    Default Advice on the right way to do things.

    All I am new to West Bay and want to understand the right way to do things. I was drifting then we got on some fish. So I decided to anchor and take advantage as we found the fish. Another boat drifted through and was easily with 60 yo 75 yards drifting towards us. So I pick up and moved. As we departed I was not concerned about my wake (maybe I am wrong for departing like i did) but I was extremely frustrated. My question is should I continue to drift or is it OK to anchor (power pole) when you find fish? The thing is the guy did not look like a knucklehead. Of coarse they were facing the other way and would hardly turn around and look at us.

    I drift a lot to find 'em and I will anchor and get out and walk up on 'em. I would stay and give 'em the stink eye

    Naw, screw the potlicker. I try not to mess with idjits, but sometimes they need a lesson (which they never understand because most are just doombazzes anyway).

    The way I understand proper fishing etiquette that's your school you just found and they shouldn't crowd ya. Some say 500 yard bubble. I say stay about 200 yards from me andI won't mind.

    As long as they're drifting, and not drifting into your casting area (anchored), then I'd say let 'em drift. What I don't understand is firing up and blasting out of there if you were catching fish.

    If it's a reef that is being drifted by other boaters you don't anchor up.You go back around and drift again.

    Yeah , if you're following another boats drift into fish and they are motoring back for another drift over the same water , you don't power pole down . If you are the first to find fish , you can anchor up or come back for another drift .
