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.

That's before the 80's, He owned 22nd street Landing in the in the 70's. Paulas and Neil were (owner/Operators) running the Sharpshooter in San Pedro and Redondo in the 80's.
In the 1960s it was called Skippers Twenty Second Street Landing because 3 skippers own it. Frank Hall was one of them. Before that it was call Joe Martin’s Twenty Second Street Landing back in the 1950s.

Sucks to be old enough to remember this stuff!

    Fisherman's headquarters Encinitas, 80s. Parent ride. Fishing crawlers on 2# in golf courses. Only tackle shop in the area and the owner was nice with me and showed me scared squid 6x Jr first time in. Seems that bobs bait and tackle opened up down the road. Which split the pizza into 2. And both went out of business.

    I'm not sure who the owner was but that's where I got all my 1st gear. Curly hair.

    Polly's restaurant on the Redondo pier. Great Burgers, great breakfasts. Back when the sportboats loaded and unloaded on the pier.

    Pat Conklin captain of the Reel Special out of Redondo. (And earlier than that, he was a deckhand on the Pursuit also out of Redondo.) I think he may have run the boat that ran back and forth between the pier and the barge, but that was in the early 70s I think.)

    [Yeah, when I had money, I fished out of Redondo quite a bit. Problem was, I often didn't have money. LOL]

    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.
    You grow up in Redondo? If so no doubt we crossed paths many times in the 70s.

    Jim Hall on the Sunbeam, Strong, then Jim running the bait barge. Hap Jacobs running the Shell Fuel dock. Dewey Weber in his inflatable. Henry Galley the Thresher king.
