1991 Season

1991 - Fishing was very slow, but we were the first one to find a group of feeders and got bit on the troll. Geoffrey got it while Carolyn, Alan Smith (an LABC member) gave encouragement. We had to call in our location for the report and the next day 3 more fish were caught almost exactly on the numbers. In the AM we headed back and were about 1/2 mile from the spot watching the "LEGEND" hook up exactly 1/2 mile ahead of us. But we were the only ones in Division II. Result: 1st PLACE, DIVISION II. We got some beautiful watches and Geoffrey, Kenneth and Daniel still have theirs (as in mine and Carolyn's.)

      The major accomplishment was our participation in the Marlin Club ILTT and that went well. On Oct 15 Daniel and I took a couple of the girls from my office out for a taste of it all. We got lucky and Susan McEvoy brought in a 107 pound fish on 20# line. The Mission Bay Marlin Club Heart Tournament was being held that day (October 5th) and they rated the winner with the smallest fish. We would have won that going away, but hadn't entered. But, at least, the girls had something to remember.
