The above pic was taken back in in 1980 on a trip to Coxes Ledge back on my fathers boat "Connie K", named after my grandfather Connie Kafalas, a Greek fisherman from the old school....boy did we kill some Cod on that boat. Still fish many of those same drops today...just wish I was that skinny...and check out that funky haircut, yup mom used to put the old wooden salad bowl on my head and have at it. How embarrassing....no wonder why I loved fishing so much, certainly wasn't going anywhere in the dating department with that dork "doo" back in the day...funny to look at this pic 36 years later!!! Have many old school pics from back in the day and will be sharing them here with all of you....boy what a treat, talk about giving up some ammunition for never ending deck jokes...have a feeling I am going to regret this but I don't give two shits and have come to a place in life where its good to laugh at myself every now and then...

So that's the update and check back in midweek to see if we can put something together for next weekend...have two already booked for Sunday Oct, 9th...so lets see how Matthew tracks and we will go from there....
