  1. Four days of fun, frolic and excitement it will be for sure. I always wanted to be a part of such an event/competition. Where you get to do what you love doing the most: fishing! Besides, you also get to meet and interact with many people, who like you, are in love with deep sea fishing.

    Networking, you see.

    Events such as deep sea fishing charters bring people from various places under one roof for few days. And at the end of the competition, there is of course one winner. But there are lots of fond memories that you take home with you.
