    Was hoping to be at Catalina today...

    I'm a Freedom Boat Club HB member and had a boat reserved today for a fishing trip to Catalina. Was going to search for yellowtail, bonito, and barracuda. Then fish in tight for calico's. It didn't happen. Freedom Boat Club didn't provide a key card, so I couldn't open the gate and get to...
