    Re: South Tower Mayhem!

    I was there on Thursday. first time on a partyboat up here. was a blast! sure is different than the "everyman for himself" mentality of southern cal fishing boats. I cannot say enough about Mike the deckhand. the guy didn't stop working for a second! the entire crew, for that matter. I can honestly say it was the best atmosphere i'd ever experienced on a partyboat. newbies and seasoned oldtimers all working together to catch fish. thats as good as it gets.

    Cal is to be commended, as well. I doubt he fished much, if at all. he was doing everything he could to ensure everyone was accommodated and catching fish. I didn't know what to expect from that guy, but I can say he's the real deal, humble and down to earth.

    as for myself, I decked 3 keeper stripers (kept 2) and a healthy keeper halibut. when it came to the halibut, that's mike's fish as much as my own. had he not been on top of everyones bait bucket, I probably would have gone with a less than lively bait instead of taking the time to get fresh. that guy was on top of it. always had fresh bait in that bucket and a net waiting for the fish. this was a nearly full boat of fishermen, too.

    just a great trip! thanks cal and the California dawn. looking forward to the next one!

    South Tower Mayhem!

    The adrenaline seemed to sizzle in my brain. It was the kind of excitement that only saltwater anglers can understand. I was living the dream, helping California Dawn deckhand Mike Verrone work the deck during a wide-open bite right underneath … Continued
