Just in case someone thinks bass pros don't earn their money look through these photos from this morning on Lake St. Clair: [www.bassmaster.com]

That's just an easy day on the ocean, or a prelude to running rapids in a drift boat, or jet sled.

If we get a strong wind out of the south on the Chesapeake bay it looks like that.

Oh come on Lynn ..... standing and fishing on a boat's deck that is basically even with the top of the boat's gunwales while it is pitching and rolling up and down 2' or more, is an easy day/ LOL

All I can say is no thank you!!! Some of those picture were more than nuts.

Yea, I guess it is a tough stint out there for 8 hrs without a head on the boat.

That's My Backyard Right Their!! The photos that open on your link, Are of the {Delta} @ the North end of the lake, The wooded shoreline is actually one of the many islands in the Delta. That is about the calmest area to fish in these winds. I'm Glad the BassHoles had a Sh***y week-end !!!!!!!! Serves them Right!! Locals here Don't Want Them Here At All. These so called Pro's have {Zero Respect} for Any Local Anglers, They will indeed move right in on you, If you and a buddy are casting a weed bed, And could care-less about pushing you out and off of it. They Really Think they Own the Lake!! They swamped a fellow and his 10 yro son 2 years ago, They were Buzzed within feet!! Yep that Close by 2 Tournament Bassholes during the Tournament, One port-side, one starboard side, At the same Time!! They came up from Behind them!!!!! The Bassholes clearly new what was done. And were Totally in the Wrong!!! But they never even turned back to look, To see that 2 people were in the Water!! INEXCUSABLE!!! The 2 fortunately were wearing their life Jackets and were Fortunately were rescued by a Sail-boater. The Bummer was The sailboat could not Give a Positive ID to the Sheriff on the 2 Bassholes because of the speed they were running at, And the fact they all look the same. It's a Sad Day in Sports when a fish weigh in! Is more Important then a Human Life.

Man , i could never get excited about bass fishing for some reason although i did plenty of it in my early years because that's what was inhabiting the locations i fished . Image # 36 is funny , i know it would drive me nuts having people following me around taking pics where ever you go so maybe that's why some of them have a habit of barging up on recreational fisherman without showing any courtesy i don't know but still not a good thing to do.

If i was a recreational fisherman minding my own business out there and i spotted Bassholes cruising up on me and getting in my space i certainly would not remain quite about it . I'm usually very docile and stay to myself but that kind of stuff is one thing that will push me over the edge.

Done that before.
Fished NC State championship 2015 during Hurricane Joaquin.
Half the field quit and went home after first day. The rest of us toughed it out.

I didn't say they were smart or polite! My comment was in regard to the conditions. Then again If I lived on a lake, I wouldn't want them around either!
