And on a personal note, it has been an honor and a pleasure previewing these upcoming tournaments. Thanks to our sponsors, Get Vicious Fishing, Native Eyewear, Hanes and Rick Roth at Mirror Image T-shirts in Rhode Island and Sunology Sunscreen, these fish have meant more to me than any I can remember. The support from the fishing community, from Oklahoma down to Florida up to South Carolina, has been overwhelming, and this trip is one I’ll remember forever. And to all of you that took the time to read, watch, get on the water, stop to talk, purchase a T-shirt or even hit ‘Like’ on social media, your help on this venture is one I’m eternally grateful for. The fish were fun, and I’ll make every effort to stay in touch with those of you I had the chance to meet, but the dollars we were able to raise for The Melanoma Research Foundation, that’s the part of this project that I’m most proud of and grateful for.
