A googan is the person wearing saltlife or any other trendy sports clothing that is completely clueless in the ways of fishing. They will use tactics that are completely backwards. The googan will come to the pier and use bobbers and a weight. A googan will post fish on social media and claim a size that is beyond a hyperbole. A googan will overreact when catching any sized fish, ever!!

You know you've got a googan on your hands when they say "the other day," "last time," or "my friend" kinda of tales.

Googans will ruin a fishing spot faster than morons with a cast net. You know a googan was around when you reel in your line and snag 10' or more line with a lure on it and the worst knot you've ever seen. Googans will have too many company stickers on their cars. Googans will take excessive amount of pictures of their fish. If 1 or more of these examples describes you, YOU'RE A FUCKING GOOGAN!!!!
Why is all this fishing line in the water?

Ah, those damn googans must have been here!

A googan is an offshore fishermen who constantly loses fish that the average fishermen would catch. 'Googans' tend to 'set the hook' when using circle hooks. A googan would not survive if stranded on a desert island with all the fishing tackle in the world, because a googan does not know how to tie the simplest of fishing knots.
Jim Warstler is a googan.
