    Always heard it’s bad luck but I’ve done it on four different boats still catch fish and haven’t sunk yet, got me thinking while lettering my buddies BlackFin today about all the different stigmas/traditions such as name changes and bananas.I know there’s some funny and some real ones out there- what are yours or some that you have heard of?

    I'm not real superstitious, but the First Cast curse is pretty real. If I'm lure fishing and I catch on the first cast, I'm likely to turn around and leave. I've wasted days of my life trying to disprove the theory.
    First cast curse is is real...

    I think the changing of boat names is only a curse if you leave something on the boat with the original name. Say, the old name was George and you had some pillows with George on it or a custom gaff with that boat name and you changed the name to Bob and didn’t take those items off the boat.

    I changed the name on 2 boats and did not follow any type of Ghosting Rules. Just remove the old name and put on a new decal.

    The bananas curse I have a great laugh and story from. One of my first trips to So Cal islands. I invite my brother and his buddies to joins us. Plan was to fish grey light till mid morning then dive and spear fish. we spent the first 4 hrs on the boat trying everything and the kitchen sink. While trolling late in the morning looking for fish I Jokenly asked who brought bananas on the boat. One of my brothers buddies jumps up and says "I did, you want one" I laugh and told him get those dam things off my boat that's why we haven't caught shit!! He grabs them and just tosses them overboard. I laughed and told him I was only kidding. Then explained the ole wise tale about bananas on boats, not 30 seconds later port side stern rod goes off. They rush to grab it thinking we're hooked up. They get the jig to the boat and attached to it was the bananas he had just tossed overboard.

    Funny part is right after that we got about 100 yards away from the bananas started hooking rat yellows and Bonita.
