While the 222-foot (68m) Feadship M/Y Archimedes was at BAE Systems shipyard in Jacksonville for a short refit drydocking, shipyard superintendent Joseph Tooker took Capt. Chris Walsh and 2d Officer Davie King out for an after work fishing trip on the St. Johns River.

“I love fishing, and it just doesn’t get any better than showing a customer or visitor to the area what our waterways have to offer, right off the pier,” Tooker said. “To me, there’s no better way to de-stress from a busy shipyard day than to enjoy an evening on the river.”

The crew agreed.

“The fishing was spectacular,” Capt. Walsh said. “The individual fish, magnificent. They were great fighters, and are reported to be delicious, but we opted to return them to the river, gently slipping each of the 40-inch-plus fish back into the water.”
