I'm saddened to report the loss of Captain Mel Berman, who was a staple of the Tampa Bay area fishing community. I can distinctly remember taking The Boy fishing early on a Saturday morning and listening to Captain Mel's radio show. His golden voice and calm demeanor made you feel as if he were only talking to you. He always returned e-mails asking what are the best lures to use, ect. His website and forum are chock full of info about fishing all aspects of the Bay area.
He will be sorely missed.
He was 81.
