It's true. At first I was surprised when Tangler stuck the barrel of his .357 into the soft tissue underneath my lower jaw, demanding we let him into our ranch property to fish it. Then I realized it was just his way of asking respectfully, and naturally we gave him permission. (The only thing I regret is that now I have a double-chin b/c of the skin he stretch out.)

Re: Gaining Private Property Permission

if you go in at a decent speed and don't make a jerk of your self then most people will listen to you. i have gone to talk to people and have had them "mark" me and ask can i help you. the best thing to do is ask if you can get out first and if they say yes keep your hands open and talk to them civilly and don't just jump into asking about fishing their ponds. like it was said eariler tell them that you use to shoot on the property and then ask if it would be ok to fish now. but the best thing you can do is if they happen to stop by to see how yu are doing make sure that you have not taken all the trophy fish out. might just want to take one if that is ok some want C&R only. I have 3 lakes that are C&R only that my son and i fish.

You guys keep saying face-to-face, but I really dont think its a good idea. He isnt a older man, hes about 40, AND he has about 5 other people living on the property. I am not sure if they are family, or who they all might be. I have no idea how to get to his house, there are multiple roads back there. I just would rather not get shot, or charged with any crime.

Re: Gaining Private Property Permission

if the gate is unlocked and no signs saying do not enter, i would go in and talk face to face. he already gave you permission to be on his land, a few years ago. you can drop in to say hello and see how he is giting on, offer to give a hand on his place. most older guys welcome people from the past. the worst he can do is say no. a letter wont do it but face to face might if he remembers you

Cam, Two miles up the road passed the gate? Face to face is always top notch, Two miles of trespass is questionable, what if the guy start shooting?
just IMO no offense in intend as I totally agree with you, If not for the gate and raod

Re: Gaining Private Property Permission

I've been known to be pretty aggressive in my seeking permission for private property fishing. Face to face is the way if possible. I just roll up and knock on the door. Bringing up that you're the kid with the BB gun is your "in", work it.

The worst that can happen is they say no.

Matter of fact, I'm fishing some new private property this weekend

you could stock him Ha Ha -- a hand written letter goes a long way these days with the old timers, It in itself shows respect

I would love to but the problem is lives about 2 miles down a road, that is on his property.
