Two adventurists out trolling in the harbor this morning at 16 degrees above zero. Watched them on the harbor cam for a while, didn't see any action.
Port Washington Harbor (Inside Harbor Only), Ozaukee County
Yeah that is kinda a dick move on their part. And no problem on the rant. I've been fishing port for over 20 years and some of those guys out there are just a different breed while others are just dicks. I dont go out there as often as I used to just because the crowds are higher than they used to be and the fishing is so inconsistent.
Well hope fishing picks up soon!
We were not by the wall or discharge. We were over in the marina/boat slips.
Im no stranger to the elbow elbow fishing there - heck a lot of cool guys in port and great to share stories with! This was a different breed with no regards to etiquette. As i said i would have been happy to move down had they at least spoken to me instead of the first words being "your getting a little close" by him.
In the end I was friendly - i moved (because it limited me to a 10 foot window sandwiched between crossing lines with them again and another fellow angler (not fair to move closer to the other guy).
More of a rant post. Sorry for that.
I had an episode where some others decided to join the fishing at 9:30am on a warm Saturday (me being in the same spot since 7am). Showed up and squatted right next to me. Now I dont have a problem with that but not acknowledging I was there first and to see where I was casting... crossing my line and hooking mine is pure disrespect.
I would have no problem had you asked me to change the direction of casting or asking me to move down so you could scoot in... but not saying anything nor watching what I was doing before you started even while you were setting up I warned where I was casting (just looked at me in confusion)... Local or not... dont be like this.
Justin - Really appreciate your videos! Don’t let the haters get you down.
I’m new to fishing salmon and trout in the harbor, and your videos are much appreciated. If you or someone you know if ever willing to teach a rookie, I’m looking for a mentor to show me the ropes!
MOON PHASE (10%)
I made it out a few days ago and was able to watch a good friend of mine get his first salmon this season. It is always super cool to meet the people that fish in Port you guys the coolest group ever! I hope I am able to make it out for browns soon :)
