  1. Yes those four tags. Lol
  2. These are a horrible product compared to the originals. it would be better to look for warrior pre 80’s. Then get them refurbished Ine I’m redoing for a friend.
  3. More big fish that Harry landed and weighed in.
  4. Yes we did have a lot of salmon runs off the beach. Though looking at Jimmy in his wetsuit my guess would have been the big Rock at mussel. As for buying my first Fixter’s Yes all my money for gear came from my paper route. That or I’d find lures the day after big runs. Guys would be popping off plugs like crazy.
  5. John and Steve Scott. John was part owner in the first Coastside bait and tackle. He was still active in the fishing world. If you ever walked into the Rusty Hook he was the old guy playing Cribbage. Note the limit was 3 or 5 when this picture was taken
  6. Old timer. Way before my time. Rumor is this is Moocks but he flatly denies it
  7. Young guns back in the day. Jimmy Zoph and I think Eugene Otenello.
  8. Thanks Ted. Out here there is a huge gap in those that fished back then and the younger or newer guys that didn’t experience that type of fishing. Im hoping guys will see what this fishery was like and with the hope that guys start releasing schoolies with the thought of sowing the field and getting rewarded with the feeling of hooking bigger fish including some true monsters. Remembering that those sub 35” fish are the future 40# fish i need to actually find my older photos and go back into my computer to search for those.
  9. DD I never swam to Johnny’s Rock. I can’t claim that feat. By the time Johnny was doing that I was at a point of my life where I was knocking spots off my list rather than adding them. Lol. I did however take the picture of those guys catching fish on that rock. See what f I can find it on my phone.
  10. A young Winch with Harry Bode. I spent a lot of time fishing with Harry. Harry with another quality fish
  11. Harry Bode and one of his many 40 pounds plus. Think this is mid 1960’s
  12. Ron Bode sent me these. I’m guessing 60’s. limit was Five back then. I believe that’s the Otenello family
  13. That was a beast
