“Trawling” is a word used to describe the unsavory act of picking up unattractive women. The net is cast out, and whatever fish you catch will do. Sometimes a man will trawl a whale, sometimes a prawn. Trawling usually occurs when a man is drunk and extremely horny. While it is not an ideal practice, most men at some point in their life, have trawled.
Trawling was a word suggested by a fellow pirate, Arrr!!! We first used the expression on the Siege of the Adriatic, where we recently spent 24 consecutive nights dressed as Mexican Pirates, traveling in the Balkans. Thankfully, I did not engage in trawling on the trip. The same could not be said for some of my friends! haha
