On Sunday, May 17, 2015 InTheBite presented the first ever Gulf Coast Captain of the Year Cup award to Houma, Louisiana Done Deal’s Captain Jason Buck. The trophy was presented during the awards ceremony of the 2015 Orange Beach Billfish Classic in Alabama which took place May 14-17, 2015. Being the first tournament of the Gulf Coast Billfish season it was fitting to hand out 2014’s Captain of the Year trophy and wish everyone good luck for 2015. “Tournament Director Johnny Dorland and the entire Orange Beach Billfish Classic staff were very accommodating to allow InTheBite to present the prestigious award during the conclusion of the Orange Beach Billfish Classic event. The participants and crews were all top notch and provided great support of the award and I look forward to returning in 2016,”says Publisher Dale Wills.
Done Deal’s Jason Buck was honored to be a part of the prestigious class of captains who have received the award in the past. Captain Jason Buck has been a top contender in the Gulf tournament circuit for the past three years. The Done Deal operates two sportfishing boats: one is located in Costa Rica at the Los Suenos Marina and the newest 70-foot Viking is fishing the Gulf circuit.
In attendance for the award were several friends of Captain Jason Buck, including his wife, parents and friends of the family. Look for the Done Deal crew to be a top contender in 2015. Please use #inthebite and #captoftheyear to congratulate Captain Buck and his crew on social media.
