Based on some minor encounters me and a few others have had lately, Im posting this message as a heads up to my fellow anglers. For many of you, it has become a time honored tradition to drive down to the local ramp, dam, bridge, canal, etc, just to stop and bs with fellow anglers. I enjoy doing this too ..IN THE DAYTIME! Im sorry, but everything changes after dark. If you approach me late at night while I am shore fishing alone or returning to my truck I WILL treat you as a hostile threat before I ask any questions or answer any of yours. I dont have a CCW so this means my hunting knife will be unsheathed and held in the ready position as you approach me. Please understand that Im not trying to pick a fight or act like a stud. Its called self preservation. Once I determine you are not a threat I will sheathe my knife and apologize. Thank you for understanding.
