So it happened in September of last year (2016) my dad and his friends were fishing on the backside of Catalina. They were all on big fish (yellowtail) and while they were fishing. None of them realized how much water was flowing into the boat as the waves hit the boat. And when my dad finally noticed it was too late, all of them jumped off trying to cling onto any debris. As the boat went down all of their gear sank to the bottom or got pushed by the current. After another boat picked them up the coast guard came and lifted the boat. Nothing was left, all the fishing gear was gone and all the electronics and engine were soaked with saltwater. It literally took a lifetime to get the gear they had. And it was all gone. And so I trying to raise some money to get my dad a new fishing setup for this summer.
