Fishing going crazy

Capt. Frank Bourgeois
April 30, 2016
Hernando Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

I had charters this week and slammed fish everywhere I went. Everyone is a hero at this time of year. We caught Sharks, Grouper, Trout, cobia, mackerel and more. this was after we threw the bananas in the water. Please don't bring bananas on a fishing boat. It is also a insult to the captain.
1.Deadly spiders loved banana trees. While spider-ridden bananas were being shipped in boats across the ocean from Africa, the spiders would come out at night, kill sailors, bite sailors, and wreak havoc on any ship.
2."The Smoking Gun" effect. When a ship would come across wreckage in the ocean (from a ship that had sunk), one of the most common things floating would be the heaps of bananas (so they associated bananas with bad luck on ships)
3.Bananas emit a unique fermentation stench that kills other fruit around them (this is true), thus killing off many of the sailors food supplies on long trips
4.Termites. The myth was that termites would also come out of the heaps of bananas, eat the wooden ships, and the rest is history…
5.Fast "Banana boats". The 5th bad luck banana myth revolves around the fact that the cargo ships containing bananas had to move across the ocean faster than any other ship (makes sense due to the fact that bananas will rot and go bad). And because of this, the sailors that were accustomed to fishing on other ships began to say that "Banana Boats" were bad luck for fishing as they could never catch anything due to the speed.
