Not sure if this is common, but it happened to me at Kasilof on Friday...
I along with about 100 of my closest friends were taking advantage of the commercial closure. Tide was going out in the AM and we were doing the trot down the beach and everyone was finding success on at least every other pass and most were had the net shake on every pass. I don't know what this guy in a boat was thinking, but apparently the dipping was too good for him not to have a piece of and boy did he catch something...ME!!! For some reason he felt it was neccesary to run 3'-4' from those of us on the beach and one of his nets tangled up with mine. I think his passenger said he was hooked on something, so what's the logical thing to do??? Why, run your motor up a few hundred RPM while it's pointed at people of course ( I think that's in a text book somewhere)...and off we went. He probably only drug me for a few feet and I never went over my head, but it felt like a mile and man was I ticked off!!!
Ignorance is bliss, eh sir???
Any other hair raising stories from the weekend? I KNOW the dipping was good
