Ok, first I want to say I'm NOT superstitious, knock on wood. But my experience has been that bananas are bad juju while pursuing piscatorial prey.....

I know alot of your guys/gals feel bananas are just the ticket, but I don't.....

Here's the question.... where can I find some anti-banana decals for the windows of my boat? I've done internet searches on several occasions, and found nothing.

Pearl had a great picture of Just what I'm looking for on Woody's recent "Bananas? It's true! Ask Mr. X" thread.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...... thanks, Tim :grin:

Thanks Tom, but that's a political activist anti-banana site, and they don't have any decals.

I'm not against bananas! In fact, I love bananas, in my cereal, or my fruit salad. I eat 'em all the time..... but not on the boat...

Anybody????

Yeah..... exactly *** Clerk! That's what I'm lookin' for, except in a decal I can buy online, since I live many many miles from a city....

I think pearl is out of town this week, so I'll try to answer for him. From what I understand, they were custom made by one his fishing buddies and they are no longer available.

An ole' time story..... black widow spiders on a merchant ship long ago.... loaded with the cargo of bananas.... many of the crew died.

I've been on many fishin' trips over the years, and when bananas were aboard, fish just didn't have ANY interest in bitin'...... Is it bogus superstition? Of course! Do I still want those anti-banana decals? Yep..... :grin:

Thanks Dampainter..... and if that's the case, then I'll just have to wait. Maybe I'll be able to cajole a fellow ifisher into gettin' me a couple and sending 'em to me....

I was hopin' someone would come up with an internet site I hadn't been able to find.....

Thanks all..... Tim :smile:

I still say this whole banana thing as bad luck is bull.

However I do admit that the decals are kind of cool.

I think it would be fun to have one on the boat with a bigger circle & line over the whole decal. That would say please bring your bananas. :grin:

You people and your banana fears.
I still have not found that a banana is bad luck. I have caught more fish with a banana in my hand than I have without. Woody knows.

Heck I use a banana peel as a strike indicator. :bowdown:
