The good old days.
One of my valued possessions are a rod and reel that Gdude (may he rest in light as the Turkish saying goes) had made and gave me.
About the third GTG in Catalina; Gdude had just caught his fifth bonito when he handed to me the rig that he was using. Up to then I had not landed a single bonito even though I was using everything the others were using. I had hooked one, but a sea lion took the fish along with all my braid on the spool.

I quickly hooked six and landed three. Monkey off my back. I was elated. I immediately offered to purchase the setup which included a Buzzbomb lure from Canada. Later I lost that lure in Hermosa from the pier after catching a lot of mackerel in cast after cast.

He simply said “keep it”. I was surprised and loving it. May he rest in peace.

Well the rest is as they say “history”. By now I had the fortune of landing many bonitos.

Was sitting at the computer this morning, playing some Dylan, and thinking that most of our younger anglers have probably never heard Dylan's "Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again."

Herein a few versions.

1. Dylan on an early acoustic version of “Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again” (with slightly different wording). Not as good as the final version in my opinion.

2. A good Grateful Dead version of “Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again”

3. A third version of the song by Old Crow Medicine Show.

Perhaps some day I’ll get someone to see what “Stuck Inside of Catalina With The Bonito Blues Again” would sound like.
