This is directed to the light blue green waterman or whipray that decided to burn the shoreline I was poling today. I was out on my little green project boat poling the Lee shoreline of plantation island as you ran from the West shore across the bay to burn that entire NE and E shoreline. From a fellow HB owner I would like to tell you your a complete piece of shit. Just wanted to make sure you knew in case you didn't see both of my middle fingers. What an asshole....
Just had to get that off my chest. If my phone wasn't in my cooler I would have a picture to post. Hope you find a crab trap along the way.

Did they have the classic Flat Brimmed hat, a $2000 push pole, 5 extra sage fly rods and a 3 ton lifted diesel truck waiting to rush them away at the ramp so they could get home to daddy quickly?

Probably, there was a lifted truck with whipray trailer back at the launch. It's moments like this I wish I had a 50 cal mounted to the front deck of my boat. Shorelines are for poling not running. If you're reading this you ran over a s*** ton of fish by the way.

Just speculating but probably ignorance and lack of experience operating a motorized boat. Not that it's any better but I can let the ignorance go easier or turn it into a teachable moment. When they stare at you as they burn the shoreline you are poling in an expensive skiff you know it's intentional.

Just makes me wonder how hard it is to act like a decent person out there. Apparently it's a lot more difficult that I thought.

Certainly could be, but I suspect not as they never seem inclined to stop but rather just wave and keep on moving....and I’m talking about passing within 100ft lol

Seems like its worse and worse every time I go. If they don't obey federal pole and troll they certainly do not give way when someone is poling a shoreline. Plenty of places to run around out there, no reason to run shorelines nor shallow bays like that. Just adding to the extra 10,000 props scars out there.
