Last week, the Hell’s Bay crew packed up the trucks and headed west to one of the most beautiful spots in Florida for the 2018 Hell’s Bay Boatworks Professional Guide Rendezvous. Our destination was Florida Outdoor Experience in Chiefland — the perfect location for this year’s event, provided courtesy of our hosts and HB Professional Guides Capt. Gray Drummond and Capt. Lacey Kelly.
The day started out with some fine Cuban sandwiches, beverages and an introduction to our 2018 plans here at Hell’s Bay. Capt. Mike Holliday from Costa Sunglasses joined us and showcased all of their new products for 2018. A special thank you goes out to Costa for all the years of support at our Guide Rendezvous.
The “Guide Games” were next on the agenda, and this year was a blast. Fly fishing for bass and shooting clay targets — how can you beat that? Everyone had a great time, and there were lots of laughs!
We finished up the day with a Lowcountry boil by Capt. Chris Wittman and Capt. Daniel Andrews with Captains for Clean Water under the live oaks!
We would like to thank all of our HB Professional guides who attended this event, and a special thanks to Capt. Gray and Capt. Lacey for hosting us! We are already looking forward to 2019!
