In the course of our, visit,-Sam m casually mentioned . that "for & good eating, I'll take'northern over walleye'any-day." I-looked close to see if Sam was wearing a 'hole in his head' but could find none. I guess there's just nb ' feet from snout to tail, I must admit I drooled with envy. Kenyon & Sailfish The story starts with the departure of a group of Al- gonans recently for a few weeks vacation in the balmy Southland, and io save reading time I'll say that the following well-known fishermen gathered at Pompano Beach, Florida: Harry Greenberg, Hex Taylor, Fred Kent, Sr., Ted Chrischilles, Craig Smith, our hero, Les Kenyon, a former Algona resident who is now a permanent Floridan, Dutch Lorenz. It was Dutch who arranged the details for the group's fishing excusion out into the Gulf Stream off the coast of Florida. * • • Atlantic. Sailfish n As Les described it io me: "I don't know why I did it, bur the first .'thing I* knew I wasjtandlirig the tackle. This fish was a long ways out in the tossing Atlantic, but the minute I grabbed that rod I knew that HE KNEW I was there... and I sure knew he was there. I sat there with the butt of that rod in a notch in the chair, and on one run of the fish the darned rod slipped' out. I didn't know it until I felt the line burning a groove across my wrist. I had a clutch reel, which let the line out automatically, and as I looked down at Ihe'reel I could see the line going out as fast as I was reeling in. Right then, I knew I had hold of a fish." Les had hold of an Atlantic Sailfish, which he successfully got into the boat, with some help from the mate. It's true that not many of us will perhaps ever tangle with a fish of this sort but just in case I looked up a few things about Sailfish. The world's record Sailfish, taken on April 25, 1950, off Walker Cay came to 1^3 pounds. While Les cud not have his officially weighed, clockside estimates placed it at between 55 and 65 pounds. It was well over seven feet in length, as the photo of Les and fish shows. According t o Kenyon, playing the giant fish was a real thrill- but landing Mr Sailfish in the launch was something else! again. accounting for the crazy whims of fishermen. • • * * * The Algona U.S. Post Office is another hot-bed of fishing fans, and right now as the boys "there tosS letters" - iftttt'03t)}feS 'they are dreaming of the fishing d'ay.5 ahead. Jack Dutto'n is one of the town's fishing experts, closely followed by Paul Watson, Dick Allen, and Whitey Voigt. Harold Lampright also generally gets his limit. I have not talked- with the Postmaster to determine his piscatorial proficiency, but assume that he, too, knows his way around in a boat.

They show no indication of flowering yet but will later I'm sure.
