Bud Waleski, right, and his two buddies went a fishin' December 12 in the Rappahannock River off of Urbanna Creek, VA, and got a 45-in. striped bass. Bud is the president of the Southeastern Mariners Grady-White Club, and the name of his Sailfish 282, "Sceam", is derived from the first letter of his four daughters' and his wife's names.
Puerto Del Ray - Waldy Lopez, left, and family and friends had a good catch of snapper on Release 283, "Mariemma".
Gail Butler caught this almost 25-lb., 40-in. striped bass in the Chesapeake out of the Rappahannock River, not bad for a striper rookie, on just her second day out! It was the best fish of the season for Gail and husband Beverly's new Gulfstream 232, "Empty Wallet". The Butlers are members of the Southeastern Mariners Grady-White Club.
Second place, Fishing Bay Harbor Tournament, Deltaville, VA, December 31. Ed Bischoff, center, caught the 30-lb., 42-in. striper and hand-lined it in for about 50 feet after the line got tangled with another. Wife Priscilla is at right, and their friend friend Bubba Peele is at left. Ed and Priscilla have a Sailfish 282, "Fishbonz", purchased from Southeastern Marine in Richmond, VA.
Dennis Kaler went out on the Chesapeake last December with Skip Zinck on Zinck's Sailfish 272 and brought in this nice rockfish.
Alan Murray of Gloucester, MA, is really landing the tuna since he purchased a Marlin 300, the largest so far weighing 150 lb. Here he is with his son, Seth.
Ron Schaefer and daughter, Wendy, show off some nice striped bass caught on the Choptank River over the Thanksgiving holiday. This Baltimore, MD, family enjoyed their last fishing day of the 2007 season aboard their Express 305, "Mellowfive".
Matt Hatch has a hefty 24-lb. California yellowtail caught with his dad, Ron Hatch, aboard a Sailfish 282 near Church Rock in Catalina, CA.
Jon Klein caught a 40-pound-plus bull dolphin November 10 aboard his Bimini 306, "Becca Sue". "The fish was under three frigate birds, and ate an islander/ballylhoo combination." His Grady dealer is Pompano Beach Marine Center, Pompano Beach, FL.
Patti and Dale Belknap's eight-year-old grandson, Owen, has fished with them for several years and has caught numerous striped bass or rockfish. The Belknap family enjoys outings on the Potomac aboard their Islander 270, "Hard to Resist".
Patti and Dale Belknap's four-year-old grandson, Ellis, caught his first rockfish on the Potomac River in Maryland this summer aboard Islander 270, "Hard to Resist". "Both the baby rockfish and the grandson were released back to their 'parents'."
