How is describing what took place on a trip "running them down"?If you are on a trip and find yourself questioning the decisions the captain is making or made on the trip, time to go find another boat. It’s happened to me a couple of times, and although I know nobody’s perfect, there are options.
Once again, each and every boat in the fleet has its super fans. A loyal following by guys who have been fishing the boat for many trips, many years. You have something negative to say about their favorite boat, sometimes results in a bad outcome. Something from my upbringing was:
“If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”
Although I don’t fully subscribe to that, I do feel you owe it to the captain/owner to take it up with him before running them down in public.
