De-escalation = fish

Thought I'd share my Easter wade fishing experience with you guys...Upon arriving at a favorite wade fishing spot by truck I tucked in off the dirt road to not impede anyone from using the road. While most of the vehicles were parked high and dry, there was one truck parked on a spit of dry sand with no way out but to drive through the water to get out. I waded out in a direction I could play the wind to allow for the best lure placement within the guts, cuts, etc. I was over a hundred feet away when I heard yelling coming from the shoreline. I could barely make out the guy was yelling at me to move my truck. I yelled back that the truck was not in his way, go look. He kept yelling and I yelled back once more that the road was clear. His yelling continued so I decided I'd just ignore him and keep fishing, he'd figure it out. Then he yells "I ain't playing with you" and pops off three gun shot rounds. That got my attention. I started walking back, fishing the soft mud bottom as I went, not wanting to lose fishing time. The going was slow through the mud and I decided to instead head up towards the hard packed sand to make faster headway. When I got to within 30' of him I calmly and in a normal tone asked him if he could hear me now. He confirmed. I told him again that the way was clear and emphasized with his concerns, but shooting off rounds was a bit extreme. After a short civil discussion we parted, wishing each other a good day. Wading back off the hard pack sand and casting towards the soft mud I promptly caught a 24" redfish and a 20" trout. Nice ending to what could have otherwise been. For me, confirmation of the benefits of de-escalation.

I am glad it worked out as well. However, I would have called the police on his dumbass for sure. I am all for gun ownership and own quite a few my self but there is no excuse for that type of behavior. Idiots like that ruin it for all of us.

Just my 0.02 on this Monday morning!

What a clown. Yeah I would have called the police for sure. No need for that kind of bs on the water. If he fired out rounds just for that I'm sure he's willing to go further if you really **** him off.

Sounds like a guy that should not own firearms and pretty ballsy of you to nonchalantly walk back to an all around bad situation. Glad it turned out for you.

Yeah, call the cops if you have your phone on you. It's getting crazy out there.

So what did he do.. did he drive around you? or just leave?

I owuld not have hesitated.I would have called the police from where I was standing in the water and tell them that he was shooting at me! Do you know how fast more than one police unit would show up?! I would keep fishing until they arrived and then make my way back to him to laugh at his dumbass, THEN throw a line out and catch what you di. THAT is the way I would have done it.
Well done though for doing a good deed and maybe calming down someone unstable.
