Another ICAST in the books!
The show was well attended, and the demo Hell’s Bay Marquesa on display garnered lots of attention. The versatility of the Marquesa for shallow water sight fishing and beachside for tarpon is hard to beat. We talked with many anglers about this skiff and the complete line of Hell’s Bay skiffs.
One of the highlights of this year’s show was hosting a happy hour for the Herman Lucerne Memorial Foundation on Day 1. Members of the HLM Board of Directors shared their 2018 mission and commitment to supporting clean-water initiatives in the state of Florida.
Captains for Clean Water was also on hand to discuss the current clean-water fight and its progress. Hell’s Bay Boatworks is committed to supporting the efforts of both of these nonprofit organizations, and we are encouraged by the successes they’ve seen so far this year.
HB Pro Staff members Flip Pallot, Chico Fernandez and Capt. C.A. Richardson joined us throughout the show. These legendary anglers shook a lot of hands and were available for several photos. It is always a pleasure to spend time with these gentlemen and to hear their many fishing stories.
We would like to thank all of our professional guides for stopping by to see us and for sharing their passion for Hell’s Bay and clean water. A special thanks to Capt. Buddy Kirkhart and New Wave Taxidermy for lending us the beautiful tarpon mount for our booth.
ICAST 2018 was a huge success for Team Hell’s Bay, and we will be back in 2019 for sure.
Fight for clean water and good fishing!
