    The last few years of the Q105 the owner lowered the prices on their spring 7-day trips. We had one person in his early 20's stealing stuff from tackle boxes and talking beer with out marking the board. Then if he found an open box of cigarettes he help himself. Near the end of the trip people were locking their stateroom as prescription drugs went missing. The last night when we were paying our beer tab and tip the kids gave the skipper a $20 tip for a $1500.00 trip. o_O Skipper Joe gave the $20 back to him and said thanks but no thanks.

    At the landing Joe told the kid he was not welcome to come back and he was going to share his name with the other boats.

    OK, am remembering one such instance reported in 'La Tuna' canyon: not only fitting, but oh so ironic.

    Maybe same instance as it was in that famous Malibu area cravasse prolly 30 or more years ago by now - reported as getting the guy via the tags too. You've a good memory Sir!

    So stuff was going missing, people knew who the perpetrator was, and nobody did anything?

    I'm not a tough guy or anything, but I probably would've been the one getting kicked off the boat after I socked the dude in the mouth. I f***ing hate thieves.

    Nothing puts a wet blanket over a trip more than having a thief on board and stuff shows up missing....

    I completely understand your feeling, Dustin. But the reality of life is that there is a 5% Flake Factor in humans, all humans. Out of any group of twenty people, one will always be open to taking advantage of an opportunity to get something for nothing. I learned a long time ago to always lock the tackle box, and to not leave a productive lure on a rod in the rack.

    At first most people thought they had just misplaced or forgot the bag of hooks or a crew member bummed a smoke in a hot bite. The missing meds came up late in the trip and nobody saw the kid in any rooms. When we were sorting fish at the landing someone mentioned missing hooks. Then someone mentioned missing jigs and cigarettes. I think the crew keep quiet on the meds hoping to catch the person in the act. The kid was told not to come back because of the beer and bad tip. The total picture of what happened came to light back at the landing.

    This was the last few years of the Q105 and some of the crew were not being paid after coming back from trips. The boat was falling apart and the crew/skipper were fighting between themselves. So unless we were catching fish we never saw any crew members to tell about missing stuff.

    I have seen this almost happen on a trip. A very nice couple whom I have fished this trip several times is always a pleasure to fish with were enjoying the start of this trip as usuall. They both fish well and she is easy on the eyes and full of personality and fun to be around. A new guy whom fished well as he had boated a few fish ahead of everyone else was on a third fish and totally bowled her over and shouted “out of my way bitch”. Needless to say he only made it a lil further down the rail and was body checked and several people joined on the beat down. Looked like a gang initiation. Somehow his rod also became a two piece. Knowing the captain well he gathered the facts and had a sit down with the guy whom now looked like a truck had its way with him. He was told not to fish for the balance of the trip and never return to the boat. Did not see him for the balance of the trip. We all signed a statement about that guys horrible fall we observed. This happened many years ago. When you see a experienced angler on a hot large fish it shows a a cool forward looking person courteous to those on the rail. Everyone will help you catch a fish given the opportunity.

    I was on a 6 day last year and my roommate was a raging alcoholic. He got on the boat with 2 large bottles of Capt. Morgans Rum and they were both gone by the fourth day. That night about 2 am I hear a loud thump as he falls out of the top bunk and hits the floor. He then gets up but can't find the door knob so he just pees on the wall and all over the floor. He sprained his ankle in the fall and he is too drunk to climb back in his bunk so he just passes out on the wet floor. He is moaning and groaning but nothing life threatening. I got up and told the crew what was going on and spent the rest of the morning trying to sleep in the galley. The jerk spent half of the next day in the galley with his foot in a 5 gallon bucket of ice water. I'm pretty sure that he won't be back on that particular boat again.

    I’ve “kicked myself off” certain trips as some regulars that frequent certain trips are people that are so repulsive that I just can’t be in a confined area with them for a day longer. There are certain people I ask the office if they’re on the trip that, if so, I’ll pass on the trip and seek an alternative.
    It’s amazing how small a boat gets after 15 days of being on the water with the wrong person/people. Even a ripper bite sometimes doesn’t make up for a king sized donkey.

    what I normally do is watch how people, they board the boat
    and move around when they first get on
    if they act like they Own the Boat
    I just avoid them, the Whole Time
    not to let those RUIN my trip
    because I do so Few Of Them
    I want to Have The Time of my Life
    when I'm on one
    I let the Crew Handle The Adult Day Care ,Crap.

    What I was trying to say was you have to watch your surroundings even long range fishing. Years ago a passenger was caught pilfering staterooms, everyone knows no one keeps a wallet on them while fishing. To this day I pay my tab, and tip with a check, keeping my cash low on board.

    Another year I came home missing a brand new never used Accurate ATD 30 gone out of my reel bag. Lesson learned, after break down at the end of a trip I count my reels, reel case locked and secured in my stateroom...

    Yeah, that's usually what I do. I've seen guys come on late and then start moving people's tackle box/bag out of the way to make room for theirs. Not cool. If they don't have manners enough to not do that, then they'll pretty much do anything.
