Motorized boats open up new fishing grounds for Lupon villagers
MetadataShow full item record
Eighty-year old Leonardo R. Dabon has been a fisherman for the last 65 years, but this year marks the first time he will be putting out to sea in a motorized banca. "I started fishing in 1950 when I was just 15 years old," Mr. Dabon said in the vernacular as he was catching his breath after lifting the engine that he would soon be using for his boat. Mr. Dabon is excited about expanding his range which he considers an "adventure" after a life dependent in oars, known locally as bugsay.
