A bag of Zapps Crawtators MUST be on the boat to catch fish!

A bikini top hanging from the t-top is a good luck charm...


...the more bikinis hanging up there, the better.

Let me tell you a little story. Approx 2-3 months before Katrina hit New Orleans, I was there for a business meeting. Walking down Bourbon Street one night, a co-worker came running up to me and gave me "The Fish God" saying she found it in a store and just had to get it for me. So, the Fish God kinda became our good luck charm by accident. I was fishing a 35' Viking at the time and there was a VHF radio holder mounted outside the salon door(the little black box you see in the picture) facing the cockpit where we placed the fish god for every trip. For the next 2 years, I enjoyed some of my best fishing ever. Definitely the best up to that point. In February 2007, my boat caught fire. We put it out but the problems became electrical and everything in the boat started melting and smoldering and I knew that it was a matter of time before it re-erupted. I instructed my crew to inflate the raft and get in it. One of my crew and I were the last 2 off the boat. As we were getting ready to board the raft, the salon bulkhead burst into flames and pretty much everything forward of that was on fire.

I know that the fish god held that fire back just long enough for us to get in that raft and away from the boat before it became fully engulfed. We got off without a scratch. I rescued The Fish God from the ravages of Katrina and he re-paid that by protecting my crew and I. Great karma.

So you know, The Fish God is the one with blue and red feathers. The guy is one of my buddies who was on the boat that day.

You sure that qualifies as a good luck charm? I guess if it got you off the boat it sure does, did you get another one? Sorry about your boat to, glad everyone was safe!

Thanks for all the replys everone, I always feel pretty lucky when my girls on the boat also.
