Participated as a volenteer Captain for the Monterey Bay Disabled Veterns Chapter this past weekend. We took 8th place out of 25 boats, and I must say it was one of the most enjoyable days fishing I have had in a long time.

My vet was a Viet Nam era Marine, and we had alot to share me being an RVN vet myself. I also took along an active duty Navy enlistedman from NPS. And lastly my main deckhand Randy.

The eighth place finish garnered my vet a high end fishing pole along with other swag. and I won a Benjimin in the Captains pool! How about those beans eh!

If you have a boat or know somone who does please consider participating in one of these derbys as they are held throughout the country. You will not regret it.

I will post our weigh in shot as soon as I figure out how to resize the pix.
