Last night about midnight I looked out and saw a boat pulled up to a neighbors pier and a person standing on the pier. Went outside and asked him what he was doing and he said fishing. Fishing is fine but there is absolutely no reason to get on someone else’s pier! No excuse or reason for it. Has anyone else seen this before? The person argues and didn’t seem to think it was a big deal but where I come from you don’t go on someone else’s property without permission!

Call the police. No excuse. Ever.

I don’t think lake patrol is open much past 5:00 pm.
I would call the police. Or fire a warning shot; but not both...
Was your neighbor home?

Two shots and the sound of the racking of the second shotgun shell should also stick in their minds as a sound you dont want to hear again.

Pier is your property not public, post a sign on it then call sheriff dept.

I don’t think we need a sign.
If it isn’t your property, and you don’t have permission to be there, stay the effin ell off...
But... Shooting inside the city limit might be more of a problem for you than trespassing is for them...
Still, the arrogance of some people is dumbfounding...

bad enough during the daytime but at night
someone might think you stealing stuff and
wonder they didn't get shot.

I could see if someone got hung up after making a bad cast. Got off boat retrieved lure and got back on their boat and moved on. That being said, I might have only done that a couple times in over 30 years of fishing. On and off in 30 seconds tops but to fish from someone else's dock is BS.

growing up, I remember Dad living by: "shoot first and ask questions later."
If I made a bad cast, I just lost a lure. I'm not climbing onto private property at night while fishing. Good way to get shot by some ol' timer who went to the same school of thinking as Dad.

While I'm no legal expert I've always been taught in every type of firearms class I have ever been in that you should never, ever fire a "Warning Shot". You fire your weapon if you think your life is in danger and you shoot to stop the treat. Someone standing/fishing/trespassing on your pier does not represent a threat to your life. Yes, they are trespassing but you're going to have to articulate why you think your life was in danger.
These guys explain it a little better than I can. And no, I'm not a member of US and Texas Law Shield.

I'm with you on that one...but there are a lot of ol' school people overprotective of their piers...
That $10 lure is not worth my hassle having the confrontation with the property owner.

During daylight hours, I have no issue. After dark is a different story.
