refuses to die. IB should create a classics forum for threads like these that go dormant for a year + and then get revived.

The RUTH D with Johnny D and his brother, The Cookie Too, and the White Dove back in the day. Someone today that quietly goes about slaying the tuna every day is Nat and Derek of First Light Anglers.

I could listen for hours hearing stories from Mike Anderson on the old Bad Dog.

Sorry, just saw , so I'm making a fourth vote. Chris was the best cap around, and he didn't have to talk at all for people in the know to know it.

the last time I went out, August 5th off Chatham, we brought several cameras and a new camcorder, but they are bad luck to have. We saw whales anywhere from 8 miles away to be as close as hitting the boat. The cameras are bad luck whether fishing, surfing, or even hunting. We tried to make a video series on pheasant hunting with the guys from Goose Hummock in Orleans but shot 3 weeks of us walking around. The following week with out the camera, we got 2 each out of 4 people.
I recall American Sportsman had the US Olympic Hockey boys out there after winning the gold and if memory serves me correctly they had a few big fish caught during the episode

Default Capt. Leo Silva/ F.V. Striker

He was always catching monsters,way back to the " Baccardi Days " as he used to call them.

The guy was always helping someone out, I guess thats why he had so many friends there to help him out, when it came time to hoist a 600+ into his 20' seacraft back in the cc bay heyday.

Some guys will remember him as a hack, but I will say that he had some mojo on his boat, having crazy days, like catching 2 fish when some fresh hi-liners were 0 for 0.

He was happy to show me and other kids alot of his tricks, because he enjoyed doing so......... such as trying guts for bait when the fish are passing everything else bye.

Thats my 2 cent vote !!....... not that it means anything but memories.

I'm pretty sure .com is up there. He has been the hot boat and high hook for a few years running. And Capt. Mark and Phil on the Cannyon runner also know how to catch a Tuna or 2 I believe.

.com can't hold a candle to some of the boats mentioned. I still believe that the boat "Dawn" in its day was one of the best.

Default Honor M

Malcolm McClean and his old Carolina boat "Honor M"...He was a quiet unassuming guy, unlike most of us, who made a few fortunes, one of them inventing container shipping.
He loved to catch tuna and did....many of them. I caught my largest a 1065 (and the head was still on the concrete) on August 23, 1983 at Stellwagen Bank
Malcolm and his crew and son whose name escapes me we all class acts, and although there are many great tuna capts. out there now like Paul Stern, me, etc. Malcolm was in a class of his own. He did it professionally, expertly and best of all quietly. He had nothing to prove to anyone but himself.....
