Jack Brink sends in photos of him and daughter, Ashley, and son, Jackson, catching amberjack ("reef donkeys") the week before Thanksgiving 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico off the South Pass Block 90 platforms. The family owns a 2005 Sailfish 28. "Come fish Louisiana!"
David Bradman and Eduardo Herrera happened to bring up this sailfish off Miami aboard Bradman's 2003 Bimini 306, just as 'Sport Fishing' magazine representatives passed by and snapped a picture before the release. The 30-40 lb. billfish was caught on light tackle, 15-lb. test. "It jumped a lot!" said Bradman.
Tom Bridges caught this barracuda while offshore from Fort Myers, FL, on Marlin 300, "Bear Down", owned by parents Allen and Vicki Bridges. This is the family's second Grady-White.
Mo' Coho Most Fish! - Rob Bridge went out with Jeff and Tamara Melvin from Sekiu, WA, aboard their 23' Gulfstream. Rob started out with the hot rod but was surpassed on the final day by Jeff winning both the largest Coho caught (18.2 lb.) and the most fish for the trip. The event was celebrated by Jeff performing the traditional Big Fish Dance.
Successful First Days! - John Tickle took his new Fisherman 230 to Florida from Tennessee, and within the first two days he got his first sailfish and his crew also released a 400 lb. blue marlin, in addition to getting into the dolphin. Here are Clint Sales and Trey Taylor with the sail.
Tim Woolard knows that nightime is the right time for big fall drum off NC coast! He owns a Fisherman 222.
James Taylor rounded up his summer with a 115-pound bluefin tuna caught off the Jersey shore aboard his Express 265, "Screw Loose".
Sara Clark of Ocracoke, NC, is 'Salt Water Fishing' magazine's August 2010 Babe of the Month for her wahoo caught aboard Bert and Wayne Clark's "Lazy Grady", a renovated 1992 Explorer 24.
Robert Schlicting keeps his classic 1988 Grady-White Fisherman 249 in Manahawkin, NJ. He's modified the helm seating and console and really keeps up the brightwork and teak on this beauty. Keemo Sabe has provided many days of great family and friend fishing up to 35 miles off the New Jersey coast.
Night Fishing - Cal Darula says "Little Gradys can catch big fish!" He brought in a nice one on his Sportsman 180. He's a Catalano & Sons customer out of Connecticut.
Deborah and Donald Hempel of Lorton, VA, have trailered their Tournament 205 about 2000 miles to Trinity Bay, Newfoundland, where they summer on Gooseberry Cove. They participated in the cod fish "food fishery," a limited open time for recreational fishing.
Bud Wasierski says, "I love my boat!" His 2001 Seafarer 228 is great for Dungeness crab fishing inside the north jetty at the mouth of the Columbia River, WA, (buddy Troy shown here), and great for salmon fishing with buddies Tom, Bill, Sam and Troy out of Illwaco, WA.
