Cursed at while fishing smallies on DuPage River
Stopped by McDowell Grove Forest Preserve on the DuPage River in Naperville today with a buddy. I go there about once a week at throw out jigs and twister tails for smallies when the water is low and clear.
Caught a very nice smallie, released it and wiped my hands in the grass. A man was picknicking with a woman near us and stood up, walked toward me and said, "Have fun doing that?". I obviously said yes as I caught a 2+ pounder on an ultralight rod w/ 4lb test! He said "Yeah, you have fun hurting animals for your enjoyment". Then he proceeded to call me a "F***ing Fat A** Pu**y" many times over. He also said, "The fish will get back at you, someday you will have something metal smashed into your jaw" as he made a motion of a fist hitting his jaw. I didn't really say much, just smiled and got my twister tail back on the jig for some more fishin. They left as he continued his previous curses. I kept fishin.
Luckily there were no children around to hear his cursing. People like him probably think fisherman are 'ruining' the forest preserves. I think he has it backwards!!!!!
