    Thank you very much for your concern. I will take that under advisement and share your concerns with my board of directors at our annual directors' meeting. In all seriousness, though, is it OK to post with the "trade" heading in this forum? Cause I really think you're just picking fly poop out...

    Yep. Still not really picking up what you guys are putting down. I'm a single guy in my living room and garage building gaffs and looking to either sell them or trade them for tackle. They're are parts in the tackle forums daily that are people seeking trades. There are also multiple posts...

    So it was an honest mistake? If that was the case why didn't you just suck down the foam and admit you screwed up? Honest mistakes are exactly that, "honest." Once you go back and try to cover up your tracks it doesn't qualify as an honest mistake any longer. It just mashes you look like a crook.

    Then why did you change the price again after our deal fell through? You raised the price on the black steel from $90 to $100. You raised the price of the green 530 from $80 to $100. The price on the newer 530 went from "paid $160, sale $130" to now reading just "paid $150" You're doing some...

    I offered more money for another rod. I didn't change our deal for the two 530s. My offer for the 530s was still $210, which is exactly what you had as the price in your post until you changed it again. If you didn't want to make a deal on a third rod, all you needed to do was say no.

    Tips for crew on overnight boats when no tuna?

    Agreed. That's pretty unprofessional of a captain to make any remark about a tip. Freedom goes both ways. If a captain is unhappy with a charter or chartermaster, he has the option to not book them in the future. The opposite applies also. Charters can be tricky when it comes to tipping. The...

    Tips for crew on overnight boats when no tuna?

    11 out of 10 Americans agree that you are, indeed, a wanker as stated before. Your reaction just proves it. So what you're saying is that you tip based on luck and it has nothing to do with whether or not the crew hustles.
