Historical Note: Butch Moser started fishing at a very young age. By age 13, he was working as a mate on several charter boats.

Scope and Content Note: Clippings and photographs detailing off-shore fishing from Boynton Inlet. Includes a scrapbook with clippings of “Captain of the week” articles, tournament standings, and articles on the boating accidents involving the Kit-Dan (1962) and the Two Georges (1964). Photographs include photographs of charter boat patron group portraits (1960s) and photographs of Moser (1950s and 2000s).
