I do not want to get in a pissing contest on a forum. I just want to point out a few things. I wanted to change my name. I am medical, thought intubait was funny. So what! Judge me. Next, the first picture is from a thread regarding stripers tail slapping prey. That happened to be the fish that tail slapped me. I actually took the picture down right after I posted it because I didn't think it was necessary a ways back. It apparently is still listed as being in the thread. Regarding the picture posted by Morning Bite, that was in a September Report thread. Look it up.
I am not bitching about fishing. It is a hobby my dad and uncle who I am very close to passed down to me. I love it, but right now I do not have time to fish as much as I used to. Full time school and full time work is really kicking my ass. Once I have a break from school I will be back at it. Also I never went after your intelligence. We both know you are a very smart guy. There is no need to go after that. I know you run a business and have kid(s) (don't remember how many sorry) and congrats on going back for your master's. That is awesome. I am in the process of getting mine also. All I said was that some guys have a lot going on and to call them report chasers is unfair to them. I admit to report chasing when I first started. That is what happens. You live and learn.
You can call me an arrogant know it all. You can call me whatever you want. I know what I am. My family knows what I am, my good friends know what I am, my patients know what I am, my coworkers, etc. I put everyone else above myself. That is what I do as someone in the medical field. I put people's welfare over my own. I may have a big personality, I may be confident, but in the words that you have said to me before "people often mistake confidence as cockiness." The truth is I DONT know everything. I quite frankly don't have a CLUE as to what I am doing when I am fishing. I go out, I throw some lures at some structure, and boom, if I hit a fish so be it. If I don't, oh well. Learning situation. Case and point the bridge that you know I hate (don't want to spot burn). Here is the deal. I just tried to add to a discussion and it got way too personal. I apologize if I offended you in any way by this post or the previous. What you think of me does not change a thing. Good luck the rest of the season.
Hopefully this clears the air.
P.S. to the guys who called me a bum, and that I cheat at golf, I do. I mean come on, everyone fluffs up when they are in the rough. And I didn't post it three times, the one you see is a rod rack I tried to sell and the other is a flying mullet that was in the light line of a bridge.
