Hello everyone,
I am new to your forum and have visited a vast majority of the postings here on this site to see what everyone had to say. I have also seen many beautiful photos of all your different Whalers.
I thought I would post an url to some of my fishing adventures and my 1978 Montauk that I have owned since 1988. For those of you interested in Montauks and/or Fishing, here is the url:
Check out the Fishing Adventures and Travel Cam.
Prior to 1988, I owned a 1966 13 ft. Whaler for 10 years. I live in a small 1 horse town and don't get to see many Whalers around here, just Cows...
I'm glad I found a site where I can view other Whalers and listen to their owners comments and suggestions.

Those are some great fishing shots. If I had to guess I'd say the ones on from Rogue River at taken around Gold's Beach? Nice looking Montauk btw.

Are you in Scott's Valley in the Santa Cruz mountains? I have some friends that live there.

Thanks for sharing and nice website!

Thanks for the reply Jack and Dave.
I live 20 miles from the Oregon border just west of Yreka, CA. in Scott Valley. I think I have heard of Scotts Valley before but have never been there.
I live appox. 3 1/2 hours from the Coastal borderline between Oregon and California. I try and get to the coast as many times as I can during the summer. Sometimes I lauch in Cresent City, CA. and sometimes either at Brookings, or Gold Beach, OR...... The rest of the time is spent going to lakes either here in CA or in OR... The only drawback from fishing both states is I have to buy 2 Fishing licenses and two Salmon/Steelhead cards...

Dave, I have been to your website.... Great site.... I was raised in Seal Beach, CA. and surfed almost every day from Junior High until I left there when I was 33...... Do you remember Dewey Weber Surfboards? Jacobs? Ole? Harbour?

Anyone interested in fishing around here or is just passing by, let me know if I can be of any help....

Thanks for the feedback Joe!

You weren't kidding then when you said it was a "one horse town". ;-) That area is truly Gods country with plenty fishing and hunting at your disposal. Wish I could boast the same. All I can claim is traffic, smog and some pretty good high speed car chases on the evening news! LOL.

Dewey Weber, Jacobs, and Harbor surfboards are all still going strong. Not sure about Ole? I am still surfing but not nearly as much as I used to. It's just too dang crowded down here anymore and I just turned 40 so I'd rather sip on a coldie after work then slug it out in the lineup with a bunch of aggravated 18 year olds. My how things change! I'm sure you can identify with me on that one?

Good fishing too you!!

whalersman - I rode my first wave at sunset beach (just south of Seal) on a Dewy Weber longboard. Thing must have been 11ft long and weighed 40 pounds. I've also owned a Harbor longboard, 9ft 1in, painted like a gersey mike cow. Rode it many times at Seal Beach inlet.

Hey Whalersman, Great pics of the local fishing spots. Hope to see you at the port ramp in Harbor, OR .
I'll be easy to find. I have a '75 Menemsha - not too many of these around here (or anywhere!).
Looking forward to some trophies like yours. I hear the albacore are going to be running close to shore - 10 to 15 miles (out by the lighthouse).

Acutally the first wave I tried to ride was in 1961 at Sunset Beach, CA. I had a long board, about 11 ft. and used it until 1970 when I bought a short board. I had the opportunity to surf Viet-Nam while I was there, so I did. Not many people can say that.... Actually, who would want to...

I will be looking for you with your Menemsha.... Sure can't mistake that boat for anything else. Like to see one in person.

Wild Turkey,
Thanks for the feedback and the welcome...
