This month’s winner is Robert Maroni of Portand, Orgeon. He will receive his choice of Costa sunglasses! You can win the next pair by entering your own photos! “This fish was caught north of Malindi off the coast of Kenya, just south of the Somali border in October, 2011, when Somali pirates were kidnapping tourists off the beaches of Kenya. We fished the first day with a large Kenyan military patrol boat in view, which was looking for pirates. The second day, we were boarded by the same Kenyan Navy and told they had apprehended pirates in the same area the day before. This fish was one of three to four sails we landed on the two day trip, along with lots of tuna, dorado, and one large wahoo.” – Rob
