GOOD MORNING ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I made it through another show season. I still have a voice and my feet still fit into my shoes. You wouldn’t think that standing arround for 8 to 10 hours talking about fishing with your friends for 5 days would be so tiring.
I must be getting old .
We had the drawing for the TIBURON & OKUMA promotions after the show and hear are the lucky winners
DUK-DO-LEE of Vista ca.
JOHN MICKLES of Oceanside ca.
BOBBY JOHNSON of El Centro ca.

Our good friend Harry Okuda stopped by the booth to say hello and reminisce about fishing, and to talk about the Make-A-Wish Tuna Challenge 2009.
The Tuna Challenge has raised over $1.5 million since 1994 for the Make-A Wish Foundation, which grants the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions.
The Big Game 90 is proud to be a sponsor of the Make-A-Wish Tuna Challenge again this year – it’s a great event for a wonderful cause. Check out the Tuna Challenge website to see how you can get involved.
And while you’re at the show stop by their booth to buy raffle tickets for a Tiagra 30 LRS 2 speed reel and a Defiance 220nt center console boat. Support a great cause and maybe get really lucky.
Harry also snapped this picture, which he posted over on Bloody Decks. Thanks Harry – now I don’t know if I’ll be allowed to go home…

Rumors of seabass at catalina were going around the show and some of the Long beach landings last week but the rumors were proven true when Capt. Ray on the Toronado reported catching 3 fish Sunday morning while sitting on a spot of fish that he had found on the sonar. Ray said that it was a ^^$%(&& spot of fish and if the (*^^&$seals had left them alone they might have made a real nice catch of seabass.
Well we are out of the water and will be putting in new generators as well as doing our yearly coastguard inspections.
Ray you will have a 3 week head start on us. Just enough time to get them rounded up for us. The Thunderbird was at Clemente Sunday and reported seeing large schools of yellows chasing bait but didn’t land any.
The BIG GAME will start the 2009 nine season with a couple of 2 day trips - A 976 tuna charter April 2 & 3, and we have an open party trip April 4 & 5.

Today is the last day of the Fred Hall Long Beach Show. Last chance to get in on the Show Special 50% discounts on selected trips that we told you about here first.
Also your last chance to get in on the Best Deal at the Show – those free multi-day trips on the Big Game 90 when you buy an Okuma reel at the show. You might have to look around to find one because they’ve been going fast, but there are still plenty of Okuma Tiburons, Cavallas and Solterras to be had from dealers at the show.
I’ve enjoyed talking to so many of you at the Long Beach show. First thing Monday morning we’ll have the Big Game 90 at the boatyard doing our yearly haulout & maintenance & getting geared up for the 2009 fishing season, so you won’t hear from me so much during the next couple of weeks.
Thanks to everybody who stopped by the booth to say Hi or to introduce a buddy or to claim your free fishing trips. I know I’ll be seeing some more of you guys today, and then we’ll be looking forward to the Del Mar Fred Hall show later this month, March 25 – 29.
We’ll have similar deals for the Del Mar Show, plus a little something extra we’re cooking up just for that show. Of course you’ll hear about it here first on Reports From The Bridge – so stay tuned.
