Stuck in Catalina With The Bonito Blues Again


Senior Member
Thanks for the stroll down memory lane.

The "Raki" is actually a national drink of Turkiye (new name of the country and what Turkish people refer to their country).

It took me three trips to Avalon to beat the bonito blues. Thanks to generosity of late Gdude. After he limited on bonito he gave me his home made rod to cast. I hooked six bonito and landed three. I offered to buy it. I would have paid more than $200. It came with reel, braid line and buzzbomb lure.
He said “keep it”. It is a treasured fishing rig of mine and I use it in his memory.

As the Turks would say, “may he rest in light”.

Sorry for sidetrack, but I cannot forget his kindness.
