CAPT. JOSH:

Just thought I’d let you know that if you offered a poster of your “Marine fishes of Southwest Florida” centerfold from last week’s issue, I would buy it. It is a great piece of work, as always.

— Dave Sons

DAVE:

That’s an idea. I know a guy who can print those sorts of things. What should we put on the back side?

CAPT. JOSH:

It’s been a while since we last spoke, I hope you’re doing well. I believe the last time we were speaking about old school fishing lures which Mr. Sheepshead and I would regularly uses the catch bass in Venice. I’m writing today to compliment Capt. Van Hubbard. I follow his writings and find him to be straightforward, believable and enjoyable to read. Being a transplant Maryland guy, I really liked his column on blue crabs — not only the insight and facts as he presented, it but his feelings towards the fishermen and the fisheries that we all work so hard to protect. It’s my pleasure to read Capt. Van’s columns, a man who cares about people, family, our waters and the bounty from our Gulf.

— Marvin Lurie

MARVIN:

You’re not the only one who enjoys Capt. Van’s writings. According to our reader survey, his column is one of the most read in the magazine. Although he can be cantankerous, his lens of long experience makes his views valuable and gives him insights that others miss. In other words, I guess we’ll keep him.
