The wait for Pocket Ranger Trophy Case™ is almost over! In anticipation of our soon-to-be-released photo/video-sharing social networking app, developed exclusively for anglers, hunters, wildlife viewers and avid outdoor enthusiasts, ParksByNature® Network Founder and Program & Development Director, Brett Melillo, is getting a head start on the action.
Brett has already started working toward collecting his first trophies by sinking lines and hooking fish galore while exploring down in Tulum, Mexico.
Staying at his friend Jimmy’s self-sustaining house, Casa de las Olas (House of Waves)*, nestled on a secluded beach, Brett and his wife Myra joined a deep-sea fishing excursion 50 minutes off the coast of the Riviera Maya. Their goal? Catch their lunch and dinner for their remaining days in Tulum.
Day number one was quite a success!
They reeled in three dorado (mahi-mahi), one barracuda, and finished their streak with a Trophy Case-worthy 86” sailfish.
When Pocket Ranger Trophy Case™ debuts next month, you’ll be able to view these posts – and more – on Brett’s public profile! To mark this momentous release, Brett will embark from New York City on June 11 with veteran sport fisherman Brad Alcini for a journey down the East Coast. Along the way, he will visit local parks to take in the views, sink a line or two in the freshwater lakes to see if he can hook any small- or largemouth bass, while keeping his eyes peeled for interesting wildlife sightings in his surroundings and overhead. He will wrap up his tour on June 15 aboard the 57’ Sport Fisher, Dream Girl, over the deep waters of North Carolina’s Outer Banks near the Gulf Stream, targeting yellowfin tuna and mahi-mahi on a fishing expedition headed by renowned tournament-winner Captain Jason Snead. There’s even a shot of catching a big blue marlin!
What else will Brett be up to on his travels? You’ll be able to follow him as he goes along! Throughout this expedition, he will use the Pocket Ranger Trophy Case™ app to post photos with descriptions of his achievements. In addition to setting his profile to public, Brett will switch on the app’s GPS Geo-tag feature so that you will be able to view and track his progress by viewing his posts on a map. Follow his feed and stay in the loop on his adventures. Let him know what you think by leaving comments. He’ll be sure to find time to reply – in between catching fish and spotting birds, of course!
Can’t wait to follow Brett’s fishing and wildlife tour and get started earning trophies yourself? We’ll of course keep you posted on this exciting release as the date approaches. Stay tuned!
