I'm sad today to hear this news about Jesus. Sad but hopeful! I've known him for 30 years..... and have seen so many great moments.... where he shared.... cared.... laughed and cried.with so many anglers. So many years of real "service". ... Real love for all of us.... Real sacrifice. He shared his great love and knowledge of all things fishing....."selflessly".

But his "karma" is strong. His friendship is lasting..... and so is my hope for this GREAT "teacher". Going out of his way to save your fish.... make you laugh.... show you the proper rig.... All with his warm sense of humor and reassuring smile. Brain surgeries are not cheap for the uninsured.

PLEASE... MY BD BROTHERS.....If you've ever had the joy of fishing with him.... spending time with him.... you know this is a worthwhile "chance" to say THANK YOU.... In your own private way.
Donations.... ARE REALLY NEEDED!!

Instead of that 1 extra jig.... that new reel.... donate to help this fishing "hero"!! Instead of that "eighteenth" new rod.....
Instead of that additional "scoop" of bait..
Instead of $100 for "whatever"......

DONATE to help this "teacher".... This "skipper".... This man who shared kind words and a smile with ALL he met.... He's battling for his life now.... and he needs your thoughtfulness. I know he would be embarassed.... by all this.... but time is running out. Go to the link above.... donate $10.... or whatever you can to show him we all care here on BD.
Prayers.... are always welcome for sure.

:notworthy
THANK YOU BROTHERS! "FULL CIRCLE"

A couple of shots of Jesus.. he is a great guy.. On those slow fishing days, he would always keep you laughing, with a joke, a story, or even a song.. (I was on a trip where he had the Abba song "Dancing Queen" in his head.. heard him singing it for day.

Such a great guy, I would not have landed half the big fish I have caught without his teachings to me. He wouldn't pull any punches, and I needed to be taught that way. Always happy, always able to make me chuckle or belly laugh.
I had the pleasure of fishing with him, and working with him. Ether way, awesome dude.
Once on a trip together, angler catches a sheephead, asks "Are these any good?"
Jesus responds: "Do you like lobster?"
Angler: "YEAH!"
Jesus: "Doesn't taste anything like em!" :D

Then, I don't know what my buddy did, but Jesus called him out on it, said it's a halfday move; So, my buddy has been Halfday ever since then! He is a very good fisherman, but it was just a funny moment and it stuck.

Hopefully the GoFundMe can get enough to help him get the treatment he needs. He really is a great guy, hope to fish with him again.

I'm late to the game and just saw this.

I went to the GoFundMe page and was set to donate when but they require my email address. I'm sick of getting junk email; can anyone who has donated on GoFundMe tell me if I will receive junk email?

I am happy to donate using another method to avoid getting junk email.

TIA.

Brad, I’ve donated on GoFundMe several times and have gotten a confirmation, then a follow up email telling me if I share the link it’ll increase the donations. Nothing after that.

I donated.... got the confirmation and "pass it on email"..... so far.... nothing else.

Jesus... is truly in need. If you guys think they get "great" health care benefits on the LR fleet.... your sadly mistaken. The cost of his surgeries is over $100,000.

Help if you can...Please.

Night before we made plans to wake up before pre dawn to catch the Alijos perfect tuna candy bait. About 30 minutes later hooked a 112# gill gutted at first gray. Good idea, thanks

Spot of fish popped up outside of the Clarion biosphere. We both grabbed the 10 footers with 7xs. My buddy's rod that I grabbed (closest long rod to me which had a owner treble on the 7X that I ringed for him :D) the Newell drags fried so the spool had to be hand gripped. I should had grabbed my 10 footer with the drag upgrades LOL But Jesus owned me LOL look at his pulling strength. That is how to shut down a 10 footer. Take a look. Shut down the 10 footer.

76lb was trying for the 100lb skip jig 10 foot rod club. Owner treble worked as planed. Hooked the fish in the cheek. Caught looking, scarry sharp hooks

Really a genuinely great dude. Have spent 43 days on the boat with him. Nothing but awesome and full of great advice. Want to land what you hook on the long rod, fish blue izor. Back then

Wishing the best and a speedy recovery

I was on that trip. Your buddy (and mine) leaned his rod against the bait tank and Jesus was on the tank. He asked who’s rod it was and said it was a half day move. The name stuck.
And yes Jesus is a great guy.
