Reel Passion leaped to the top of the Governor's Cup Series point standings by putting on a billfish release clinic at the 2011 Bohicket Marina Billfish Invitational. The meatfish bite was slow except for a very nice 73.8-pound wahoo caught by Stokely Holder on Thursday. The twenty-one boat fleet made the initial event in the Gov. Cup Series a big success due to their enthusiasm and participation.

Cup fleet arrival for their flurry of work to begin; Blake Pearce grabbed the rod and called out Get the gaff! Then somehow this 9.6-pound skipjack came to the surface. He may have thought that the tale of this epic fish interaction would diminish the next day - but.... welcome to the Lowcountry Outdoors!!
Special SHOUT OUT to blog follower Greg Garner for questioning me about the lack of Governor's Cup blogging on Thursday and Friday this week. In fact, my blogger software crashed for those days and after some high level talks with the CEO of Google I was able to restore and then continue blog coverage. I'm sure blog follower Angel Brown had some concerns as well... and Thanks to all those who keep me straight!
