Default International Billfish tourney 57 boats

Thank you for those fishing. For those on the land for the weekend and want to watch weigh ins. Friday 5-9pm and Saturday 3-9 at Palafox pier plaza de Luna park. There will be food vendors adult beverage and retail sales. Come down and cheer the boats on.

We ended up with 57 boats fishing we had 12 that dropped out. Total prize money up for grabs with Calcutta and tourney money approx $350,000. There will be updates through the PBGFC Facebook page. I will be fishing on the TAILWALKER 36 Albemarle. Good luck to everyone and safe travels this weekend!! Thanks to all the PBGFC club members for putting on a great tourney. Hope to see big crowds when we return. There are some impressive vessels fishing including an 82 Viking from S. Fla. bring the camera and bring the family and enjoy!!

Gonna be 4+ tonight, 4-6' tomorrow. They will have to shovel some people out of the little boats tomorrow if they decide to stay out tonight.

There will be some horror stories when folks get back in I bet.

I have been there before. And it's no fun even in a 82 Viking, maybe not as bad but not enjoyable.

was in it all day today in a 31 contender CC.around the spur and it wasn't at all fun. we never saw the 2 to 3's,(except between the 5 to 7's) they were calling for and the lightning show was intense at times. the blue water vanished from our grasp sometime in the night and the dirty water was void of life. we started heading NW to a break in the clouds trolling some plastics then the starboard engine died.got it going again but couldn't get up the RPM's past 2200 and maintain it. so we turned tail toward the hill. made it in around 4pm getting soaked the entire way with a very stiff WNW wind,but made it home safe and sound and that's what counts.tomorrow looks to be worse than today so i hope all stay safe out there and catch -um -up.

Dang Cliff,

Sounds like the Recess Team was hanging tough in some bad conditions.

Sorry to hear about the starboard engine but glad ya'll made it back safe.

I bet a warm non-rocking bed will be most welcomed tonight.

Bad seas seems to creep up during these tourneys lately.

Better luck next time Recess Team!

Jimmy

Hope everyone stays safe out there. Was in it all day in close and it got ugly this afternoon. Hopefully they get rewarded with some great fishing!
