I tell them that I don't want anything that smells fishy on the end of my pole.

My favorites were,

Oh you must fish. No

Oh you must ski. No

Oh well what do you do with it? I just run around and socialize with my friends.

I don't mind the young children asking those questions. I always give a kind answer and you can always tell the ones that have been bitten by the bug. But what kills me is you know those kids grow up and still ask the same questions, which puts them in the dumb a$$ category.

No, some old guy at the Coast Guard ramp. Come to think of it, I think that was the same day we met GL in person...

"Wow look how big the trailer is" when just pulling up the ramp after the boat is off the trailer.
"whats in that a big block"
"Nice boat"
"how fast does it go"
after firing up the engines "well there goes the fish for the day"

Not at the ramp, but we had a 454 with a goodsized hole in the block and this "wooden boater" strolls up and says "WOW!! That is a nice healthy V-8!"
