had a lucky break at work, finished up my loose ends early so I took off to try to catch a smallmouth this afternoon. I have to ask one question, why, if the river is almost is 200 feet wide do they have to paddle right next to someone fishing? I know that it is public domain, but where is the courtesy and common sense? I figure that the smallmouths in the french broad is used to the armada of rafters and kayakers, so they probably aren't spooked by a large floating object, but does that mean you have to brush by within feet of where i am wading and ask me if I am catching anything.

You think they are bad on a lakes and rivers, you should see them in the Ocean inlet channels - Small inlet, lots of water pushing through, lots of boat traffice - little room to manuver - now throw in a jet ski running circles around the boaters and cloggin up the works......there outta be a law!
