I get so tired of hearing some sport boat patrons spew this same montra. Look dude, you did not find your own fish....the captain found it for you. While you laid in your bunk, the captain was looking for "your" fish. Or while you were eating your breakfast burrito or hamburger, the captain was finding "your" fish. You didn't find shit except your rod in the rack. Sure you probably baited your own hook and most likely set the hook, but find "your" own fish...I don't think so.I have been on 4 different sport boats this year tuna fishing, and every time I was on one ,we were poached by one or multiple private boaters who simply drove 20 knots up to the sport boat and parked either in the stern or right up swell of the chum line. People who obviously cannot find their own fish.
PB'ers who find their own fish and very skilled at what they do. Most of us don't have anywhere near the equipment the sporties do and yet many of us are quite successful. Sure there are some dumb asses out there, but that's the case with sporties as well. Stop with "us against them" mentality...it's getting old.
