People,
I was just wondering what reason(s) people have for chooseing their particular user name for this board. I bet there are a couple of interesting stories here.
As for mine, Soapfish, was chosen because the old-timers in Florida use to call the, then not so popular, Snook a soapfish due to the fact that if you did not skin it before cooking it the taste resembeld soap. Soooo, I grew up in S. Florida and caught a lot of them and I wanted to identify with a past era of my life. There, nothing thrilling, someone has to have a more interesting reason.

Good question

You know, I always thought about this myself. We'll ever since I was a kid, my favorite lunch was TunaFish sandwich and I usually would have that 4 out of 5 days of the week. That's still my favorite to this day and my taste bud still have not changed.

Though now my hair is shorter, in my "youth" playing lacrosse I had some hair, which came out of the helmet quite a bit, and when the helmet came off, the hair was everywhere. Also use to walk around with about three days growth on my face, and thanks to Scooby Doo, nickname went front short sh** to shaggy, and has stuck now for who knows how long.

Nothing real interesting here, and no reference to fish or fishin', but that's it.

As a youth I used to fish in a nearby river very frequently. So my friends started calling me finn. That was in the year 1974 so I put them both together and came up with Finn74.

Long time ago my dad took me out in the ocean fishing with a couple of his friends as he puts it:a guys day out. We started to fish for what ever would take our bait and it seems like the whole day I was catching TRIGGERFISH some small and some that were very large(5#) or better,so anytime we go out together he tells his friends this is TRIGGER (boring):--->

Since I was a kid if water was to be found I was in it. I grew up in Pa and my parents were not fans of water. "Neither is anyone else in my family. Soon as I got some freedom I was jumping of cliffs or out of trees at the old strip mines. When I was 15 I made my first trip to Niagra Falls. One day I want to go over in a barrell and have spend way to much time studying the way to do it. "Canadian side 30-40 feet out in sealed tube with extra O2"
At 17 I made my first trip to the ocean and life has not been the same since. Now as an older child I have three boats.( 1-16'jet, 1-21' cuddy, 1-30" gas powered remote) plus I think I am buying a Kayak this week-end. In college I worked summers teaching wind suring and sailing, and has taken about every water relater course offered by the YMCA and The Red Cross. I live a a place called Lake of the Woods and have a three year old with the midle name Buxton. So the H2O hunter seemed to fit. (My truck plate is also H2OHNTR ):rolleyes:

I became facinated with catfish as a little boy while spending all my summers in Thomas, W.VA. The older boys would go "Down The Dam" everyday a bring catfish back to my grandfather. He'd give the boys 10 cents a piece for them and put them in a big wash tub full of water and let them swim around for a day before he cleaned them. I'd watch those things for hours wishing I was big enough to fish for them but The Dam was too dangerous according to my grandmother. Well the summer finally came when I was 10 yrs. old and allowed to go to The Dam. For the next 7 yrs. I fished The Dam everyday during the summer. Pretty soon I was pretty good at catching cats and learned different techniques through trial and error. I did't know it at the time but that's where I learned to live-line. Well to make a long story short my grandfather started calling me Catman. Now you know the rest of the story. :D

Catman.;)

In the boaters world

a boat made by Hatteras yacths is called a Hat for short. A long time ago on a computer far away I tried to get the screen name Hat79 as my boat was built in 1979 by Hatteras Yacths. Hat79 was taken so I settled for Hat80.

Hey rhondel,
As a musician myself I had a feeling the first time I saw your screen name, it just had to be. As a former member of Baltimores own Ronnie Dove band, who by the way is my cousin...LOL

When you come on your trip with me and you will, bring what ever it is you play. I play bass, guitar and keys. We'll fish and jam to our little hearts content. Hell, we'll charge the other three guys a cover for the show. :cool: ....Tightlines
