    I have met Steve and I don't think that it is him. I think they got the wrong guy on adn. I bet that Steve knows him. All those white, bearded guys know each other.

    Yep, there's a thread on this in the saltwater fishing forum. That's not Steve - they got the pictures mixed up and printed one of his friend instead.

    Spoiled one is right, there's something about all those white, bearded guys. They all know each other.

    Glad to see Steve getting some credit for his experience. The article's a good piece.

    Yea, I thought there was something fishy about that picture-witticism intended. I showed it to my son at breakfast and he said,”that’s not Steve dad”.

    Its my buddy Bill who gets out on the boat with me once in awhile. The reporter asked if i had any pictures so i sent him a few, he asked me to name the guy with the white beard in the pictures so i assumed it was me, but he didn't say what picture they were going to use. Oh well at least they spelled my last name right and gave me some credit for the gear.
    If you look at the bottom of the article on the adn website there's some AH calling me a scumbag for building gear and selling it to folks, he says i'm enabling people to rape the resources of the state and all i'm in it for is the money. I guess you can't fix stupid!

    One of my favorite lines. I guess the only solution here is to tie that AH to a shrimp pot line, send him down about 500ft to see for himself if you are "raping the resource". If you need a hand just let me know.

    I thought you did a great job presenting the resource and its management and I for one appreciate your experience and knowledge.

    I wasn't sure if it was him or just a clever disguise, but I was thinking that I needed a new pair of cheaters! Come to think of it, that beard does look kinda short for Palmer........
