You Have Got to be Kidding Me?

Hey Gang

Yet another great report from Steve Shimahara and Brandon the Fishing Machine. Hokie Smokes. The kid is having a great year.

Man. When I was Brandon's age, all I remember was getting into trouble at Saturday Japanese School for putting thumb tacks on the kids chairs in my class. I think I might have put one on the teachers chair and really got it..........

Wanted to let all the fellow fisherman know the season is not quite over yet. Just returned from a day and half this morning (Monday oct 8) fishing on Dave Ikeda`s boat the Endeavor approx. 60-70 miles nw of San Diego. David took us to the butterfly. Our count for the day was around 70 yftuna, 6 albacore, and 1 stripped marlin

For all the guys who have hung it up for the season - - - DON'T cuz there's No saying No to Brandon. Just way too much to explain but everyone including dad here was in awe watching and hearing him all day. On this day he did by far out fish everyone. Yes, a little on the smaller side but the fellow BSG Guys know Brandon and he did not quit. Good fishing or not he does show what fishing is all about and has fun weather hes catching or just being on the boat

Dad now has some leverage when school projects don't get done or chores cuz he is really hooked on this sport. The pictures tell it all guys and those of you have fished with him know he enjoys every bit of this hobby.........

Bob thanks for doing all the hard work on this website. A real good freind of mine wanted to drop you a line and say "Hi". Sanford Morita. He is one of Brandon's mentors, a friend, and fellow fisherman.


WUT?? Sanford Morita???? You got to be kidding me!!!!

Sanford and I go way back to the days of playing CYC Little League Baseball together for the Westside Dodgers. Scott Okamura's father Ed was our Coach, and the honorable Al Morita was our team sponsor/manager. Rancho Cienega Park and Hamilton High School was Home Turf.

Those were the days man. My Rice Burning 1971 Datsun 510......Earth Wind and Fire....Charlie's Angels.....Pop I better stop before this really gets embarrassing.......

Sanford is an outstanding individual to have as a friend on deck and mentor for Brandon. Next time you run into Sanford, please tell him I said Hello.

What a trip.....It really goes to show you we really do live in a small world

Thanks for the report Steve and Brandon
