    Default stamping on a bait boat

    where I go to find my sweet retreat from life ,is a beautiful pond set next to a stream and fields ,ducks of several types ,
    the occasional kingfisher ,tree creepers ,big fat friendly labaradors wandering around sniffing out your bait ,dragonflys dancing in a courtship ,chickens clucking in the adjacent property ,bats swooping in the evening shy ,

    NOW SOME DAM WANNABE MATT HAYES WITH HIS BAIT BOAT ,ok I get it if hes fishing 300 yrds out at a res the pond is small enough to use a catapult if your fishing on the far bank or even chuck them if the bait is heavy ,chugg chugg chugg all effing 4 hrs I was there drove me up the wall ,where did all the piece and tranquillity go ,I say MATT HAYES WANNA BE IM GOING TO JUMP UP AND DOWN ON IT IF YOU BRING IT AGAIN

    Here lies the reason for long lists of rules. Fishery owners write rules to try to appease and stop infights between anglers on the back of a method another anglers doesn't like. Floating pole, slapping, etc etc.

    Personally I think fishermen could do with showing a little tolerance. We need to be aware of the fact that fishing is not a profession, or requires any training nevermind regulated training.

    Block the boat out your mind and enjoy yourself, by letting the boat upset you, it's only bothering you. Jump up and down on his boat and you might find the issue escalates pretty quickly too boot


    P. S I know the jumping was not literally meant btw
    The world is full of kings and queens who blind your eyes and steal your dreams!

    Don’t let the things worry you, as previous stated block it from your mind. I wouldn’t let a piece of plastic enjoy my pastime.

    I agree with your post carpinbob,trouble is it isn't the big of plastic that irks,it's the phallus using it,so moronic to think to use his floating drone on a pond,I heard yesterday from a friend that a carp angler was casting around 120yds to the far bank reeds,no problem you'd think,but there are swims all along that bank(every 20yds or so),so why risk having another angler,possibly with three rods and a huge bucket of bait,fishing for carp/catfish killing it for you,surely you think first before using a bait boat,or even cast a line,obviously not.

    I wouldn't be good at "blocking it out of your mind", either. If you're the kind of angler who takes care not to impose your presence on others on the bank, it's hard to ignore those that do. It's a bit like being at the cinema - little things like people unwrapping sweets and rustling crisps can be a pita.

    I stopped going to one of my favourite lakes a few months ago; I just couldn't seem to get away from the type of angler who stands up to cast in, casts into your swim, has a radio on their side-tray, sits one side of you then talks across you to their mate on the other side, uses a loud bite alarm for methods that don't need it............ A bait boat on a pond would spoil my day, too.

    Please to say that my clubs have a ban on all bait boats and drones also restrictions on how much bait you can spod.
    Never have understood why people always want to fish as far as they can cast. I have seen anglers on opposite banks my lake casting as far as they can and end up fish next to each other. Also been moaned at for fishing some ones swim when they are a 100 yards away.

    I really thought this thread was Stamping on a Bait Boat by BonJovi

    Jonny used to fish by a dock
    You know he missed his strike
    He's down on his luck
    It's Chub, those Chub

    Gina got a liner today
    Working for her man
    She casts out again
    For Chub, those chub

    She says we gotta hold on to what we got
    It doesn't make a difference if we lose it or not
    We'll get another, for that's a lot of chub
    Lets give it a trot

    Whoah were half way there
    Whoah oh rod tip in the air
    Taking line but we'll land it I swear
    Whoah oh get it in there!

    Let me start by saying that I own a bait boat, a Viper Mk3, but only ever use it on venues where it is necessary (for physical or practcal reasons) and would never dream of using it on a pond or small lake.

    In use it is pretty quiet and once it is more than 30m away you cannot hear it at all . . . . .

    To my mind a bait boat is simply just another piece of kit that enhnaces one's chances of catching, and technically it is no different to a bite alarm or indeed an expensive big pit reel.

    That some people use them injudiciously is both obvious, and annoying, but in fact is a bait boat more or less troublesome that some noddy thrashing the water to a foam with a giant spod, and usually spreading his bait all over the place rather than concentrating it where it will do the most good?

    When I was contemplating buying one I took a long time reviewing what was on the market and what features I wanted, and which ones I didnt.

    For examle, I wanted one with an integral echo sounder as it can give a very good idea of the depths and the bottom contours without all the fuss and disturbance of casting around a marker rod.

    I decded however against buying a model that had GPS as I thought that was a step too far, and in any event on those misty early mornings I would far rather just sit back and enjoy the morning rather than be so eager to start fishing.

    In the final analysis, angling is such a wide church that there is surely room enough for all of us from the traditional angler to the user of advanced technology, on the proviso it is used intelligently . . . . .

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    Quite a few have been turned into wine bars, and many into private homes ..... but there are still some things you shouldn't do in a church.
