THE STAR AND- HERAI


Charlie Hummer

Caught Big One

After 32 Years

Patience and Continuous
Fishing Got Sailfish
For Popular Angler
Last October Charles Hummer
sailed away after thirty-two years
service with The Panama CanaL
In addition to being the Wreck-
master for the Parnama Railroad and
Mechanical Division, he also was
an expert, experienced deep-sea
angler. He knew every wave in
Panama Bay. He saw coconut palms
planted on the Islands and watch-
ed them grow to maturity. He went
fishing as faithfully every Sunday
as he reported for work every week
day. Specimen of every kind of fish
that is found in Panama Bay were
brought to gaff on his boat, the
"Helen", but nary a sailfish.
That was one type of fish he
wanted to hook most of all, but
Charlie fished in vain. It got so
that his fellow fishing friends would
not go out with him for they con-
sidered Charlie a jinx.
Back and forth, over the hills
and. down into the valleys of the
occasionally rough waters he sail-
ed, and in spite of all the other
anglers bringing in countless sail-
-fish not one was the question ask-
ed. Was you there, Charlie?"
At last, some unknown force
brought a. sailfish to Charlie's bait,
and on June 16th this year Charlie
Hummer landed his first sailfish.
No other fisherman received as
many congratulations and one pal
of his considered his catch absolute
justice. And so it was. for no local
fisherman rated a sailfish more
than be.
Charlie is now up in Grand, Ra-
pids, Michigan, and when the snow
is in a drift 15 feet high by his
front window, and is too, cold for
him to venture out, he can sit
back in one of those chairs that
made that town famous and in re-
vrospect live again that date of
June 16, 1938, when Panama Bay
.gave him a sailfish. It certainly was
a gracious parting gesture to a
great man, friend and sportman, just
prior to his retirement.
As an anti-climax it might be
stated that on one of his trips the
"Helen" had three sailfish 'strikes
at the same time and there were
only three angler In the boat at the
time.
