I'm going to refrain from joining that site and blasting that a-hole pretending to be a Michigan fan. Puss.

yes but disrespectful

poker runs should not ffect other boters at all

i was on the boat show run and as we ran "slow" thru the channel and mangroves we as a group almost swamped a bunch of small day boats fishing boats and canoes/kayaks...
if a large group is going to run together go offshore and away from others

you f-up my $1000 charter and yeah im gonna be mad about a bad fishing day

last years national run w/ a least 12 110mph outerlimits ran right thru a group of perch and walleye fisherman numbering about 60... poker runners ran right thru at 100+

i could go on and on about all the stupid **** ive seen at runs

sometimes im embarassed to in these runs when inconciderate **** like this happens

How about I take solace in the fact that you will never know the feeling.

Since you will be stuck in your "SeaSwirl" CC, drinkin' too much to forget how FAT your wife is, how STUPID your kids are, and how CRAPPY your job is!! Even the fish won't get in that piece of sh*t!!


Absolutely hilarious!!

That would solve alot of problems like speed limits, noise laws why dont you guys just try to be the bigger person give them a little more space and try to be the courteous one maybe then we would not be looked at as bad as we are.

They should all be thankful that we all own high performance boats. If we all sold our boats, some of them in the 100k to 600k range, and put that money back into hp fishing boats then we would have from 2 to 10 or more high performance fishing boats to f&$k with them with. And I know for sure where I live that there are several fishing boats that spank a lot of high performance boats. What is it with the 18' fishing boats with a 275 Verado???
Fishing is great, but fishermen do not own the waters. I do show respect when I see them, and try to swing wide around them, but I am not going a mile out of the way to accomodate them.
