I have yet to be unable to evict the usurper from my spot but find it distasteful to have to tell someone that it's time to move out. I try to go so far into the rivers that I have a relative expectation of privacy.
that's when I tie on a big, menacing popper on a 4/0 hook and let a casts "get away" from me. Works like a charm
