“I love to fish offshore for billfish, and have fished all over for them from the Bahamas, St. Thomas, Venezuela, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico to the Texas gulf. I haven’t made it to Australia yet, but someday I’m going.” – George Strait
“Even though I’ve been doing it for so long, I still feel fresh. Even when I walk out on stage, I still feel pretty much the same as I’ve always felt.” – George Strait
