“I've been writing about Capt. Al's successes with great catches and tournament wins for years. After the HIBT announced that he was winner of the Boone Award for the most recent tournament, I resolved to beg my way aboard Topshape to see what all those high marks were about. (Richard Boone was a personal friend and wrote me just a few days before his passing.) After a great trip aboard Capt. Al's immaculate boat and an entertaining afternoon of swapping stories with Al and John, I decided that those perfect rating scores weren't really high enough! Thanks for a truly wonderful experience, Al and John.” Signed Jim Rizzuto - Author, Fisherman
