According to a dictionary, “revelry” is an occasion of boisterous celebration. If a fisherman’s heart isn’t made joyous at the sound of a reel screeching as the drag slips line to a smoker king mackerel, he’s picked the wrong sport.
Revel may be an archaic word to some folks, but for the owner, crew and anglers aboard the Reveler, it’s an appropriate boat name. It was a late summer morning, with haze hanging heavy in the air when an engine yawned to life at Beaufort’s Town Creek Marina. Reveler’s owner, Capt. Pat DiGiuseppe, was fishing for fun, allowing his charter captain and mate, the husband and wife team of Carlos and Hope Sanderson, a lay day.
