When all else fails, Smack em' in the Mouth!
Bass fishing from a boat isn't boring, but I agree the time we went out into the pacific to fish was boring as hell. We went out on a small boat probably meant for 20 fisherman loaded with closer to 40. There was no casting, just hang the rod over the edge and release the line, let it hit bottom, wait about 10 minutes and real it in. Have 3 or 4 fish and do it over.
I was young and we didnt keep all the fish we caught, it appears we paid the boat owner to be his workers for a day, because no fish were returned to the sea.
