I like THAT GIRL way more than THAT GUY.
I saw "that guy" on a 5-day trip -- he complained to the captain that we were catching too many albies, so we left a hot bite and never had a chance to get in to the bluefin. He sealed his fate with the crew when he whipped out his bait knife and started to cut sardines on the rail. He was "that guy".
Long range boat on a tuna trip with a dozen or so guys on the stern of the anchored boat, fly lining sardines. The boat is swinging on the hook but everybody is doing it right, over,under, keeping their lines in front of them. "That Guy" is the tool that steps into the middle of the stern, pitches out a mackerel and stands there for 45 seconds, stripping spectra from his reel into loose coils on the water. When the inevitable happens and the clown wraps up half the boat into a gigantic spectra cluster fuck, he wonders why everybody is all pissed off.
I was on a 15 day in November and there was a lighter that was sitting on the rack...it was "light blue". That guy came out of the salon asking where his lighter went. There were 6 or so of us using it from time to time, but it usually made it back on the rack. Well...this time it didn't. He proceeded to rant about how someone stole his lighter and he needed it...yada yada yada. It just happened to be my kite rotation and I am leaning on the rail and he came up to me to blame me for stealing his lighter. I told him I have a lighter and he can have it...I took it out and tried to give it to him and he said "THAT ISN'T LIGHT BLUE!" and steamed off back into the salon. Needless to say the entire boat began to laugh...my buddy actually had it in his pocket. He didn't steal it he just forgot and put it in his pocket. The captain told my buddy to shove it up "that guys" ass. HAAAA!!! He was also the one loved to peeeeeel line off his reel when we were all fishing and you know how that ends up. Anyhow...that is one "that guy" story.
Just pay attention, have a good attitude and have fun...you probably will NOT be that guy.
TG moves his tackle box in front of yours, when asked why, he states 'so'
TG hasn't caught a big tuna, so he tells everyone what a lousy boat, lousy crew, lousy food, lousy fishing etc.
TG catches a wahoo on the kite and wants to go again because he didn't catch a tuna
TG flies off the handle and wants to deck the cook because he is vaccuming the galley after breakfast and he is watching tv
TG jumps in front on you at the bait tank
TG chases all the bait around in the tank damaging all the bait instead of waiting for one to swim into his hand
TG doesn't flush the toilet and leaves the heads a mess
TG casts over your head and hits you in the head with his reel stating other tuna are following mine
TG is in every tangle on the boat
TG drops in line into the middle of anglers instead of starting at the end of the row
TG leaves his rod in the trash can
TG is always drunk
TG in the middle of the night is on the back deck hollering 'help' and then when the crew runs to aid, he wants a light as he left his lighter in the room
TG = ASS
Lol, I actually had a seasoned deck hand nearly hit me in the head with a yoyo jig. He apologized though, and I knew it was an accident so I didn't get mad or anything. Just glad it didn't actually hit me.that guy will cast out without looking back and almost hooking you.
that guy will cut in on the rotation
