Gilmore Men Bring In Six Foot Sailfish While fishing aboard the charter boat Sea Raider out of Gulf Pier, Key West, Sun day, a six-foot seven-inch sail fish was caught by W. G. Rus sell. TM3c. The complete fishing par ty comprised C. R. Reagan, of the Sea Raider; A. H. Hoe flicker, TM3c; Russell; R. A. Mcßridge, TM2c; R. A. Gru well, TM3c, and Bill Kroll of the Sea Raider. All four Navy men are crew members of the USS H. W. Gilmore (AS-16). Reagan operated a navy recreation fishing boat out of NOB here during 1942 and 1943, at which time he was a shipfitter in the Navy. Kroll was a Navy magnetic com pass compensator with NOB Degaussing Section during the war. The spindlesnoot was hook ed by Russell on his first deepsea fishing trip. In ad • edition to the Gulf Stream gamester, a number of group er and barracuda were brought to gaff by Russell and the other fishermen. Mc- Bride says fishing the reefs and Stream is certainly dif ferent from catching grunts Off the stern of the USS Gil more. } Kroll and Reagan liked Key West fishing so well that in 1943 they decided to make the f Seat Raider their number one postwar project. In Oc- Reagan returned from the Pacific to resume ci vilian life and Kroll quit swinging ships out of NOB. The Sea Raider was immedi ately put into commission and has been busy ever since tak ing both naval personnel and tourists out where the big ones really strike.
