On potting down..I have been a commercial fisherman for 36 years, and I always did my own thing..The way I figure it, any guy who has to set on top of you to make a living fishing, has no confidence in his own ability..Guys like that dont belong on the ocean..They belong at McDonalds flipping hamburgers
The Capt never makes mistakes..I thought I did once, but I was wrong
When Keith did the same thing to Phil (and then to the Time Bandit, I believe) - you could see that it was not fishing by the code - it garners a bad reputation....
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~ Herm Albright
