Todd, a decorated Navy rescue swimmer and door gunner, fished on the 65-foot Hatteras, Bullwinkle, on the first day. After catching his first sailfish, the Bullwinkle crew jumped in the water with Todd to swim with his catch and filmed the experience so he could share it with his family upon return home. Todd says, "The fish was beautiful, the water was clear, and I shared a connection with this amazing creature in its own element – amazing!" Later, Todd presented Mike Winget, owner of the vessel, with a Challenge Coin, which is a small medallion emblazoned with a unit insignia. It is a military tradition and they are presented to the recipient for excellence and as a gesture of gratitude.
