sense around and I’m not sure we would notice.

    What bothers me about the whole story is how the person who posted this did not mention anything about going through a no wake at above no wake speeds and damn near side swiped the boat that filmed the video without “asking nicely” or prior warning and it was the first boat they encountered. From there things went South quickly. In no way was the pleasure cruiser completely innocent here though as the story suggested and the video was an unbiased witness which showed that.

    However, if you are going to fish in a Navigation channel then this is the experience you need to expect.

    On a side note, the pleasure cruiser was stating that the boat was going the slowest speed possible? Do these large boats really go 5-7mph just with gear engaged? How do you dock a boat going 5-7mph?

    Where are the videos you speak of? I think I missed those. I only see pictures.

    It’s on FB Buzz. I haven’t figured out how to transfer a video to IDO.

    Pretty simple, if you are in a navigation channel you cannot impede traffic.

    The fisherman acted like idiots, the captain is likely looking at tens of thousands of dollars to repair running gear. Larger vessel should have kept going true to course in the channel.

    What if you are fighting a 55″ musky in that channel?

    It’s a navigable water way, doesn’t matter how big the fish is.

    Sure, we all have the same right to use the water way but that doesn’t mean we just get to use it like its ours. Unbelievable that this question is even being debated. This isn’t an inland lake where the operator is clearly being negligent by bring such a large vessel onto the body of water…..this is a river with a navigation channel.

    The fishermen in the video I watched were doing nothing of the sort. Are you basing your “idiot” claims on the opinion of the story told or actual facts? Should the vessel have continued at wake speed as well?
