Heiny, I am that guide on the lake that rarely complains about other fishermen getting "too close" or "in my way".
My feelings are such....
No place on that lake is MINE.
Folks can fish right next to me. I appreciate it when they don't tangle my lines though.
I will even invite people to fish around me if the fish are in that area.
There are fish in the lake that have never, and will not ever, see a hook.
I follow the mantra of "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you".
Other folks don't feel that way, but I'm only responsible for me.
If I know someone, and they ask about where the fish are, I'll usually tell them. Not that it matters, because as my previous article said, we can't make the fish stay where they were yesterday and if they are there, we can't make them bite.
As a guide, all I can do is have the proper equipment, and baits, and the willingness to drive all over the lake to , hopefully, locate fish. I cannot make them bite.

I hope I didnít get in your way on a couple of your spots, that was me in the Tracker at 4.5. That was the only fish I caught for the day. I have to thank you for posting awhile back about Lakeshore Marine. Bobby got my boat running better than it ever has, and at a great price to boot.
Thanks for all the help you give us here.
