Boyd Zumwalt’s son is all smiles over this beautiful sailfish (his first) caught out of Punta Colorado on a G. Loomis rod with a Accurate 2 speed reel. Congratulations to all!
You know, we just love receiving pictures of kids and grandkids and their trophies. Here’s one we received from Bob Tartaglia of his son Robbie with his first tuna. This beauty weighed in at 30 lbs and gave him a great fight on his “ultra-light” G. Loomis ProGreen rod and Shimano Saragosa 8000 spinning reel. Well done, Robbie!
“You’re never too old to learn to fish,” say Cathy Jo Noack. She holds the proof with this nice 19″ largemouth caught in a small lake outside of Tremont, Illinois. Now we won’t tell you Cathy Jo’s age, but she does say “what was I waiting for” with the sincerity (and wisdom) of middle age!
Sweet victory! Robbie Gaddis and Todd Dixon show the fruits of their labors with these two Bassin KY-33 divisional championship awards won recently on Barkley Lake using G. Loomis rods and Shimano reels. Sincerest congratulations!
OK, these aren’t fish, but Captain Tom Wulff says lobster season off Marathon, Florida is awesome this year and holds his proof. Guess if we can’t eat fish every day these will have to do! Would someone pass the butter…
My oh my! A 20 lb lake trout has always been one of our “trophy” thresholds, so this 21 pounder caught by Captain Dave Cronk of KF Charters (www.kdcharters.com) certainly impressed all of us here at ALFC. Nice fish? That’s an understatement!
JA Lindberg sent us this marvelous picture of his friend Torvald and this beautiful 12 ½ lb trout caught in the mountains of Sweden in a lake that wasn’t supposed to hold fish such as this. Obviously Torvald dispelled that rumor!
Our friend Todd Dixon shows off a nice Kentucky Lake largemouth caught recently. We think Todd’s hat must have had something to do with this nice catch! Well done, Todd!
Our pal Barry Battista says this 8 lb fluke will make at least 3 good meals. Our mouth is watering! Barry caught this bad boy in Ambrose Channel (also known locally as the “fluke super highway”) off New Jersey. Excellent!
Ah, a quiet moment where it’s just you, your fishing rod, and the water. Nazario D Silva sends us this great picture of just that at Harkness Park. What a great way to close this edition of the newsletter!
Please, folks, send us some of your pictures. We’re not after trophies, just pictures of fish you’re proud of. It’s easy. Just attached them to an email and send them to us at [email protected] and we’ll do our best to get them in the newsletter. Send them in to us!
