Hi Jeff and Bob,

Well without overstating the obvious that was one heck of a fishing trip on Sunday!!! Boys had an absolute blast and there is no doubt you’ve fueled the fishing fire in all of their little bellies.

The Kenny Family waiting on Bob to get ready (that is another story we can skip for now)

First Drop of the Day and First Fish on the Birthday Rod

Myles turned 7 on that day, and I can tell you he’s completely hooked (pun intended) on this whole fishing gig. Myles asked me today on the way to camp, “When I start working, how often can I fish?” Great question, Myles, great question. I’ve attached a few (okay, more than a few) pics of the big day.

Again, you guys are ROCKSTARS for taking the time and interest to help teach the next generation of fishermen. Looking forward to more outings with you guys for many seasons to come.

All the best,


It was a pleasure having the Kenny Klan on board the Fortuna. It was an awesome day on the water and a great way to celebrate the birthday. Looking forward to doing it again.

Happy Birthday Myles

Old Time's .. Very Old Time's Indeed.. :)

Bob…here's the pics of Brian I promised…. Sorry they're not in such good shape. Back when these were taken, they had these things called Polaroids, and someone owned the shots…..

Here's the shots with Brian in them. We were both skinny dudes once upon a time…. But as you can tell, he was more the stud than I….

Here's the shot of my 200lb Kamikaze on a 50 wide single speed on a Calstar 655xxh. This fish won the jackpot I embarrassed to say… On the other hand, I was the only one that decided not to go to sleep like Frank LoPreste said, and the only one stupid enough to use a 2 foot long scad. Frank said it was strange looking 200….looked a lot larger when we actually brought it on board, versus its actual weigh-in at the dock.

Here's a shot of the results of my "once-in-a-lifetime" night/morning at Roca Partida. A 150, 155, 175 Kamikaze that shook the gaff and fought for another 2 hours, and the 200 Kamikaze on the scad that started the all night/morning bite.

No worries on the Quality of the pics Mike.
What really counts is the content of the pictures.
Single Speed and No Spectra........
I need to stream some Earth Wind and Fire and we would be Full Speed Old School.
