COMPARING NOTES: Capt Jeff Wilson, “Socks” – crewman on the Booby Trap out of Surfside Texas.
Capt. Jeff just bought some Tackey Wax rigging floss from the Depot. In talking with him, we found out it is a small world after all. Capt. Jeff fishing out of Haulover, and I, out of Palm Beach, both fished the first ever Bacardi Rum Invitational Blue Marlin Tournament out of the old Bimini Big game Club. We both were much younger of Course. His boat took second place. Our boss won the prize for being the tournament drunk all week. The last day of the tournament, our boss blew the big fish of the week, by free spooling an International 80 with a 600 lb+ blue marlin hooked up and screaming line. Those were fun days!
