    Liking these flashbacks...funny stuff right there. I thought this was the topper for you. We laughed so hard and had a good time with it.

    Nic - This "almost" became your most embarrassing moment......so glad I was able to use the RP bleach bucket to rinse off my hands. That was a close one and you almost pulled a "Minahan" 20170731_104118.jpg

    Tops for me has to be the time I loaded all my stuff on the boat for 3 day trip. I was all happy, sitting in the boat relaxing on the way to the bait tank, but I put my hands in my pocket and realized I forgot I left my car in line in the parking lot waiting for a parking spot. Told a deckhand at the bait tank and someone fortunately drove my keys back and moved my car into a parking spot. Lesson, double check your car when you are tired after a long drive to go fishing.

    Another time on the q105 I think, I was wahoo trolling, but it was slooooow. I was waiting in the shade up the rail a bit while watching my trolling rod. Mine goes off and I run to get it. Now the boat had a metal fish kill box in the back, and a metal cover for one of the slammers. I take a step to round the kill box, step on the wet metal cover with my inside foot and wooosh, straight down to the deck. Fortunately years of falling off a skimboard taught me to lay flat on the fall, so I only got a little skinned up. I bounce up immediately and grab my rod. I think nothing of it, but seemingly everyone comes up to me and asks if I'm alright. Fortunately, I didn't hit the kill box on the way to the deck.

    Carried two bags down the stairs on the Intrepid. Didn't realize there was one more stair after the stairwell. Fall flat again, but skin my knee. Not bad, but it never heals the entire 14 day trip.

    Reaching down another man's pants with two hands full of conviction is pretty embarrassing!

    whoaaaa this thread just went backasswards !!! I don't know how that pic came to fruition, but either a needed belt or someone was really liking the freedom of touching someone who was "busy"..............either way makes for a Kodak Moment of some sort.....my eyes, my poor eyes...........

    Fishy - oh yeah....being a chartermaster carries a lot of questionable responsibilities and embarrassments. Nic was about to bust out his version of the RP Pole Dance, but I quickly downed some liquid courage for the better of the group and inserted my hands into his sweaty ass cheeks and pulled up his drawers back up before they hit the deck. Remember I previously stated that I needed to use their bucket of bleach? Heck, I even had to borrow the boat's bible and go to church once we returned. I was fearing the worst, thinking that we all might experience this again (as pictured below - poor Jesus!) .....I had to jump in to save the day before there was a repeat performance of a different kind. Well....that's my story.

    Here's the funny part, Jesus was asking a few of us to help him out and pull up his shorts. No thank you, nope...none of us volunteered because we were all laughing and wheezing so hard from the comedy. Good times with the group.....

    Back before the Q had any renovations, there was an oval open bait tank with a 2 foot railing around it, about two feet from the stern rail. I was trolling and hooked up, backed up and ended up wedged with just feet and hands straight up with my bottom in the cold tank. Everyone got a good laugh, but I did get a 60 #'er out of it.

    Lesson learned from fishing with Doug he will record your most embarrassing imposition and keep for an opportune time to display it for all to amuse – those three photos are just the tip iceberg. Maybe I should keep my mouth shut as I am certain he has something on me in his archive.

    I've had nightmares about doing that. Driving from Vegas to the landing and forgetting my real bag.

    Many years ago I was with JJ on the Apollo at the Lupe. We had had very tough scratch fishing for small 25-35 lb tuna and an occasional yellowtail for 2 days. It's late afternoon we're on the anchor, I'm fly-lining a sardine on 30 lb string, and hook up to something that just takes off towards Mexico. After a few minutes, JJ comes up and says something like "I think you've got the one we've been looking for, Dennis." 2 hours later I'm still on this fish and its still kicking my ass...it was weird...the fish stayed up high the whole time, and wouldn't lay on its side and go into circles. JJ tells everyone that no more lines are allowed in the water until we either kill or lose this fish. Its dark by now, dinner call comes, everybody heads into the galley. When they come out, I'm still on this fish...its now been about 3 hours, and I'm just about dead. Finally, JJ sees color, sinks the gaff, and this little 30-35 lb tuna hits the deck. I had this fish snagged on the very top of its head, hence no death circles and the crazy-ass fight. Everybody on that boat laughed their asses off. One guy had his 11 year old son with him who said something like "that little fish kicked your ass for like 3 hours, dude," and walked away cracking up.

    That's my embarrassing story.
