    Well, I'm from Minnesota and we have more than 11,000 lakes. I chose 5lakes because we have five of those lakes inside the city limits.

    I canoe and fish on all five.

    hookup Smoke Blower

    About 20 years ago I took a long-range, 10 day, salt water fishing trip out of San Diego, CA down the coast of baja.

    Preparing for the trip was a tremendous outlay of cash for extra gear, line, hard baits, cloths, etc.

    The day before the trip I discoverd I needed some rubber boots. Helly hansons were the prefered choice, but at $40 a pair, I didn't have the extra cash. Found a pair of knee high rubber boots for $5 -- problem was they were white as snow.

    When I got onto the boat I realized my mistake. The boat was the Qualifier 105 (105 feet) and we had about 40 serious anglers on board. I was the joke of the boat with my fairy boots. Being short, and having a tough skin, I took the ribbing in stride and said "Just wait until we are on the rail and I'll turn these boots red with all the blood from the fish I catch".

    When you catch big fish on a commercial charter that size you have to allert the deck hands by yelling you have a fish. I choose to yell "Hook Up" and a deck hand would come running; because the capt of the boat wants the big fish for advertisement reasons.

    I yelled "HookUp" so much on that trip that I gained the respect of the anglers, so much so they nicknamed me HookUp. I came home with the second biggest catch (in pounds) of the boat and won a jackpot big enough to pay for the trip and a 5-day trip the following week.

    Through out the years, my fishing buddys kept the moniker; so when I started surfing fishing boards on the net, it was obvious what my screen name would be.
  9. It's the name of my fantasy catering business that exists only in my head... lol
  10. Well no real story... Just was kind of like.. "Hey they want me to sign up I don't think anyone would use this"
  11. hannibal

    hannibal Smoke Blower

    I post under the same name for another forum (unrelated to smoking meat). So it just made sense to carry it over.

    I picked up the nick name of Hannibal years ago when I always worked with 3 other people on the same shift and we always seemed to find trouble in whatever we did. Of course their monikers were, BA, Face and Murdock. It started off as a joke but it kinda stuck from there. It didn't hurt that I am a big A-Team fan.

    Like my A-Team counterpart, I enjoy an occasional cigar. On my old shift, I was the ranking person in the group and I seemed to always be the man with a plan; though, I'll admit my plans didn't always work!
