There are good fishing seasons, and then there are great fishing seasons. With the majority of my free time spent this summer aboard different Viking Yachts wiring fish for clients and friends, I’m pleased to report, this year was a grrreat fishing season!
“Twisted Bills” – a 1998 47’ Viking Convertible with a cockpit designed for serious action – played host to family and friends on an amazing 3-day fishing tournament out in the Gulf. With a “hey, if we win that would be great,” attitude, “but if we don’t, that’s fine, too,” our team was relaxed and playful. Having fun while we cheered for our favorite college football teams on the satellite TV and eating well were our only real objectives. As luck would have it, the jokes were plentiful, laughs were many, the games were exciting, and well…cocktails were in abundance, too!
As for the fishing…the conditions were next to perfect – calm, blue skies and warm, but not overly hot weather. Are you ready for this? “Team Twisted Bills” took home the title to the first place Tuna catch. I guess having such a happy-go-lucky attitude was in our favor this year. I’m totally hooked and look forward to the next tournament season.
