I loved Kathy...


I'm so sorry. I can't imagine what you and Melissa have had to deal with these last 8 months. I pray that your strength continues to carry you forward.

Know that Kathy has left an impression and I for one will never forget her.

It saddens my heart to announce Kathy Pomo succomed to the cancer she has been fighting for the past 8 months. She loved to fish and enjoyed all the social events. We were togeather 51 years and it will be a challange to go on without her.
Thanks Geoff

Glad to hear you're thinking about getting back into it. I'm a huge fan of anyone doing this especially someone like you who has a true passion for it. The fish are behind SCI for the larger BFT at season end but there are a lot of other options fishing the islands etc...And from SD you have a lot of options too. The seasons cycle so don't be surprised when we have YT and Dorado on paddies at the 267 again soon!


Go for it!

Mostly correct, welcome back...get it done.

Well, I thought I would start a discussion with the club since you guys are tuned into what's going on with the local scene better than I am.

My finances are better now, better than they were even 2 years ago. (I wish Bob hadn't sold his boat).

I can afford to buy a small boat and pay for slip fees. I have a line on a older 24 ft Topaz a guy will be putting on the market in a few months. It has a 6bt cummins with 330 hp in it, recent electronics, recent tower, repaint and a first class repower job. Small at 24 feet but according to his history it gets 2.5 mph at 25 kts, tops out at 27 kts. These boats are short but are tanks. I can put the trailer in my backyard and haul it to SD rather than driving from Dana harbor.

When we first bought the Blackman, fishing the area from the coast, to Cat and SCI was generally pretty good in the summer but it seems that area has been bad for a long time. I realize I missed out on the past 10 years or so. Now, it seems the tuna are behind SCI and farther out....I think that's a little far for a 24 ft boat. It seems you have to go a long way to catch fish these days.

Am I being too negative or am I missing the normal cycles of nature?

Thanks, Bill

Thanks, Jeff.

It was kind of a lazy fish but I'll take that everyday. Fun trip even though it was a looooong way out there. ;)
