The Quest for the Crest

Rod & Gun member J.R. Adams and crew aboard his boat, Jolene, recently placed first in this challenging sailfish tournament’s first leg in Palm Beach. J.R. remarked that the first day was perfect with great conditions and they brought in 10 sails. The second day was calm and two were caught. Looking ahead two weeks, they are hoping to place again in the second part of the three-leg series.
