NO BANANAS - It may be an old wives tale, but it's a fact that Bananas are Bad Luck on a fishing charter boat. History tells us that this tale originated from early years when boats with Bananas in the cargo, ran aground, got lost at sea, or lost many of their crew members to a deadly sickness. Further investigation indicated that the bananas were also prone carry to the deadly tarantula spiders.
Today, I believe that bananas are safe, but just to make sure that we have great day on the bay, let's leave the bananas home.
