Fishing off Trinidad last Saturday. 60-70 yds away is a river jet boat drifting.
I start fishing a rise and hook a large fish. It spits the hook after a while. Dipstick motors over to me, hits my kayak right in my rudder with his 20+ boat and says, "We aren't crowding you are we?" He deliberately hit me to get me off the spot whining about how he had been there for a F**king hour already, (which he hadn't. He passed us on the way out). I told him it was a big ocean and he didn't own any of it. But discretion and valor dictated that I did not pick a fight with a boat that could flip me in an instant. I took pictures of the so-and-so and then got his plate in the parking lot.
If you see the Mary J, a faded maroon Fish Rite jet boat out there, steer clear.
Be safe boys and girls.

Ass hat would have been staring down the barrel! Should have radioed the CG immediately. Next time one of us sees him, let him know we will be watching for him! :smt066 :smt067
Fall is dropping in for a while. Love fall colors and fishing!

It will not to down so calmly if that happens to me. Call the USCG and inform the sheriff. Make sure there is a documented history on this clown because more than one of us Trinidad regs will put up significantly more resistance and we need all the documentation we can get if it goes way way south.

I have pics of him, his boat, the CF numbers, his truck license. Talked to the Fish Cop on shore he said, "Gee, I'm sorry that happened."
USCG took information but unless it was a commercial vessel it is a local matter. Filed a report with the Sherriff. Waiting on a call back from the Marine Sherriff. Yes I will be utilizing  my CCW from now on.
I'll let you know what happens. The bastard broke my rudder.

In general, what is considered crowding another boat? How close?

I'm pretty new to boat fishing, so boat to boat etiquette is a mystery to me.

Reason i ask us that out in hmb yesterday, there were clusters of boats,  some drifting, some trolling. So how close is too close?  And since trolling seems to be pretty random anyway, how do i not get in somebody's way?

I'm sure the answer will depend on who is in the other boat!  :smt002

My 6th Grade teacher taught us that, and I quote, "The right to swing your fist, STOPS at the tip of the my nose."

I pray for YOU, and everyone, that this gets straightened out.

Can you post the pictures?  We should spread them far and wide.  Maybe someone knows him and we can get him to pay for a new rudder.

If they're pissing you off cause they're too close... probably too close. Or if you can cast a 4oz bullet and probably hit they're boat or him from afar... that's close  enough...  I hope you get that bastard. At least post  pics of the boat and B$!h A$$ owner...
