Beautiful weather greeted the boarding on the Captain Pete out of Freeport for the annual Kaamco Cargo Committee Fishing trip.
Looked forward by many cargo people and their lucky customers, this voyage did not disappoint.
Limited to less anglers this year to give more elbow room to the fishing crowd, the same spirit of camaraderie and fun was felt by all. Jayne Dietl organized the trip as in the past but this year Brian Cooley, new Cargo Committee Chair, and airport newbie Kaitlin Burden, committee lead, had the honor of handling all the logistics of food, selling raffle tickets and keeping everyone happy during the day’s trip.
Missing was long time cargo committee member Phil Jensen who was recovering from a horse accident but on hand were some cargo veterans, one of which travelled from Florida just to be part of this yearly event.
The event was fruitful with a lot more fish caught this year. Several nice size fluke, sea bass and porgies were hauled aboard by happy hookers.
Lots of great prizes by sponsors made the end of the day very enjoyable and left many looking ahead to next year’s trip. Brian Cooley gave a shout out to all the sponsors who helped make this trip a success.
