Key West Was The Place To Be!

Viking Yacht owners all joined in on the fun in beginning Wednesday April 8th in Key West. It all kicked off with the Captains meeting at Dante’s Tiki Bar.

Fishing began on Thursday with lines-in at 8:30am. BULLDOG weighed in a 22.4 lb dolphin, NIMROD a 21.1 lb and 25.2 lb tuna and REEL EPIDEMICH released 3 sailfish while RISE UP and CAJUN DANCER were right on their tails with 2 sailfish releases each.

All that fishing worked up an apatite for everyone. It was off to the Buffet party at Dante’s Tiki bar.

Friday was a layday with a pool party, cookout and drinks. Laying by the pool, catching up with ol’ friends and listening to some good music. The day couldn’t get any better! At 2pm the Kids Fishing Tournament began. They were so cute and excited to be catching some awesome fish. While the Kids Tournament was going on, some fierce teams grouped up for the scavenger hut throughout Key West. Pictures with the Sponge Monster, a coconut, candy necklace, business card from the scuba shop and a banana were only a few of many items on the list. But hurry because you had to be back at the boat with all your items at 4pm. A big congratulations to ZATARA for coming in Second place on the hunt!

That night it was docktail parties and cooking out the catch. Noting better then some fresh caught fried fish! After dinner, it was out on the town if you were daring enough.

Saturday morning began with lines-in at 8:30am. Weigh station closed and catch reports were due at 5:30pm. RAISE UP caught a 16.8 lb Kingfish and released 3 more sails. REAL EPIDEMICH caught a 10.9 lb Kingfish and also released 3 more sails. BULLDOG weighed in a 13.4 lb tuna. CAJUN DANCER had a great day with 3 tunas; the biggest weighing in at 21.7 lb, two Kingfish; the biggest 17.8 lb and released 2 sails. NIMROD also had an awesome day with 4.3 lb dolphin and 4 sailfish. MDALA jumped on the scoreboard with three sailfish.

Later that evening it was cocktails at the Westin Pier overlooking the water and sunset. Fishing stories were shared but the photo slideshow shared the truth. Haha. Live music and awards dinner wrapped up a wonderful trip.
