After take off You are hauling __ to your spot and your partner is talking pointing at something across the lake which you can't hear jack, you just holler back HUH!!! & YEAH!!!

You get to your morning bite honey hole first thing that morning, that dinner from last night not sitting well giving you the bubble guts.

Your good hat blows off your head just after take off.

Your way up in the north are arm of a lake and realize you left that fresh honey bun & sausage and biscuit sandwich in the truck.

You unsure if you lock your doors or left the head lights on.

My partner is to scared to talk. I've went immediately back to the ramp more than once. I carry two or three caps in the boat along with extra sun glasses. Eat breakfast on the way to the lake. Most headlights these days will turn off after a few minutes.

You've ran two miles through dense fog then idled through two miles of stumps to the back of Blundell Creek and when you stop to fish you realize you forgot to put the plug in...

You got most of us beat on this one. My boats have always filled up so fast I was able to tell pretty quick.

What about when you don't set your drag and you don't realize until the first fish.

I do this every time. It a habit to back them off when finished for the day.

First is losing my contacts on the run across the lake. Than i cant see anything the rest of the day. And i hate wearing glasses that are not sunglasses. Prescription glasses are out of control.

Mine is you get to your starting spot to find your partner forgot to load his gear.

Bubble guts and missing the daylight bite is the one that used to get us. No longer. Wake up way early, drink coffee, drink some more coffee, do not leave house/hotel with any possibility of bubble guts.

Forget your water at home on a Summer tournament. I was a co-angler and partner only had enough for him. I didn't think about it until 2 minutes before blast off and no marina around. Luckily he had ice, so I drank melted ice from the cooler all day.

My first tournament as a co-angler, I left my cap in the truck and then about 10:00 I had what you call bubble guts.
Fortunately my boater was a very nice guy and gave me a spare cap and had some tickets on board while he let me out on the nearest rock to take care of business.
