FLASHBACK:

I came across this old photo, circa 1981, while cleaning up my office. It's yours truly (I aged gracefully,lol), night fishing from the catwalk on the W. Gandy Blvd. Bridge, holding a Ladyfish. Photo quality is not the best, it's back when you didn't always have a camera in your pocket, they needed film, had no idea how the photo looked until a week later, were not waterproof, didn't make phone calls, and forget the world wide web, it wasn't invented yet. I wonder what other vintage fish photos await me in that big box in the closet, hours at the scanner are in my future.

About Fishin Dude
A little about me
Description:
I was born and raised in central NJ. My earliest fishing memories are catching Panfish with a cane pole, followed by Catfish with an old Zebco enclosed push button reel on a 3 ft pole using hotdogs as bait. Alot of time has passed since those days. I now travel to fishing locations by car, boat, or aircraft, instead of bycycle or a ride from my parents. I have met and swapped stories, tips, laughs, and tears with a variety of fishermen worldwide, from all walks of life, and made great friends too.
