does anyone besides me notice how mean and aggressive people are getting at the launches? i have a nice rig and launch pretty fast and these "pro-wanna-be-think-they-are's still have to open their yaps cause we are never fast enough for them. i talked to the sheriffs office and the dnr. they said this is harrassment and if the verbals start getting foul (specially in front of kids and wives) these jerks can be asked to leave the lake and/or be arrested for assault if i decide to press charges. this is cool! im so happy i checked into this. our families dont need this pressure. isnt this supposed to be about fun and quality time with people in nature. i need to find some humor in this. lets see???
i'll fight you in front of your wife and kids so i can hurry up and be the first one on the water to relax and fish with my freinds and loved ones! there thats perfect...

I fish solo most of the time, so it takes me just a little longer at the ramp. Still, I haven't gotten any of that ramp rage stuff, probably because I almost always fish during the week.

mmmm. I can be kind of slow at times. Really am careful when I put the boat in the water. Never had anyone say anything, but heve gotten "the look."

Boy, I just don't run into "ramp rage" . When I am at a ramp I try to be the first to ask others if they need a hand. when I am by myself many times I can use a hand, so I offer my hand to others. If I have a friend with me we both offer help.
At tournaments I always find the most help for everyone even for folks just going out for fun and not in the tournament. Then again I pack both a .38 and a 911 .45, so I not in the least bit worried if someone wants to act up. I have never needed to fire more than 6-8 times a week. So I ask you Ramp rage. what ramp rage?

p.s. yeah these loud mouths dont even stop to think that the guy they are pressuring to hurry might have a permit to carry. that is scarey.

I have a GOOD ramp story rather than a bad one.. last year was my FIRST year as a boat owner.. just an old 72 orange/red? lund with a 9.9 johnson. Well, the boat didn't get out the year b4 last and I didn't know the trailer's nylon rope was rotten at the knot.

Sounded like a gunshot when it broke, and I wasn't carrying any extra rope, not thinking about needing it. I still don't know who it was that helped to resecure the boat to the trailor.. but there wasn't even a hint of ramp rage 2nd week of the season last year. Now I carry an extra trailor/winch rope just in case...and it's not that nylon stuff.


As for a funny bit about ramp rage.. last week I went out to Big Lake (Cloquet) just to look around (also found a Hedon top water lure on the shore) .. plenty of ramp rage that day... but it was a mother directing it at her two kids because she couldn't back the truck up to the dock to load the boat. She was screaming and having a fit each time she turned the wheel the wrong way and hte trailer missed the concrete and went sideways on her. I didn't even bring anything to fish with that day but it made the 5 minute drive worth it just to see. (I woulda offered to help but she was already crabbier than anyone I think I've ever seen who had already been out fishing.)



Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!

It's a good idea to fish during the week in order to avoid that ramp rage nonsense.

Reminds me of the youtube video of a woman trying over and over to pull into a parking space while she held up traffic. Finally a guy walks over, yanks her out of the car and gets in and parks it for her. Pretty funny.
