went out on a 3/4 day trip on mon. we had about 16 anglers on the boat so it wasn't crowded. when we were heading out i noticed this japanese guy with five rods bungeed to the stern rail. i thought "what the fuck, this guy thinks he is going to hijack the whole stern." :104167739 i asked one of the regulars on the boat if the captain and crew would put up with that kind of horseshit and he said, "no." ok, left it alone. when we got to the island this same guy pulls out a bag of raw shrimp, baits up and proceeds to crowd anyone out around his spot. the excess rods were gone now exept for one right next to him. i said, "fuck it", so i fished right next to him and his rod left on the rail. despite hooking up some fish, i was getting tired of seeing this rod bungeed to the rail with nobody fishing it. i finally told him, "this rod is either going in the rack or in the water. i took the rod and put it in the rack, not wanting to just throw his custom seeker 196-8 in the water because of his stupidity. he started getting pissed but didn't say anything to me. he either didn't speak english, or he wanted to play stupid. i think he didn't speak english because i never heard him speak english the whole trip. as we were fishing, he was keeping every god damn fish he caught. he was putting 6" calicos in his sack. the crew caught onto this and when he tried to put another monster 6" cali' in his bag the captain said, "hey, you need to measure that fish!" the captain knew it was short but tried to give the guy an out. this idiot had the nerve to yell at the captain in japanese. the deckhand started in on this idiot and said, "we have rules in america!" i wish that guy knew what the deckhand said to him because it was priceless. we didn't see this guy fishing the rest of the trip so i guess he was pretty pissed. enough about this assfuck. the fishing was good for the time of year it is. the cali's were boiling on chum as well as some cudas and bonita. i actually got a jig strike(cuda) on a mint green tady 45. i farmed it a few seconds later but it was hooked up. the crew couldn't believe that i was fishing the iron this early in the season. i just told them that i was just practicing for the up coming season. they were pretty stokes when i hooked up though. lots of calicos, all you wanted blue perch, and a few sheephead. great day on the water. oh, yeah. one last thing about that assfuck. when we were heading in i notice that his rod that i put back on the rack had ALL the guide inserts busted out by someone(not me) when nobody was watching!! fucking priceless.
