Did you charter the Pronto back in the day, the first year Alan bought it with Mike Diamond?

Is the real deal. Super humble his name should be way bigger. If I could hand pick my next trip. I would choose Jeff driving. Beach style and goes to show the internet. I thought he was more jock style which is fine. Really enjoy his vibe and taught me some tricks

He has aged a lot in the past 6 years. I have pictures with my son fishing on the Indy and he was running it. You see the above pic and compare it with the one with my Son and Jeff and you probably wouldn't even knew it was Jeff. I've known Jeff since the days he Worked on the City of Redondo in the late 70's/ early 80's. He is one hell of a fisherman and a Great Guy.

I did charter the boat but all starting around 1986. Epic trips with Alan and Brett! I acutally worked with alan in 1988.
My FIL had charters every other Fri in the summer/fall from the late 70’s to around the time you were there. There was a guy named Mel from the Longfin that helped with the Fri charters for awhile. I think Mark was on the deck around that time in the late 80’s

Bill Poole, made friends with his son Randy in the early 80's and met Bill a couple years later , he was a quite a guy... one of the true sportfishing legends.

I fished with Bill and Randy on the Cape Polaris. It was the boat's 1st run and we hit Guadalupe. Pre-YFT era. Heck, it was before the BFT were being caught at the south end in Tuna Alley. I fished it again a year or two later on a 10 day. Damn chubasco made a run to Alijos impossible.

I remember the Longfin group. Good bunch of guys. Mark did work on the boat along with John Barrett in that time frame.

Yes he was. That was the 70's though. IF...I recall accurately. :cool:
Pineapple as in Dave D.? He still runs the DD from time to time. Can’t think of anyone else named Dave still around.

Mike Gaskins from the AA and DD way back when, he used to work on it when Fred Huber was still a deckhand on it.
