That's right folks, love him or hate him, he's coming back to fish the Garibaldi leg of the Oregon Tuna Classic!

Tred has been a strong supporter of the Oregon Tuna Classic and he hopes you will join him in making this our best year ever!

We'll be filming a show on the Secret Island with a distinguished member of the Oregon Disabled Veterans Association and our very own, Tuna Time! The show will focus on late-season light tackle techniques and the fact that disabilities don't have to keep anyone off the water!

If you've ever wanted to meet Tred, here's your chance! He'll be speaking at the Captain's meeting on Friday night as well as the banquet on Saturday evening.

Garibaldi is hosting the final leg of the Oregon Tuna Classic on August 28, 2010.

Why would anyone hate Tred? That man has no "quit" in him. Just read an article saying neighbors have rigged a cherry-picker type apparatus so he can be strapped in the saddle of his favorite horse. He's still scheduling hunting trips even though he has to deal with a colostomy bag and catheter. Tred is "The Man".

    That's awesome!! I just got done reading the article in Sport fishing Mag where he hit his throttle when pulling into the driveway and ended up crashing into his newly remodelled room!! Pretty funny guy. And cops pulled him over to let him know his urine bag was hangin out the door while he was driving down the road....

    Give props to his wife! He seems like a stand up guy!!

    That's great news, Bud! Tred is an incredible individual. Hope I can make it down to meet him and fish the Garibaldi OTC.

    Highly recommend reading his book: "The best and worse of Tred Barta".

    Great read!

    X5. He explains in his book, the concept of "spilling the inboard wake" upon initial hookup in order to get multiple bites. THe only difference was....he was doing this with the WOLFPACK (fatty bigeyes). We're just doing it with albies., but it is the same concept. It was what he showd Bud and Dick in the last show they did in Garibaldi. That's a great episode, too.

    AGAIN...GREAT NEWS BUD!
