Daniel Beachy, Hickory Furniture

Daniel Beachy Hickory furniture business located in Michigan it is alive and well. May 4th 07, I took the above picture of one of their Hickory Rocking Chairs at the "Kootenai Woodworks" warehouse in Rexford MT where they ship several truck loads each year. It is a very impressive hand crafted chair that anyone would be happy to own. I called Daniel who now lives in Wisconsin, it came out during our visit that his sons are very involved in the making of their Hickory furniture.

Larry Beachy's big catch.

Larry Beachy on the left, caught this 60 pound Rock Fish in the Atlantic, about six miles off the east coast of Elbow Cay, Abaco, Bahamas. Robert, man on the right, called Larry and said "we need you to help catch groupers tonight." Later on under a full moon Larry hooked into what the first mate said was a Shark, he was told to hang on until he cuts your line. This so called Shark turned out to be a 60 pound Rock Fish, the meat is worth a great deal of money, no gaff hook on this one it might damage the meat. Two men hoisted it on board by putting their hands in its gills. It wouldn't fit in the fish tub so they wedged it in a spot where it couldn't flop overboard. What nice catch to end the fishing trip with. Way to go Larry and Robert!

Robert Lowe is a native fisherman who dives for lobster and spears grouper, charters his 35 ft. Sport fisherman for Tuna, Dolphin, and Wahoo. He also hand lines for large groupers. He can be reached at Seagull Charters, Hopetown, Abaco, Bahamas.
