76′ Viking “Osh-It” – Sportfishing at its Finest
If you’re tournament fishing in South Florida, there’s no chance you haven’t seen “Osh-It” Sportfishing around. The 2014 76’ Viking is a regular during sailfish tournament season in the area. In fact, the team typically fishes at a half dozen of the larger tournaments in the area each year, and consistently brings home top prizes.
Tournament awards total over $500k for Osh-It, and Captain Jim attributes a lot of their success to the boat. “The boat raises fish” – the inexplicable but universally understood explanation for why some teams come home more successful than others definitely seems to apply to “Osh-It.” Sportfishermen have attributed this to particulars in the boat like propping, engines, and how the boat moves through the water that emits certain sounds or vibrations that draw more fish near. If you’re interested in entering the tournament fishing circuit, you’ll certainly be better off with one of these boats with a bit of “black magic.”
Onboard, the overall size of “Osh-It” also affords a competitive advantage. At 76’ LOA, the boat affords extra space for multiple anglers to work when more than one fish is on the line at a time. Tournaments are notorious for happening rough sea conditions, so the sheer size of “Osh-It,” and the SeaKeeper keep team members more comfortable these days. Your competitors on smaller boats will be wishing they were onboard with you!
When it’s time to relax and enjoy a less competitive atmosphere, “Osh-It” delivers there as well. Her current owners have enjoyed several weeks onboard each year, doing less fishing and more exploring all the remote islands of the Bahamas have to offer. From the Abacos to the Exumas, travel onboard is comfortable with the enclosed bridge, and speed that the 76’ Viking affords. Once you’ve taken in all that one island offers, a short cruise will relocate you to the next amazing destination.
