I'm sorry to read that Bill has
drowned. I've been a longtime fan of the Stickmen and Bill was
always a favorite of mine.
As the freedive community adds
Bill's name to our "Wall" let us never forget that tomorrow
isn't promised to any of us. Treat every breath as if it may be
God bless you Mike and all the
Stickmen and may He sustain you through this hard time.
I wandered up on your page and am
definitely impressed. As an old sticker myself from way back, I
have heard of your groups exploits. My group of friends, Rick
Gomez, Leslie Stinson and others have taken our share of the
Gulf’s bounty by the Stick. I will have my friends also check
out your site.

the sport like this. Im new to it myself and have done prob
15-20 freedives in the Panama city area. Im a active military
member in the Air force and love the water. If you guys have any
info or stories to pass on to a new guy, Im all ears.

Hey Mike, just checking up

wondered if you were doing ok.Me and the wife are still doing
well.I get in some nice scuba diving when we go on our tropical
vacations.Dove the Blue Hole last April,Belize is awesome! Hope
you are doing well! If you ever plan on making it out to
Northern Calif. again let me know, would love to see you

and love to head to the Mendocino coast on small trips.

Blessey for dialing the wrong number and sharing your site with
The pictures are awesome. Just remember to be safe and
enjoy the good times with friends.
Your newest fan, Trish

Loved the site and associated links. Your fish
species have some similarities to ours in Australia, but different
names. Loved the stories and great photos. My
Spearfishing Club in Sydney is. www.stgeorgespearfishingclub.com so you can also see a few of our guys and photos.
Our new young gun "pup" Michael Takach is predominantly in many
photos, having bagged a number of big fish.....lucky duck.
He lives for diving, whilst most of us have to work for a
living. We have had a few legends of the sport in our club
over the years, so we have a lot of history there. Hope to get over to Mobile one day soon and check
out the diving scene. We pretty much dive offshore reefs,
with the big breath guys heading out to marker buoys etc. for
Dolphin fish and the odd Spanish Mackerel. If you are ever
in OZ, come and visit.
Cheers for now,

performing for our service
men and women who are KIAs. I pray we never need you for my

need you. Thank you for what you continue to do for our country

It was nice meeting you guys. Had a great time talking to you both. We would like to
come back down there and have you show
us the "ropes" on how
to do this. I like killing things, so this would be right up my
alley. Hope you
don't have anymore encounters with
sharks, bad for business. Be safe and thanks for putting our drunk asses
on the website.

Ashton, Wow! what fishermen you all are. I
still think the diving and spear fishing is dangerous, but why
should I feel any different since
I can not even swim! Have a good day- from your
"feisty little friend" at Dixie Drayage.
Mobile, Alabama - August 2, 2006
Mike, it was a pleasure meeting you last night at
the Alabama Open safety meeting. Enjoyed the stories and
knowledgeable information and look forward
to talking with you in the future. Hope we both have good luck and
calm seas in the tournament this weekend. Be safe.

Mike, thanks for the detailed story of your dive.
Congratulations on your win!! GO!! Free diving!! Nice
pictures also (except the head bump) Go Stickman!
P.S. It's a little quiet here, only a few big WSB 48#, some
YT's 30#. But June is right around the corner.
Los Angeles, California - May 19, 2006
It was great meeting you and your fellow Stickmen yesterday (5-6-06) at Tacky Jacks
during your weigh-in. It seems we stopped in for a
drink at just the right time. Thank you for the Amberjack and
flounder. We fried
some of it up last night and had a fish feast. Let us know when you
are back in the area. I would love to dive with you guys and
learn the art of stick

hope all those exotics are as good to eat as they are fun to stick. Catfish and Walleye

Hello!!! Wow you guys are crazy! But I like it!
Actually, I'm trying to hunt down Matt Rytting. He was in pilot

Mobile, Alabama - April 8, 2006
I've been reading your stories and looking at the pictures from your spearfishing adventures
and competitions and I think you would be
PERFECT on the next season of Survivor! I got your number and
email from your
friends at Underwater Works. I can't say too much in this email, but
I would love for you to get back to me as soon as you can. This is a
very classy adventure show on a major network, I promise you won't be disappointed!
Just shoot me a call or an email ASAP so we can at least talk about it. Shhh, this is super
top-secret. Don't tell anyone about this;
if you're serious
about this, and your name gets out in the press you can't do it.
Can't wait to hear from you!

We have to do
lots of diving before July because I'm supposed to be
leaving for the Peace Corps... but then again they're supposed to be

me and doing some diving there...

Love ya April
Mobile, Alabama - October 13, 2005
heard countless stories (most good ones) of you and your
diving experiences with my brother Rick Pinegar. I've met some of
his diving buddies in the past, and hope the future allows me to
meet you as well. You are a great group of guys. It is easy to see
why Rick is willing to endure the trauma of beach living when he has
friends like you! Thanks for sharing your great pictures with us and
the rest of the world on your website. We could only imagine what
was going on, but between phone conversations with Rick and now your
pictures, everything can be put in proper prospective. The
devastating events that have occurred can be greatly appreciated
when seen through your eyes (pictures). Thanks for allowing us to
see and thus understand the situation that Dauphin Island is facing.
I hope to be able to volunteer when the time is right!! Thanks
again, and keep up the good work! P.S. If you are ever in Memphis,
bring your camera and look me up! Your pictures are so professional.
I have 2 grandsons I would like you to photograph!
Memphis, Tennessee - September 13, 2005
Hi Mike: I am on the phone with the star of
your latest picture production. He is the one and only Rick
Pinegar, my wonderful brother. He called to tell me about the
website. The pictures are worthy of a magazine cover.
You did a beautiful job. Some of them brought tears to my
eyes, especially the one of Rick feeding the seagulls. This is
one of my favorite things to do with him. The picture is
remarkably good. Thank you for sharing these with all.
Look forward to meeting you on my next trip down there.

Dauphin Island, Alabama - Thursday, July 28, 2005
Congratulations on your big catch! A world record is something to
definitely be proud of! That was a big fish too! I hope everything
is going great for you and mom! Kenny made the All-Star team, so
they are going to be playing the All-Star games at Hank Aaron
Stadium. The dates are July 12, 13, & 14. His dad is coming in
town to stay at our house---pray for me! I would love for you and
mom to come to at least one game. It will be fun, you can watch
Kenny pitch and get to know his dad. We had some engagement pictures
made and I will have them back by then, so you and mom can pick out
which ones you want. Well, I gotta get back to work. Talk to

Hey Mike!! Keep doing what you do... You are truly

I love your detailed and
vivid description of your recent adventerous dives aboard

pictures, you've really given me a feeling of diving with
you in the mystic darkness and along the excitement of catching
these glorious fish.
Thanks for the feelings!
