Bono... fishing?

I just heard from a friend who owns a yacht in Key West, something called Kings something (forgot sorry) and said on April 17, 2012 Bono has rented his yacht for an annual fishing tournament. Now I know Bono likes boats and boating but does anyone here know if Bono is an avid fisherman? Does this story have any credibility?

I'd say the likelihood that he'd actually reserve it in his own name is pretty low.

Personally, the idea of Bono fishing made me laugh.

Don't know if he actually does.

I've never heard any report of him fishing, so if this thing was annual, we'd have known. Sounds like bull to me.

Besides, april is mating season for lots of fish, bad time to go fishing. Best wait till after May.

Bono once said in an interview that he was asked by some US politician if he does fishing because fishing seems to be a cliché in regards to Irish people, and he said no he doesn't. I honestly don't see him do that.

Fishing requires sitting still and being quiet -- two things that Bono is not good at.

I don't think Bono has a yacht. Edge does, though. There were a bunch of news articles a couple of years ago claiming Bono bought an expensive yacht, and then there was one quoting Edge where he said the yacht is his and that "Bono knows nothing about boats!" or something like that.
