So, I take my kids to Hope. I guess in my little mind its kind of a low stress kids or newcomers fishery. Or just low stress for guys like me too. Well, no kidding I am hooking these pinks and letting my kids reel them in along with families to my left and right and some fatbody turd 3 some cuts in the middle of the family next to us doing the same thing with a couple of say 10yr old kids. I couldn't believe it! They basically get muscled out by the drunk turds (in $300 waders, $100 glasses...the whole Professional pink fisher getup..funny in itself) who are joking about their accomplishment. (my blood is just boiling now).
It wasn't five minutes and one of them was waiting right behind my boy and me. I turn and walk back to get another weight and boom he's in. I calmly (which was a feat) told him that would be the poorest decision he would make that day. He moved a long ways away but I wish I didn't have the boy. I'd just have beat on him.
Wooooooh I got that out.
I say all that to ask if its the worst idea ever to just go down there in a group of about 8 and make sure families like I witnessed don't get bullied out. I feel pretty bad (its burning in my gut) I didn't take up for the other family but I kinda saw the outcome. A 3 on 1 brawl and my boy witnessing that. (not gonna happen)
I don't think of hope as a place to take the kids anymore, and I hate that. I don't go fishing to fight but man they needed beat. I quit fishing the russian because that's the way it ended up it seemed. I am all about low stress fishing. I think that's the idea. However, I'm trying to find an answer to this. Or do we just lose another fishery to A-HOLES?! This is the second time this year I've seen grown men bully kids for pinks at Hope. Where can I take my kids fishing for salmon, now?
