    Not sure if it was a joke or not but I do know Paul employs questionable tactics as herding and surrounding his query. I would not put it past him to toast a catch with good champaign or even cheap champaign for that matter.:thumb:

    This year I got a good deal on Beaters to thrash the waters and send the fish right too me (and my champagne)

    There are two sides to every coin and the edge just keeps going round and round.

    I'll just photoshop the guide out of the picture that shows me and him holding my 200# Tarpon on the front of the skiff.;)

    Problem solved.

    Fishing with a guide is lame? And having a picture taken of your catch while on a guided trip is lame? Just curious where that mindset comes from.

    Never said either of those. Poor reading comprehension is lame :rofl:

    Guided fishing has it's time and place for some people.

    I said, doing a hero shot without the guide in the pic and taking full credit for the 'accomplishment' as if you did it all yourself is lame. Bragging about fish you caught while being guided is kinda lame. It is what it is. Give props to the guide.

    Im pretty lame. I kinda like most guides. It's a great way to fish effectively without knowing the area. I can see not wanting to do it. But as a guy without a boat, no knowledge of the area, and no knowledge of a species.... why not? Guides have taught me more about casting, and ecosystems, local cltures, fish behavior, and great places to eat and drink than caught me fish. And they have put me how on to a lot of fish.

    As for guides hoping into pictures. Im sure a good number of them do it for promotion. Most don't. Or at least I doubt they do. The good ones I've been with don't seem that way. But I have been around a couple of guides, and have ehard about guides, that were really nothing more than pilots of the boat that strike a pose whenever someone pullls out a camera.


    Peace all.

    Lack of reading comprehension? Most folks that do a guided trip post a report and will also give specifics about whether it was guided or not. If a guide won't let me handle my own 16" brown on the Madison even after asking for him to step out of the picture than that guide is looking for a photo op.

    Isn't it illegal to target dollies? Self professed "man handling" of a dolly? hmmm....
