    Nice Job “On The Water” Kay was a treasure to the fishermen of the north shore and plum island specifically! Thank you for recognizing her.

    I have known Kay since I purchased 2 Penn reels thirty plus years ago. I still have those Penn’s. Any question I had she always knew the answer and the smile. What a lovely person.
    If there is anything that is priceless in life it is the people in your life and the friends you make. Kay is one of those special people that makes your life better even when it’s just a brief trip to the store for some bait or sinkers. She will be missed greatly.

    Kay will be missed by many but the knowledge she shared with many anglers will live on and continue to be shared and passed on.
    My condolences to the Moulton family.

    Back in the sixties and into the mid seventies, our group of surf men and women buggied up to Plum Island to Surfland. We had to speak with Kay before we hit the beach. We all counted on Kay for the SURF NEWS. Kay always greeted us with a smile and friendly advice.
    My condolences to her family.

    As a lubber from far Western Mass. I always felt a warm welcome going into Surfland. It’s a fair drive and i don’t get to make it often enough but when I next do it will be with fond memories of the Queen of Surfland.

    Such a nice lady. I remembered going to Surfland buying herring from her.

    Shortly after moving to MA I began surf fishing in June 1974. Kay gave me all the information I needed for fishing Plum Island and I landed my first good striper – 25#, which Kay photographed for me at Surfland.
    Condolences to the Moulton family.

    Shortly after moving to MA I began surf fishing in 1974. I stopped in at Surfland and Kay gave me all the information I needed to fish Plum Island and took my picture with my first good bass – 25#. I moved away in 1977 but remember well all the times I stopped at Surfland before fishing Plum Island.

    Condolences to the Moulton family.

    When I started strip bass fish some twenty years I always had to stop at Surfland for bait and any new lures I just had to have. Kay was always the friendly person behind the counter sharing her knowledge of the best place to fish. She will be missed by all fisherman
