That is sad, its a classic. But he is right, fuel cost and the economy have driven a lot of boats to stay local. Baypoint was a real draw for Big Boats.

Total bummer on many fronts! Actually had planned on fishing this one this year, but I understand at the end of the day it has to at least cover expenses.

It will be interesting to see what fuel prices do to the game this summer. I have no doubt, no doubt that marina fuel prices will exceed $5 this summer, that equates to over $8500 to fill up a large sport fish. Going to be interesting!

Twentyfive years two blues over 1000# This was the first "Big Money" Tournament in the Gulf. It's a sad loss for Bay Point to join the list of lost big game tournaments East Pass, Destin Sailfish Rodeo, Outcast Blue Marlin, Sportsman Blue Marlin, Oyster Bar Blue Marlin Classic,McGuires, Shanahans, and the list goes on...

I think the fuel cost thing is BS. It may drive some of the smaller players out but all of the big battle wagons aint hurtin. Very surprised to see this big of a tournament get cancelled though. Hope the other major ones dont follow suit

Capt. Woody and I disagree on the issue of fuel cost being a big factor and we debate it frequently via text and email. I for one think it is a big factor, while most owners of high end sportfishermen can afford the fuel the pyscology of gas of $5/gallon plays a big part in peoples decision, just my opinion. Either way, sorry to see it go as it was a very well run and respected tournament /event.

I know for a fact that our tourney in Biloxi is still on in June, and it is going to be a pretty good turnout! The optional entry payouts will be crazy this year if the big boys go across the board!
