Off the Hook Yacht Sales Results

On Friday the Off the Hook team of six started around 7 am and headed about two miles from the beach where they caught their first King Mackerel at 22lbs. The next location they went to was the Lighthouse rocks which weighed 19lbs. 

On their second day fishing, the winds were gusting to 35 knots and steady to 20 knots. They checked out about 7:45 am and found bait around 9 am. The Nor-tech took them about three miles from the beach where they got their third King Mackerel weighing in 18lbs. Regardless if we did not win the event, the boat performed perfectly and on both days the crew had a great time. They can’t wait to participate again next year!
