You know, its funny how you posted this thread. Me and GS exchange X-Mas gifts every year. Sometimes it's a great gift, and other times it's a funny gift. I forgot all about me posting that I was thinking about a candy apple red 665 2-speed. I did show a picture a while back of a candy apple rod belt pad I had purchased.
Yesterday evening, the door bell rang and it was GS's wife. She handed my wife a couple of gifts. She wanted me to wait until X-Mas day to open up his gift. I told her that I need to find out if it was a "Real" or "Gag" gift.
Well, inside my package was 12 pair of briefs that he had dyed bright red. The card said something like "Wear these with your ****** red fishing belt".
I know one thing for sure. I will never take that red anodized aluminum fishing belt when fishing with GS. It would one comment after another all day long.
Now, I have to come up with a great gag gift for him. I was planning on giving him one of my new custom OTI 7'6" 2-pc rods made by Txseadog.
If someone boards your boat with one of those candy colored reels, don't ever bend over. Make sure you pee off the corner of the transom where he can't get a peek of your unit.
The best advice is to abstain from letting them board. It's best to destroy the funny colored reel in front of them at the dock.
Offshore fishing is not a place to meet or find out the person has come out of the closet. You're pretty much stuck with them until you get back to the dock. It's against the law to kill someone and dump them overboard.
