Very sad news that came in late this evening....

Just learned that my friend, and deckhand for many years Joe "Ponytail" Vitale passed on today. This saddens me. Joe had a big heart, & we killed a lot of fish together. Even though we grew apart recently, I will always remember you, and tell stories about the times we spent together. Fair winds, and a following seas Tail... You'll always be part of the KING COD family...

Joe was a life-long professional mate who worked out of Sheepshead Bay where I knew him from, right out to Greenport on Long Island and spent a number of years with Captain Joe of the KING COD.

Say a prayer for Joey who was a good guy at heart and loved working on the water.

God rest your soul Joey...
