Mann Knows Fish

I was cleaning up some computer files this week and came across this cool photo of legendary Carolina boatbuilder Paul Mann fishing for flounder. I shot this pic a few years back while I was testing his 65-footer called Poor Girl. I recall we were sitting dockside and waiting for the boat test gear to arrive, so while waiting Mann headed out to the cockpit of this slick behemoth battlewagon to try and catch himself some flounder. I believe that he may have caught a few fish before we had to get to work, but it just shows that even a well-known big-game billfish captain and boatbuilder still gets excited to wet a line of any kind.
