I have found that the best way to deal with them is to just ignore them. It is a public lake and I have just as much right to be on it as them (I figure more so since I own property on the lake and they are mostly drop in for the day types). I just act like they don't exist and if I don't see "the bird" it doesn't bug me and it probably disappoints them that they are not getting a reaction to their rude, redneck behavior.
So it's just a matter of educating the fishermen who actually owns the lake.

The lake I spend most of my time is almost entirely used by fishman. I have little problems with them most of the time, but the starts for the tournaments are extremely dangerous. They line up the entire field and then drop a flag. When the flag drops - all of them fly most of the way up the lake at wide open throttle sometimes 2-3 wide with no care for anyone else. It is almost like they think the D@Mn fish are going to run away if they are not the first one to get there...

Clearly the bass-holes in their glitter-rockets are the worst.

It's been many moons since I was aboard one of those Bass boats.
Next, we're doing MachII across the lake and I have no idea why - Still don't.
Apparently, there's only one 3' diameter spot the fish live - similar to some in traffic, Nascar to the only stop sign.

It is a Pavlovian response to ballast tanks and rap music blasting from tower speakers. Even the land owners on our lake are starting to react this way as well.

Sometimes the reaction is justified, sometimes not.....

There are idiots in all types of boats.

Fu*k rude people!!!!!! we go to the same lake about 99% of the time, so we try and be as respectful as possible, and are always out to have a good time and a fun day..... 19 public parking spots and a single ramp launch are a minor inconvienence that you deal with when you get to spend the whole day on a pristine lake with min. traffic.... the ONLY people who we have EVER had issues with are several of the fishermen, NOT all of them have been rude to us, but ALL of the people who have been rude were fishermen.... not sure why??? if you are like 300 feet away from them they throw their hands up in the air like ***? exchanged words with them on the water several times, at the launch.... just seems to be stupid people who are the issue.... full ballast double up rollers are an appropriate thing to send their way at times and we never are on the lake early in the A.M. we love the warmth of the sun and beautiful sunsets

By all rights - land owners have the right to shoot back hearing cRap.

Nobody likes a Jackars. Unfortunately it works both ways and yes, rude obnoxious people stay home.
We have a lakehouse in northern Wisc and I as a water enthusiast I hate the ordinance of 10-6 that's no water fun before 10am and after 6pm the water is for fisherman only

How can you live with that? I am almost never on the water between those hours unless I'm on someone elses boat.
