Hi all!
Nothing unusual here either! David from NH Seacoast. Just a 14 mile stretch of rocky Striper Surf Fishing heaven, I call my back yard.
This thread reminds me of a thread I started at another site called, "Show your ugly mug!"
in a photo! It produced close to a thousand posts last I saw. Really nice to put a face to a name.

Thept is short for "The Perfect Touch" which was a soccer training clinic that I started and ran. I have coached soccer for 20 years now and just retired from that and will be spending much more time fishing. Hopefully I can carry my perfect touch into catching stripers

as for mine, I used to play paintball when I was younger "only 22" wasnt to much younger, you would hide behind bunkers and i'd always be the guy to shoot apart the other guys bunker with paint and finally get him out. Now that im out fishing again my preferred choice of bait for these stripers would be bunker. A little merge and you have myname...fish.gif

Mine is pretty obvious, well at least the DJ part. I have been a professional DJ for 25 years, the club and mobile scene here in L.A. The Rude Dogg part came from dance crew that I was in back in high school a group of us guys called ourselves the Rude Doggz, were were also a jazz saxophone section and did kind of a SKA/Reggae thing with long trenchcoats and 40's style Fedoras. So I guess my name is more musical related (obviously) than fishing. I have used the name RuDeDoGG or DJ RuDeDoGG or RudeDog66 on a number of fishing, Pro DJ, Automotive, astronomy, amateur radio and music related sites for well over 10 years, oh and of course FaceBook and MySpace.

When I was in college me and a group of guys would fish largemouth and small mouth at different ponds around the area we lived. "Jackbass" was a name we would use to refer to ourselves when we were catching fish almost like an alter ego. Jackbass was like the ultimate fisherman I guess "That's why they call me "Jackbass" kind of thing. It was just a fun thing we would do. At the end of the outing someone was alway the "Jackbass" of the day.

So I used it for my screen name.

Bowditch Bay is a fictitious body of water featured on an instructional nautical chart. I first ran into this chart during a USCG Power Squadron course with my kids. When the kids asked me where Bowditch Bay was I told them it must be nautical slang for running aground. Dead Man's Cove, Ship Wreck Ledge, Bowditch Bay, that sort of thing. I could not have been more wrong.
Turns out Nathaniel Bowditch, born 1773 in Salem, MA was a sea loving mathematician and is considered the father of modern maritime navigation. His book The New American Practical Navigator, first published in 1802, is still carried onboard every commissioned U.S. Naval vessel.
Since I splash about looking for stripers in Mr. Bowditch's native Salem waters and use his charts to keep from getting lost I thought I'd give him this nod for good luck on both fronts.

"Carry on Mr. Bowditch" is a great book for the Kids to read too. Particularly if they are into the ocean. Nathaniel Bowditch was an original Yankee! In the Yankee ingenuity sense. He never went to college and learned pretty much everything from self study and being on the water. He was later in life given an honorary degree from Harvard, he was sitting in the gallery at the commencement and didn't even know he was going to receive the honor.

That is your Clavinism of the day.

My name is Jeff. Once upon a time in 1986, I believe, I was 18. My cousin got married and I had a few drinks at her reception. Then I went to a friends high school graduation party and had a few more. On the return home I staggered to another friends door only to realize that there was a party going on there as well. I stayed for quite a few more cocktails. During this period I was introduced to another friends new girlfriend. Sometime during the party she was yelling across the room. "Biff, Biff, hey Biff " her boyfriend looked at her and said "who the f#@$ are you talking to" and she pointed at me and said "him aint his name Biff?" From that point on I was and am still known as Biff. Since I had no choice in the name I figured I would at least spell it the way I wanted to and came up with BYF.

In short I was too drunk to defend myself.

moby dick, i like the first paragraph:

"Call me Ishmael. ... Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off - then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. ... If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards the ocean with me."

Re: Your Member Name?

I had sold my bass boat before I joined this forum and was fishing out of a canoe when I couldn't bum a ride with my buddies...add the fact that FOGHAT RULES!!! band.gif (CLASSIC ?!? rock..man, I'm getting OLD!!)
I met the drummer from Fogat a few times at blues shows my buddy promotes Roger Earl ... he is an avid fisherman.....he lives in Long Island these days so he can fish as much as possible
