How Cold is it?...

.

As soon as the 12 degree air hit my face this morning at 5:30am while in the dark and on my way to work, memory recall kicked in and thoughts of a Sailfish Tournament in Key West this past April came into focus...

I had the opportunity to work the World Sailfish Championship Tournament this past April where over 335 Sailfish were caught and released in three days of fishing...



Istiophorus platypterus is the scientific name for the Atlantic Sailfish...


Several of the Top-placing boats in the tournament...


Favorite "Watering-hole" of a frequent visitor to RightsideVA....


Visitors to one of the many tournament events...



You need to be a Tournament fisherman to understand and appreciate this ...

This tournament is a "Catch & Release" only format...


Again, you need to be a tournament fisherman in Key West to appreciate this one...

Rightside:

haven't got on lately. Is Norman Schwarzkopf holding the flag you always carry for pictures?
