tryed rudee yesterday and caught 5 short flounders and couple croakers. Alot of crabs eating the gulp up. Very slow day. I guess the boaters cant read the no wake signs. The charter boats are the worst.

 I don't so much mind "wakes" when I am fishing in an area where they are "allowed".  But in the No Wake Zones, it really chaps my ass.   It is more than a curtosy issue, it is a safety issue.

Was launching at Blackwater Trading Post.  Had the kayak 3/4 in the water at the ramp and had just about finished loading when a jet ski came screaming by in a "no Wake Zone".  I had to grab and lift the stern of the kayak and hold on tight as the wake waves splashe up over my ankles.  If I had been parking, kayak would have been washed out and possibly damaged.

Amazes me the speed at which some people will travle through congested areas where others are recreating.

From a Blog I follow:

"Seems a local group of recreational boaters and fishermen has filed a petition to lift ALL "no wake" signs from the Pungo Ferry area. That's the word from Sgt. B. K. Ricardo, who supervises the Virginia Beach Police Marine Patrol."

The ramp there is great and a good launch and provides access to a variety of good fishing holes.  But I won't go ner there on a summer weekend.

I met a VDGIF lady, Bonnie, last week and she told us a Tracker or John boat was submerged the week before by a speed boat in NWR. It guess its wake just hit the John boat just right and the boat ended under water.
Ppl really are jerks out there. A while back, 3 of us were kayaking NWR and as a boat was slowing to go by us he made the comment 'kayakers think they can go anywhere'.

Glenda.  Sounds like the boater was jealous.
