Much like Valentine Thomas before her, Darcie Arahill has attained Internet stardom for her bikini-clad fishing exploits.
The 26-year-old from Boynton Beach, Florida, has gained more than 100,000 followers on her Instagram, where she details her daily offshore fishing battles. And while her account has drawn many a follower because Arahill looks great in a bikini, she’s also reeled in some impressive catches, like this 8-foot bull shark she hooked back in July:
“Most just assume fishing is for middle-aged guys, so proving that we girls can do it too gives me a great thrill," Arahill told Caters News. "I do everything from rigging to cast netting and even cleaning the catch. I love nothing more than battling against a big fish, and on the weekends I spend every waking minute out on the boat. People are shocked when they see me stand in my bikini holding a 6-foot tuna or snapper.”
Arahill, who studies at Florida Atlantic University and works in real estate, hopes to turn her online fame into a career as a pro.
"The ultimate goal is to go pro," she added. "I love being out on the boat, and if I could turn that into my job, that would be perfect."
