Craig Dickason says working for a few months on Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean does have some advantages. This Yellowfin tuna certainly qualifies as a very acceptable “extra curricular activity”!
Our friend Bob Bolger shows off a very nice 38″, 16 lb. striped bass caught off Swampscott, MA a couple of weeks ago on his friend Gene’s boat. After being caught trolling a tube and worm the fish was released after a couple pictures. Well done, Bob!
John Doolittle sent us this picture of his Walleye Assassin Team from a recent trip to Bolton Lake in Manitoba. Team includes John, Kevin Shandera, Bob Doolittle, Tom Doolittle, Larry Carr, Carter, Tom.
This picture may be pretty hard to see, but it’s all Gunther Van Ginneken has to show for a 6 ft+ (!), 100 lb Wels catfish he fought for 30 minutes when fishing in his float tube. The fish was so big he couldn’t land it (how do you pull a 100 lb fish on a float tube?) This was as close as he got before release!
How about a 56 lb salmon? Dan Ross says that’s exactly what this young lady has a grip on. Looks like Oregon will be on our bucket list! Visit Dan’s site at http://www.drsportfishingcostarica.com
