FISHING BARGE FOR VENICE .Venice anglers are to enjoy the sport of fishing from a barge--much the same as many visitors to Catalina Is- land did last summer. The Venice Speedboat Company is backing the project. William Hall, manager of the company recently returned from San Francisco, where he purchased one'of the largest barges used by the United States Government during the war for loading boats at sea. The barge is be- ing towed to San Pedro, where it will be elaborately fitted out. Another deck will be added, an electric lighting and refrigerating system installed and a. cafe built, so that fishermen can have their catch cooked at once. The barge is 120 feet long and 32 feet wide. Speedy launches will carry anglers from the Venice piers to the anchored craft. "For Rent" and "For Sale" signs are on sale at Windle's News Stand. "THREE SIX" HOPS ON "LIGHT TACKLE" JUMP Los Angeles, Calif., February 15th, 1924. Editor Islander : I "but in," as Chas. Barton says, on this very interesting controversy, Why in thunderation did you put Jim Jump, with his monstrous big fish and 9- thread line, on the front page, just when we, in the same issue, were try- ing to decide whether to use the 24- or 39-thread line for the same purpose. Your monkey wrench has gone and gummed up the whole works. I am m favor of putting Jump off the Is- land, and far enough off so he can do no further harm. Mr. Potter says : "While your fish are altogether too big to land," nevertheless he advocates the Michaelis' reel and 24-thread "special." What is happy nleditun anyway? I ask to know. Respectfully, "THREE SIX." Editor's Note--"Thi-ee Six," we are surprised! You say: "I am in favor of putting Jump off the Island, and far enough off so he can do no further harm." "Three Six," you're jealous! Jimmy Jump does not catch his fish on Catalina Island. Your "logic" is most unreasonable. Yes, we did print his picture on the "front page" of our last issue. We had to. There was no other place to put it. Didn't yon no- tice that the paper was "full up?" Now, "Three Six," if you will go out and get a marlin swordfish on your kind of tackle, you'll "break Jump's heart." He's a determined sort of an angler and if you really want to drive him to Alaska, Siberia or Japan, just bring in a broadbill swordfish on "Three Six" tackle. That will not only throw a "monkey wrench" into the machinery, but it will make you the KING of the LIGHT-LIGHT TACKLERS. Everybofly in Avalon who knows Jump and the editor of this paper, knows that "we two" fight like two bull-dogs, and "Three Six," you can bet yourself a year's subscrip- tion to our great family journal that we are not putting his picture on the front page if we have got "something better to fill up the space." And, you ask, "What is a happy medium, any- way ?" There is no "medium" in "put- ring Jump off the Island." That would be a CLIMAX! If he ever finds out where you live--well, we are glad that neither of you live in Ava- lon. We'd have a "tackle case" sure! Jump only comes ashore to eat and sleep. He fishes outside of the "three mile limit." Anent the fishing tackle controversy, we have received an excellent letter front our good friend Win. Barber Haynes of Akron, Ohio, which will be published next week. Norman D. (Tony) Boeckel, of the Boston Nationals, was in an automo- bile accident near San Diego Friday, from the effects of which he died the following day.
