...... were you ??
Like I told you , in the open bay and tidal waters where the power boat gang range , say hello to the others who are fishing if they come in close , and get used to it . Sometimes we've drifted in large tight pack a thousand feet wide , sometimes we bop around all over the bridges with 30-50 others doing the same , sometimes they (a hundred boats) troll with a 100' spread so close together that you'd swear your boards are going to tangle , and sometimes you own the place not a soul in sight .
Like I said , learn to deal with it or not , but it's all fair ground out there , just don't cross anybody's lines or run into them .
Personally because I prefer to own the place when I'm out there , I'd go out from night to dawn ... it's peacful , cool , quiet , few others and the fish are crazy nuts through the night . I personally would never have the slightest desire to paddle fish in the same waters where the power boat gang run , but , more and more paddlers are doing it now a days ... and they always cry about the power boats , my best efforts are not to run them over .
