Guide Fishing Etiquette

I am not trying to call guides out, I am just curious who has been cut off, almost been run into by their boat, potlicked or yelled at by a guide on the Galveston bay System?

Guides think they own the water. Plain and simple

I always try to be respectful because I know they are trying to earn a living.... But I am willing to choke a guide out if he doesnt play by the same rules.

My thoughts

A soft answer turns away wrath.

I fish to have fun and relax i am not gonna let a person ruin my day because he drove his boat thru my drift or wade or thew his stupid anchor 10 feet from me it always makes my day worse if i get mad about it not his. Thats just the way it is and maybe he was raised wrong or didnt grow up with a dad that taught him the rules of good etiquette. Let the other guy be miserable i am gonna have fun teach my kids the right way and enjoy God's great creation.

Good for you sir, we need more mature level headed people like you.

I fish the mid coast, we have some great guides and we have some punks. I've had a few instances through the years. One thing I do though is avoid the tournament crowd when they are around, a lot of those guys just don't care.

There are a lot of people that just don't know any better. I was fishing in knee deep water this past weekend and a boat ran close enough to me for me to cast to him. He waved real friendly and kept on going. All I could do was shake my head. If you can see the color of my sunglasses you are to close!!!
Airboats seem to be the worst about running you over. I can understand if it is rough and they don't want to go into deep water to get around you. If it is calm though, get out in the deep stuff.

I try to stay several hundred yards away from anyone if possible if at all possible. Th thing is there are just so many people out there now sometimes you just don't have a choice.

Guides or not. There are so many new people on the water these days that they don't realize that they are doing anything wrong. I have a buddy that when on his boat he gets mad when he gets cut off or people run to close but he does the same thing and doesn't realize it. I bring it to his attention so he learns but doesn't seem to help
