    "That guy" starts yet another "That Guy", "Tipping", "Jackpot to Crew?", "Fuel Surcharge" or "Mono to Fluoro" thread. :D

    It isn't winter on the LR board unless we have a That Guy thread! LOL

    Look, the fundamental That Guy is using the boat as his own personal one and doesn't give two shits for anyone else aboard. You are all in his way, taking his spots, catching his fish etc.

    If you are going to get on a boat LR then you better be prepared to share, be patient, wait your turn, be considerate of others and deal with some measure of adversity/not having things all your way for the next multiple days...ie simply have to play nice with others something most of us learned in 2nd grade.

    You will catch your fish unless you completely suck or the fishing is just plain really, really bad. Take your time, help a newbie, share what you know when asked, don't rush the tank and avoid the corner unless a fish takes you there.

    And if a little tangle or something happens, laugh it off like you've been fishing before.

    You don't really know who "THAT GUY" is until you bring your kid on a cattle boat.... :D

    " I imagine that at some point everyone here (and who has posted in this thread) has had a "that guy" moment"
    " Short conclusion: make sure that YOU aren't doing anything to ruin anyone else's fishing. If you suspect that you are, take a step back, and stop doing it. The real and true "that guy" never stops, never considers, never wonders."

    Please pay careful attention to these comments. That's as good of advice as you'll get.

    Can't say for sure, but there's a good chance that guy has a dozen comments in half a dozen threads in a couple of forums, wanting to know if anybody has any updates on availability of the Andros 12II. ;)

    To really be that guy you have to have absolutely no clue that you are indeed being "That Guy." Everybody makes mistakes, everybody gets in a tangle once in a while...."That Guy" always thinks the other guy made the mistake....it's always the other guy that tangled him...the other guy wasted the bait...the other guy smells bad....the other guy isn't paying attention...the other guy is in your spot............"That Guy" never admits to less than perfection.

    Far as I know That Guy is an asshole who likes to get on B.D. and start talking shit about boats and crews that he knows nothing about. He never fishes, at least not since the Isle of Redondo quit, certainly doesn't have the money to fish long range, but that doesn't stop him from shootin off his big fucking mouth. He's afraid to use his real name around here for obvious reasons.

    That or those guys bring 16 cases of booze and line it up along the hallways because it won't all fit in their cabins. You can spot this guy at the landing, he usually has several dozen plastic cups and a jar of olives. He proceeds to make all the passengers waiting in line a early morning cocktail because he knows once on board he is going to stack his 3 cases of wine and margarita mix where I like to keep my boots at night to dry out.

    Depends on what brand of Gin he drinks. ;) I guess I could make room in my stateroom for a case of his wine. What can I say, I'm a team player.

    "That Guy" is the dad who takes his kid or even worse "kids" on a public boat and is too busy fishing himself to teach his kids the ropes. He is more concerned with catching his own fish while his kid is fishing on the wrong side of the boat with his line going under the boat and seemingly doesn't give a shit. That guy expects the deckhands to teach their kids to fish while they fish themselves.

    My favorite "that guy" move:
    You get into a bite of small dodos or YT, and he bounces a little 4 lber over the rail, while not realizing where the fish will land. My particular favorite is seeing a fish smack into a bunch of rods, and galley windows.
    I figure a newbie might do this once, but i have seen people repeatedly bounce fish into the rods behind them. I usually ask which rods are theirs. Just asking the question usually wisens them up. But not always.

    On one trip as I was sitting down for dinner, and the only guy sitting at the table tells me I can't sit there because the table is "reserved". Funny part was, I was the charter master and I don't remember telling my guys they had to call in and reserve a table for dinner........

    So, you're saying that just because the first of six friends who plan on dining together, asks you not to sit at their table, he's committed an offense? And, you actually witheld some giveaways because of this?
