Southpaw was fishing the Yellowfin Billfish Classic — a tournament out of Sarasota, Florida. "It was a 320-nautical-mile trek," Greg Quisenberry, part of the Southpaw crew, tells me. I'd seen them release a white earlier in the day. If they release this blue, they've slammed. I figure, once we transfer the fish over, they'll haul ass, set back out, catch another one, right? Wrong. Every single boat — not only Southpaw — helps us, then stops to watch the whole process. After we release the fish, a tremendous amount of hooting and hollering ensues: pure, unadulterated excitement. Whoo Dat, Sea Mixer, Conundrum, Team Supreme, Lolita, Mary P., Born2Run, and a host of other boats all contributed
a great deal of time and effort to help.
