    He insists on eating his fish. Not much left on 1.5 lb bonies if you trim out that bloodline. And we tell him to eat around it!

    Captain Donnie Brockman

    Has his hands in almost every aspect of the fishing business and has helped revolutionized the fishing industry in Southern California.

    I know there are those that aren’t big fans but looking back on my time working for him and those that have workied for him. They are some of the best in the business.

    He is a big, dirty old man but is a local legend.

    I know, I’m ready for the hate

    Dave Hanson, just ask him.

    Then there's that BD guy Ali running around the world spending my membership fees making moves with the Florida guy.

    Gone for 25 years, so not sure if its modern times or not, but with a rod & reel in his hands, it was tough to beat Don McAdam.

    Modern times and no mention of Duane Mellor?
    I’d second Todd Mansur, he’s a wealth of knowledge.

    Gary Abbamonte. Captain of the Alexes. He fished harder than any of these short time Parker guys. I think at his peak he could kill 3 packs of Reds a day. Few have more knowledge of the local waters, currents, tides. 30 plus years of anger at fish made him a force of nature on the Offshore grounds. Gary has sold his boat and moved on to another career but his presence will always be felt at the bait receiver, and Pacers.

    Ahh yes the anger. I’m still amazed he stuck it out as long as he did.
