But kooks was a crossover from surfing.I like how everybody thinks that using the term "googans" is all of a sudden cool. I'll stick with kooks, I believe that was our term from the beginning.....not one stolen from the East.
Googans is fishing specific and just a fun word to say.
Kinda like gingko biloba.
If I call someone a "wicked Googan" you can gut punch me without repercussion.
Disclaimer: I first heard the term "googin" from a post sdfishkiller put up with his definition. I thought it was funny as hell and started using it. Some months later I heard it used on the show and realized that's where it came from.
