Default Charlie Cinto

Mr.D. , My deepest condolences for the loss of your friend. I have read about him for what seems like eons now . I always thought how great it would be to fish with him or any other of the ?Old Guard ? , yourself obviously included. He sure sounded like a really great person. Would you care to share any thoughts on Mr. Cinto ? Best regards , Scott

Charley was a member of the Intrepid Striper Club in Franklin Mass in 1964. When I met him that year he was boat fishing from a surf launched boat in P-town and when he could get a charter was fishing the Cuttyhunk rips with the high liners of the day -- commonly Capt Sabatowski or the others, Haig, Smith, wherever an opening came up. It was with Sabatowski that Cinto caught that famed 73 pounder later years.

1964 was the year that I took my first 50-pound plus, a 52. When Cinto heard of it he was all over me in congratulations very impressed with a surf striper of that size. Having no idea of the magnitude of my accomplishment, it was the first inkling I had of what it really meant -- that a fifty in the surf is way more than a fifty in a boat. More tomorrow.

Thanks for putting that up Frank. It seems like there was a great deal of mutual respect between the both of you. Whenever I see a Goo Goo eye plug I think of Mr. Cinto and the famous picture of him with that monster and a trickle of blood on his nose with a huge smile underneath it. He definitely earned his giant fish. Shoulder to the wheel as you would say. Take care

There are a few guys around who were always devoted to striper fishing. There are some in every outdoor pursuit -- trout, salmon, deer, turkeys. These guys usually have put so much of their lives into those things that they eventually really become the cognisconty of the game. Cinto was that with stripers. And then there are those who try and really never get there.

An unanticipated consequence of ageing is that you see so many of your old friends move on. I won't have any friends left when it is my time. When I get to heaven, assuming God is willing to forgive me for all that action in the '51 Ford, Cinto will probably be jerking wire with Sabatowski at Cuttyhunk.

I was a regular contributor to On the Water back when that was published.

Sabatowski used to attend all the striper club dinners back in the day. He always looked for my wife Joyce because she was such a great dancer. There were times when I wanted to kill that sonovabitch. Maybe that is why, in my heart, I hate fricken boatmen.
