One of my favorite LR stories ever. Curt was fishing a 50TW with 80# mono. He was lighting a cigarette up in the bow when the super ate the Cabillito.

Curt never knew he got bit.

The fish surfaced in the stern where LoPreste gaffed it first then all hell broke loose. Forgot how many gaffs they put in it.

Curt telling the story with a couple of Crown Royals in him is too funny.
Was the LoPreste or Bill Poole?

Another famous "curtism"

I got more ass than she has teeth.

He has been known to fish and get bit with his back facing the water.

He maybe the ultimate honey badger when it comes to LR fishing.
Another Curtism-while on our 8 day fishing vacation he would say “I need a vacation “!

I fished with Curt on my 8 day and he's not bad for a "short fat guy" as he calls himself. He's the one who inspired my 16 day on the Excel....50 days and counting by the way. I even had a hoodie made to mark the occasion...

Could write a book about fishing with Curt. I think he has like 8 over 300.

He was breaking hooks on big fish at the lower banks one year.

Every time he hooked a fish or Delores (His belly dancing wife) hooked a fish the hooks would break.

I asked him if he wanted some hooks since he got a bad batch.

His answer is classic Curt - "I got them at a flea market. They were cheap and bought them all which made them not so cheap - I havent got my moneys worth out of them yet".

He continued until the deck hands started tying his hooks on.
