Chris Phillips and Geri Hosterman competed once again in the Patrick F. Doyle Saltwater Invitational Fishing Tournament in Galveston on June 30, 2016. The First National Title Insurance team also included Roland Love, Winstead PC, (soon to be General Counsel for FNTI) and Kelsey Granberry, Admiral Title Company.
The fishing tournament has been held for 13 years with more than 50 teams participating this year. It is sponsored by our agent Pat Doyle, attorney and owner of South Land Title, LLC, in Galveston County, and the proceeds benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of American. This charity is important to the Doyle family as Pat’s oldest daughter, Allie, was diagnosed with the disease in 2010. She is now in remission and attending the University of Texas Medical Branch Physician’s Assistant program.
An early-morning start proved advantageous with several large trout caught off one of the jetties. Fishing guide, Shawn Warren, took the team to his special fishing spots and nearly all proved to be full of trout. The FNTI team placed third in the Team Stringer Title Company Division with their largest five trout weighing in at 19.87 pounds.
Thanks to Pat Doyle, Roland Love, Kelsey Granberry, Carolyn Sunseri and the South Land staff for a great day of fishing and friendship.
