"There is a lot of good fishing coming our way this season. And, due to the Covid nightmare and hysterical fear mongering by the media who are intent on destroying America's morale, there is plenty of space on upcoming voyages. If you are healthy, have no serious underlying health conditions, and like the idea of fishing on Royal Star with significantly lighter angler loads the current climate is perfect for you. If you are among any higher risk group and choose to sit this year out we fully understand and support your position. There will be plenty more fishing available in years to come. We will be here for you!

Rest assured that we are doing everything possible to provide Royal Star guests with a safe platform to enjoy their fishing vacations outside in the fresh, revitalizing ocean air. Let's go fishing! "

I listened to Brian Simms on "Let's Talk Hook Up" this morning and I believe to Royal Star is one of the best prepared boats for coping with the Virus and their passengers.

High school graduation, 1996. 8 day RS to Alijos, spent July 4th out there. Wahoo score. The first great fisherman that (I realized) I was fishing side by side with, flyline. Was Tim. That was 24 years ago. Beyond bad ass now

Sounds like some really good fishing is coming our way-sweet!

If you are healthy and are OK with going on a long range boat and can afford the ticket, this sounds like a chance to have light loads and good fishing, something that does not always go together.

This fucking post was headed straight to the shitter in the opening quote. In bold: “hysterical fear mongering by the media who are intent on destroying America’s morale...”

opening salvo a political statement, why would you be surprised?

that is not, IMHO, a political statement. I guess it could be considered as such if one were to support the media....but to me, it's just reality.

Tim is a true badass! mass hysteria over a flu that is only bad according to the fake news msm.
Phoenix is out of morgue space, and asked FEMA for trailers. Helluva flu, but it will disappear with the summer heat, right?

I took it as a political statement. Why even say it? They are trying to recruit fisherman obviously. Why possibly alienate those that believe differently?

And, due to the Covid nightmare and hysterical fear mongering by the media who are intent on destroying America's morale,

Whether you agree or disagree, in today's climate of course that's a political statement.

Its also completely unneeded in the sense that if it were removed from the paragraph, there would be no loss whatsoever of the information that needs to be conveyed: there's great fishing and light loads, so come out and fish if you can.

The only reason to include the statement is provide Ekstrom's personal opinion..

HEY......ALL THAT CRAP HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ROYAL STAR TRIP..... OR CAPT ECKSTROM.....
With all due respect, Captain Ekstrom wrote, "And, due to the Covid nightmare and hysterical fear mongering by the media who are intent on destroying America's morale...." That sounds pretty political to me, although I suspect the boldfaced type was added to Captain Ekstrom's original message.

On the other hand, this is not political. It is a news report from Foxnews.com:

"A Texas hospital says a patient who was a healthy young man died from coronavirus after attending a “COVID” party.

The unidentified 30-year-old man died at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, according to the hospital’s top doctor, Jane Appleby.

“This is a party held by somebody diagnosed with the COVID virus, and the thought is people get together to see if the virus is real and if anyone gets infected,” Appleby said, NBC 4 San Antonio reported Friday.

“Just before the person died they looked at the nurse and they said, ‘I think I made a mistake. I thought it was a hoax but it's not,” she said, according to the station."
