PELAGIC Pro Team Captain Brad Philipps Reaches Career Milestone!
PELAGIC PRO TEAM CAPTAIN BRAD PHILIPPS REACHES 30,000 BILLFISH RELEASES! We'd like to send out a huge congratulations to long-time Pro Team Captain Brad Philipps for this incredible achievement! We are extremely proud and honored to have you on TEAM PELAGIC and to be able to call you our friend!!!
Saturday, November 28th, 2015: Aboard his 40' Gamefishermen, DECISIVE, fishing out of Guatemalan Billfishing Adventures off the Pacific Coast of Guatemala, Capt. Brad Philipps RELEASED his 30,000th BILLFISH (Having logged over 1000 blue marlin releases, a couple hundred other combined species of marlin, a few swordfish and spearfish, and over 28,000 sailfish releases).
PER CAPT. BRAD: "A big thank you to all the anglers who have fished with me over the years; the industry pros and companies who have supported in helping with my career; the two best mates in the world - Kennedy Hernandez and Jhonny Garcia - together we have accumulated close to 7,000 combined fishing days off Guatemala alone; and, of course, my wonderful wife, Cindy, for all she does behind the scenes so I can keep fishing; and my little ones, Darren and Lyndsey, for making it all so worth while... "Well done to our anglers from Maryland - Karl Zierfuss, Bob Loughry, and Hank Draper - for sharing in the day. And, thank you for letting my 7-year-old son, Darren, catch the 30,000th fish!"
Hats off to you, Brad... To do what nobody has ever done before is something very special!
