Default RIP Thumper

rest in peace Jack Mattice. you will be missed. I really loved your humor, wisdom and wit over the many years you graced Ifish. A class act in my book. So glad we could have you stay with us in alaska, and for all your generosity and support you gave me over the years.
God speed sir.

Default In shock-- Thumper :( :(

Just got this, and I'm just in shock.
Thumper... I can't say it. I love Thumper. (Jack). SO MUCH

I was going to post this on LIG, but this, darnit, IS fishing related, and so ifish related.

In my mail... More details to come from his son, Grass hopper. Look him up, if you don't want to miss his post. I sure don't.

Anyhow... In my mail, yesterday.

Sorry to hear that. Didn’t know him but I think I chatted with him on the river a time or two . He definitely wrote up some good pieces. I do searches a lot of old archived threads and he was on a lot of them. Tons of good solid material by Thumper!!!!

OH Boy! This is sad news. Anybody know if he had been sick? Long time member of Tillamook Anglers. At one time we had a gray hat that Jack loved. He would send me a note, SEND ME 6 OF THOSE HATS AND I WILL PAY DOUBLE THE PRICE. RIP my friend.

One of the original crowd here. Was one of the good ones. Helped a lotta folks (Me included) catch more fish.

Seen him often on the river.

He fished the Swirl for a while. Caught a ton of fish on prawns. Spring summer or fall, he had a prawn on. He quit that a few years ago. Dunno if he was tired of working so hard for fish, or if the lack of fish in the NF had tanked so bad it finally made him seek out other options. Anchor fished near him many times for URBs in the last few years.

If I remember right, he built boats for a while (Steenson?)

He was never afraid of hp. Seen him on the NFL years ago in a 16-18' flattie with a 200 on it. I think NASA made him register it with them.

Sorry for the family and friends.

I never met him, but by his participation here, he was very obviously a quality person. Always liked reading his posts, he will be missed.

Rest in peace

Jack owned Jetpace for a few years. The original Thumper boat was a 24’ center console boat with a big block. His son guided out of it for a few years if I remember right.

Great guy and sport fishing advocate. We will miss him trolling out on Catapilar this spring.

Very sorry to hear this. Fond memories of Jack on the Columbia and at Ifishstocks in years past.
Prayers for all affected by Jack's passing.
