Yes I remember those years. I ran the New Salty Dog every day for owner Sid Moore out of Virg's. Some great fishing. We had 2 - 500 albacore days during those years. Those were fish 20 to 40 lbs. A buddy of mine, Howie Clark, was running the El Dorado. Kenny and Roger Hess were there with the Toronado and Dick Helgren with Electra. Jon Sato was running the Marauder out of Avila. The New Salty Dog was a great riding and fishing boat. Believe we were the first sport fishing boat with scanning sonor. We did have to deal with the weather at times. But, I can also remember some good weather days. Regardless, the albacore usually bit. And at times it was some unbelievable fishing. The very late season fish were big, sometimes 60 - 70 lbs. But, we seldom caught many of those. Good times, people and memories.
