PAGE FOUR "' THE CATALINA 'eFHAT REMINDS ME" By "Three-Six" That reminds me--and, by the way, would it not be a good idea to start a department under this or similar heading, provided you can coax our anglers and boatmen to give us ac- counts of the little incidents that have happened to so many of us at various times during our fishing careers ? These very amusing and interesting events would certainly entertain your many readers. This thought occurs to me after reading Mr. Conn's letter. Don't revive the "Ananias Club," but simply ask that the story, so far as possible, be truthfully recorded, with perhaps a certain amount of elasticity if necessary to a fitting conclusion. But what I started out to say was that the loss of Mr. Conn's forty- pound yellowtail reminded me of the one I lost once at Silver Canyon. I will be modest and place the weight of my fish at about twenty pounds, and, in this connection, will also frankly state that it was not by any manner of means the only yellowtail I ever lost, either. But the peculiar thing about this particular yellowtail was that about three weeks later I again lost this sa~ne fish up at the Isthmus. I was spending that summer fishing with my own boat, had a few forty- pounders located at different points up along the coast, and generally used to find them at home on every trip I made that way. I came to the conclusion that the big ones always flocked by themselves, and that it was the schools of small yellowtail that traveled up and down the coast with the currents. However, to make sure, if possible, I got me a punch, making a circle of about one- half inch in diameter, and I spent sev- eral days down beyond Church Rock "punching" yellowtail--taking a bite out of the lower lobe of the tail. The captain would grasp the fish by the tail and then reach down and remove the hook and I would do the marking The fish were generally rather slow in recovering, although I was exceedingly careful in getting them up to the launch. I was indeed surprised and pleased to again take one of these fish, for I had only hoped that there might be a chance of one of the many launches getting one of them some day at some point, little dreaming that there was ever a chance of my doing so myself.

It's a new thrill-the taking of salt-water fish on artificial bait. And the Tarp.Oreno has taken most every kind of fighting salt-water fish. In the Coast-Oreno and King-Oreno sak-water anglers have b~its of a similar, erratic, wobbling, diving action to the Tarp.Oreno, just as strongly equipped, only of smaller size more suitable for the smaller species. These baits are recommended for Tarpon, Tuna, Swordfish, Amber Jack, Barracuda, Kingfish, Jack-fish, Grouper, Albacore, Channel Bass, Striped Bass, Bluefish, Weak-fish, Bonita, RobaUo and others, p 522 High Street South Bend, Ind.
