The interest shown in fishing on this website has resulted in my setting a goal for the future with my shipmates. I have always been a goal oriented person and I have several goals in life. Add to those goals the following: I Resolve to organize a Seattle Salmon Derby for my shipmates.

While traveling in the Canadian Maritime Provinces after the 2003 Buffalo, NY Reunion, I learned that the Atlantic fishery is all but devoid of "wild salmon" and that most commercial salmon sold in the eastern US are farm fish.

Scuttlebutt has it that a team of hosts is forming and Seattle, WA will be proposed as a site for the 2007 USS Basilone Reunion host city. If the crew votes to hold their reunion in Seattle, I will organize a salmon derby to give all those interested a chance to experience "fish on " with a 30-70 pound wild Pacific King Salmon.

Now that's a goal worth planning for. Let me hear from you if this prospect sets you to dreaming........................................Jim
