BOTE paddlers and fishers, alike, have caught many fish off of their paddle boards, but none the size of Steve Dougherty’s, of Florida Sport Fishing Magazine, sailfish!
“While filming an episode of Florida Sport Fishing TV – JACKPOT! Monster sailfish crushed Steve’s gog along a nice color change in 120′ off Spanish River. Fish towed him out to 250′ before being released. The new season starts July 2012 on SunSports.”
BOTE is excited that Steve is utilizing his board to the fullest! From paddling, fishing, to surfing- That is what the BOTE board is all about! Can’t wait to see what Steve does (or catches!) next!
