Re: What would you do?
Question: "How's the fishing?"
Answer: "It sure beats yard work!"
And it does, no matter how good or bad the fishing is. I wouldn't lie to the guy, but I don't always share the whole truth, either. Like others have said, I have no problem fishing close as long as they respect my space. Too many times I've had someone proceed to cast in the exact same area I'm casting into.
