In what seems like a an error of having a couple of extra zeros, Capt. Chris Sheeder truly did release his 20,000th billfish!
From the Casa Vieja Lodge:
“Casa Vieja Lodge’s Capt. Chris Sheeder yesterday reached one of the most significant milestones to date in his career aboard the Rum Line (40’ Gamefisherman), releasing his 20,000th billfish! He is one of only 3 Captain’s to every reach this record in the history of the sport and he is the youngest to have ever done it. Casa Vieja Lodge congratulates Capt.
