PAGE TEN THE CATALINA FISH AND FISHING (Continued from Page 6, Column 2) will add to his already wonderful achievements in light tackle records. The average weight of the fish be- ing taken now will give Mr. Jump an opportunity to spring another sensa- tion in the angling world. W. W. Comstock, and a couple of friends were out fishing on the Ethel, with Captain Harry Warner, Saturday. Mr. Comstock landed a 114 pound tuna about 8 o'clock at night, and it was so rough that they landed at San Pedro. The Ethel arrived at Avalon about 9 o'clock Sunday morning with the button tuna. GETS BUTTON TUNA Mr. Tod Ford, of Pasadena, and co- owner with his brother of the delight- ful motor-cruiser "Minx," is very hap- py these days! The reason is that on the 5th of June he got his Blue Button tuna of 102 pounds, fishing from the Mable F. with Major Lawrence Mott. On the 7th, Mr. A. S. McNeal had a terrific battle of more than four hours with a tuna of 105 pounds, also with Major Mort. It was not hooked until late in the afternoon, and (as subse- quent events proved) was foul hooked under the stomach, so that the rods- man had practically no control over the fish. It was finally brought to gaff by the light of an electric torch, some twenty miles east-southeast of Avalon--a very dark night with a rough sea running. The Mabel F. did not make port until nearly I1 p. Ill. TO PROTECT SALMON President Coolidge last Friday, June 6th signed the bill to establish fishing reserves in Alaska and to effect other measures to conserve the sahnon fish- eries of tile Territory. Halibut fishing in the North Pacific ocean would be .prohibited each year between November 16th and February 15th, inclusive, under a Senate bill passed last Friday by the House. It is designed to protect the spaw.ning season in the territorial waters of Can- ' ada and,the United States, as designed by treaty. CATAL I NA By R. G. Miller Isle of beauty, thou art singing To my heart a song of peace; To my weary thoughts you're bringing Hopes of rest from toil, release From the fears, and strife, and bondage That each day its labor brings; $o, to you I'll soon be flying On swift "Avalon's" white wings. There I'll drown my hea.vy burdens In your waters, clear and deep, And my careworn brow you'll cool me With the breezes that sweep Your fair shores, while stars Their vigils keep. "Can you give me a litCe bait?" asked the enthusiastic angler. "No," replied the old-timer. "But if you are hungry I can give you a tuna sandwich." HOTEL ST.
