I had a lot of fond fishing memories with Bill on Harry Waples' boat called "My Pal" out of Long Beach Island. Bill never talked much, but he showed it with his skill. He was always "high hook" on each trip. He will be missed, and I will think of him whenever I am on LBI. I am proud to call him a good friend and a better fisherman.
