InTheBite magazine is proud to announce its 2012 Captain of the Year is Rob Moore. Captain Rob, at the helm the of the Viking 70 Enclosed Bridge Fa La Me owned by Frank and Mary Ellen Rodriguez proved that he is at the top of his game. Rob had an incredible season in 2012 leading Fa La Me to an unprecedented string of victories. They were crowned the Bahamas Billfish Champions and went on to win the Bermuda Triple Crown series among others. But this team is not resting on their laurels, this past weekend they won the Buccaneer Cup with 15 sailfish releases proving that when you're hot, you're hot.

Congratulations are also in order to fellow Captain of the Year nominees Captain Jason Buck and Captain Keith Greenberg. Jason, captaining Jon Gonsoulin's Viking 56 Done Deal, had an incredible season in the Gulf of Mexico stocking the trophy case with hardware at the Mobile Big Game Memorial Day Tournament as well as Winning the Gulf of Mexico Triple Crown Series, to name just a few.

For the second year in a row, Keith has been nominated for his role as David Anderson's captain on the Viking 70 Convertible Krazy Salts. Keith and his crew racked up an impressive string of tournament victories stretching from the Bahamas to Cape May, New Jersey.
