There isn't a lot of history behind my username. I love kayak and fishing and decided to use them in my username. I was lazy to think of anything else.

My dad was a commercial fisherman. I was raised on his "fish tales". Over and over again I would hear him say, " I ever tell u about...." I would think to myself, " yeah dad...". But you know what, even though he would tell the same stories over and over, I never got tired of any of them. Then one day I bought a Harley and I put Samson fish tail pipes on it. So with my best friend in mind I put JSFISHTALES on the plates. Hence Janines fishtales!

Anyone new?

It's been 6 months since the last post to this thread, and I've seen some new faces, and always wondering ....

Where DID that username come from?

The Pelican - I started kayak fishing on a tandem Pelican from Costco 7 years ago with a buddy who was so broke he brought a broom handle tied to mono as his rod. No joke. Eventually we figured it out and caught some decent fish (WSB and YT) on the tandem kayak. I'm peddling the Outback now but the Pelican still has a place in my heart.

It's a really long story. Short version: I was hanging out with some other sailors in Virginia and someone else couldn't turn a wrench and I said, "Let me put some beef behind that." After multiple people proclaimed that it was impossible, I put the beef behind the wrench and turned it. People thought the name was fitting and it stuck. 78 was my football number in high school.

Simple for me, born and raised in Ireland, left when I was 21, arrived in San Diego and a couple of guys I used to hang and surf with gave me the name. When I was making the drop on a nice wave they would yell out Irishman, cause 20 years ago in San Diego not to many Irish guys surfing.

A decade later I had a similar experience. I posted my first real Kayak Halibut report with this Redondo Halibut
This time local internet "kayak board guru" got bent out of shape and Internet Kayak Guru2 and his buddies have been stirring up trouble for me on the kayak boards ever since. I guess you could say some things change, some things never change, I got stuck with my real name on the boards after that first day. I never felt the overwhelming need to change it since then
Famous last words.. Ha Ha Ha!!!

Someone brought up that old post to me last night, and we had a good laugh about it. I guess some things do change.

Internet Kayak Guru2 and his lynch mob mentality buddies mentioned above eventually caused me so much trouble in the real world (offline) that I finally was forced to stop posting fish reports, and shortly after that post I changed all my fishing board names away from my real name.

"Fiskadoro" is a post apocalyptic novel set in the Florida Keys by Dennis Johnson. Kind of a "Mad Max" meets Hemingway's "Old Man and the Sea" I named the first boat I built after that Novel because it was a solo fishing craft built in kind of a Mad Max type manner so it seemed to be a good idea for a screen name.

I should of changed my board name a decade ago. Like with all bullies internet stalkers like to feel like they are really hurting someone. Using my real name made the attacks personal on my end, and that just made me a juicier target, because it gave those creeps a chance to hurt me directly while still staying (somewhat) anonymous themselves.

I don't get why some take so much pleasure in trying to hurt others, take this internet bullshit so seriously, or try to take it out into the real world, but they do. I guess those marginalized in real life want to feel they are having some kind of effect even if it's only online. To me it seems cheap, disgusting, the bottom of the barrel when it comes to human nature, but it does seem to be part of the internet low life culture that some gravitate to.

Since changing my board name the online attacks have slowed down, and at least now when someone types my real name into Google they are no linked to some lunatic ranting about how I'm an asshole because a decade ago I once said Malibu is a good place to fish Seabass in the spring.

So sometimes things do change and they can change for the better. I suppose those idiots feel they won because I had to change my name, and no longer post my trips online, but I like the new name, and really don't care if people know what I'm catching or not, and the change definitely has been a very good thing for me.

if you break it up, it is my job and last name. My last name is Kastoll, you can figure out the rest. In San Diego, you see my colleagues in green uniforms pretty much everywhere.
