Frisco Resident is Recreating Fond Memories
Retired Boat Captain and Frisco Resident Returns to the Water

We all have things in life that bring us light and joy. We often call these things our hobbies or our passions.

Whether it's a trip to the ballpark or a blank canvas and paint, all that matters is that these activities bring us joy.

However, as many people get older, they lose touch with those activities. Whether it's because of health, mobility or time, those passions can seem like memories from another life.

That's how Joe Surovik felt about his passion, fishing. The soon-to-be octogenarian had spent a lifetime on the Texas gulf as a renowned fisherman and charter boat captain in the area.

But nearly three years ago, his coastal home was destroyed by Hurricane Harvey. So, his family moved him to North Texas. While his family is now nearby, the ocean is not. He hasn't been back on the water since.

That’s why his family, WFAA, the staff at Mustang Creek Retirement Community and the team at Bend A Rod Fishing got together to surprise the captain with a trip on the water.

Wes Campbell with Bend A Rod donated an entire morning on Lake Ray Hubbard for a day of guided fishing.
