  • Right to Fish (small one-acre private lake)

    We purchased some property recently that bordered a small one-acre private lake. Our recorded title clearly states that our property goes all the way to the water's edge of the lake and that we have an easement to use the lake for our benefit and enjoyment. Yesterday, I walked down to try to fish and the owner of the lake came running over and said that I had no right to fish there. I explained to him about the easement. He called me a liar, threatened to shoot me and started yelling and using profanity. Today, he brought his gun down to the lake and start shooting into the air and then walked over onto my property and nailed No Trespassing signs onto the trees near the lake, trees that are clearly on my property. He say it does not matter what my rights are because he has pet fish in the lake and I may hurt them. What is my recourse in this situation?

    Call the police for the shooting incident and have your deed in hand; if you have the rights there is nothing he can do. A judge will punish him if need be.
