Pet peeve Number 1 is Impatient jerks at the boat ramp who stomp around huffing and puffing while folks in front of them are launching.
Pet peeve Number 2 is People who Sit on ramp and then take 15 minutes to load everything from their car into their boat and get ready to launch. Pull off to the side to get ready And get in line when your ready to launch.
Pet peeve number 3 is people who sit on the courtousy dock or ramp fishing and refuse to move and want to fight when someone needs to use it to launch or retrieve their boat.
Jet Ski, with an idiot on it. We fish the spring Bream beds on Barkley and Kentucky lake. The Beds are almost always in the back of a cove. With literally miles and miles of lake to run their toy, they always have to come into the cove and see how much water they can stir up.
My biggest one is when people are hanging around boat ramps swimming and what not. There will be kids, dogs, meth heads, you name it everywhere and not one single boat in sight. They act like you are the inconvenience not them. And then get mad at you when you run over the flip flops and other stuff they left on the ramp. This is typical on the backwater landings during the summer.
If you ever get board during the summer, head up to lake blue ridge and watch all the inexperienced boaters clogging up the one lane ramp at Lakewood landing. Last summer I watched a guy drag the skeg on his inboard/outboard half way up the ramp. When he finally heard us yelling at him he stopped and tried to back up. His daughters boyfriend didn't know how to trim the Lower unit up. Good times. Wish I could have recorded all the stupidity I've witnessed there.
Exactly the reason for my peeve. There's a guy I see here a lot that gets me hacked off just about every time we cross paths. When it's him and me and wide open lake, I shouldn't be the one that has to paddle away at 2 miles an hour. I darn sure shouldn't be able to ask him if he's setting up to surf with my "inside voice".
Dude bro has a whole herd of horse powers in that stupid wake boat, drive the thing one creek arm over and leave me be!
Guys who drop their wife or girlfriend off on the dock so they can jackknife the trailer 50 times trying to back it in while the guy watches from the boat. Teach your woman how to do it when the ramp isn't busy!
