My longest-term childhood friend was Brad Kloepfer, and we were neighbors and buddies since 1962. We played GI Joes together, ding dong ditched together, fished and went boating on our parents’ boats, raised hell together, and became police officers together. But sadly, in the year 2018 all that ended when Brad and his wife Connie

My wife and I and a brother from church went on an adventurous lunch excursion to the Santa Catalina Islands. Since my wife does not want to be on social media, I did not video most of our trip. Sadly, while enroute we struck a large object. By the time we turned the boat around,
If there are no small craft advisories next week, and the marine weather is reasonable, a brother from church and I will be going to the Santa Catalina Islands. We’ll be going to enjoy a nice meal and talk about a possible prolific ministry endeavor. Who knows, we might even put a pole in the
This clip is from a trip last month. Christians are not supposed to sin while evangelizing. Goes to show how we cannot keep the Law as Jesus did, and I’m so thankful for His substitutionary penal atonement. To read my Good News pamphlet click on this link.
While trolling the 14-mile bank last week a school of brown Dolphins swam around me. I later identified these as the Delphinus capensis which are a light brown, with a white breast. It is hard to tell if they are long or short-beaked. Since these are a rare sight for me, I got a little
On this beautiful Saturday, I went 28 nautical miles out to sea, which placed me about 3 miles southwest of the Santa Catalina Islands. Before this trip, I topped off my fuel tank, and by 0415 I was launched. While trolling in the dark from the back bay launching ramp through the Newport Harbor, I
This video depicts some excellent underwater footage of Ichthyology as to how Bass bite differently with various lures and techniques. I appreciate that this fellow (TacticalBassin) doesn’t find it necessary to curse like a gangster, which makes it a pleasure to like his video, and to share elsewhere.

Though my approach was off, you’d think with their overpriced $37.00 entrance fee, they would at least install proper protection around their outhouse platforms. Now I know why some have told me they refuse to use their outhouses. The question is, are they throwing their bottled urine in the trash, or pouring it into the
I bought this Savage Gear 3D Line-Thru Roach lure thinking it was ready to go into the water. But after opening the package and researching the Savage Gear website, and watching some of their professionally done videos, I realized I was about to learn something new; and so I am grateful for this new learning
Using Digital Nautical Charts (or charting) is not necessary on short trips, but it’s fun. This is what our vessel looks like while enroute to the 14 Mile Bank. We cruised from 30 to 40 knots, but here we slowed down anticipating some trolling at the shallow portion of the mountain range beneath us. However,
This snapshot is from a video of brother Nathan landing a nice Calico Bass onto the boat. We caught three Calico that day, and even enjoyed a double hook up together. This was while coming back to the mainland from the infamous 14 Mile Bank next to the Santa Catalina Islands.
I’m going to go out on a limb with this public statement. Naturally, I will be hated and laughed at by the unregenerate world. But unnaturally, this will be rejected by many who profess to be born-again Christians. Nonetheless, I am seeing an increase in female anglers that believe it’s necessary to sexually exploit themselves
