    Well as many of you know a few of us members are heading back to the James River next month to do some blue-cattin. I was sitting here thinking, this will be the first time in I dunno how long that I am gonna get to fish off another's boat. Possibly a couple years or more. It is nice to own a boat, and be in charge of the decisions made on the water as captain, but I am really gonna enjoy just getting to relax and fish, with having less responsibilitys. Sure there will be things to do, with bait to be caught etc. But, im excited for alittle change. Anyone else ever feel this way? I FINALLY get to be called, " Anchor B*tch!!" LOL... :Happy: rollo

    When I take people out on my boat they look at me like i'm stupid when I ask them to help with anchoring. Needless to say they don't end up coming out with me much.

    I'd rather fish my own boat as I am comfortable with the electronics to locate bait and fish, as well as the GPS. However, I don't mind fishin' with anyone as long as they have good electronics and know how to use 'em. When I am on someone else's boat, it is second nature to help with anchoring or any other boat chores to keep things running smoothly. That's just proper etiquette. Now, if you have paying customers like the guides do, I suspect that the guide is pretty much responsible for doing everything.

    I like fishing on Bill's boat too, he has good electronics and knows how to use them.

    Hopefully, I'll get back down there in a few weeks!

    I like fishing of my boat more then others because I'm in Complete control.Only place in the whole world that I'm given that kind of Power.But I would consider fishing off of another person boat on waters I'm not custom to fishing.And Yes I would be anchor boy,trailor boy,fishing from the front, getting the tail end of the bait and saying(I think we can catch more fish over there).HA ha

  13. I fish alone 90 percent of the time on my own boat. It is nice to get on another ride and enjoy it and relax and be a guest once in a while.....

    i like my own boat because im free to fish where ever i want or leave and go to a different spot whenever im ready. it is also nice to go along for a ride on someone else's boat because you can learn different ways of doing things. either way is good for me as long as im FISHING!

    Im glad you feel safe on your boat. I never feel safe on your dam boat. Don't know how many of you fellas have fished with this bastard before but don't do It!!!!!! 5 degrees fer. and hes always gotta be trying to blow the motor up. 60mph on 5 degree day??? I don't know how cold it was with a 60 mile an hour windchill but i will tell ya my nads were ready to crawl up in my but hole they were so cold. He gets a big kick out of the chit!! Its all fun and games till a brothers pecker falls off from frost bite.

    A friend of mine took my wife and I out fishing on his boat. First time I was ever on the water. I was so impressed that I just HAD to have my own boat and do as I damn well pleased on the water. Now that I know what goes into owning and operating my own boat, screw it, I'd rather fish with somebody elses boat. I enjoyed it WAY more than all the crap that goes with dealing with my own boat. The only real advantage I see to having my own boat is that I get to keep all my junk with me in one place. Don't get me wrong. I DO enjoy owning my own boat and being able to hook up and go whenever and where ever I want to. I just enjoyed the idea of "being along for the ride" much more. I guess I'm just a lazy ass at heart.
