Default Last Three Weekends

The last two weekends has seen Team Jacquelyn fishing tournaments. First the MBGFC Jr. Angler followed by last weeks Blue Marlin Grand Championship. I consider myself very blessed to have fished these events with my family.

While we had a blast fishing both events our billfish count was rather dismal as the billfish bite did not really turn on til last week. We fished numerous awesome looking rips and weedlines but just could not seem to find the bite. We fished from the squiggles to the spur over to Nakika and south to well below Independence Hub, covered a ton of water! Scared to look at the fuel bill! Ha ha!

Both events were ran exceptionally well by great groups of people. Having said that, this was our second year to fish the Blue Marlin Grand Championship and let me tell you, itís in a league of its own! Awesome venue, schedule, prizes etcÖ I feel very fortunate to have fished it these last two years.

Tom Hilton put on a seminar on last Weds that was awesome, thought I knew how to use Hiltonís before, but man did I learn a lot! If you subscribe to Hiltonís make sure you are using the RT-Nav app as it is amazing!

Following are just a some of the pics I took from last week.

Some of the bad weather had to deal with

Robert, looks like a lot of fun. I am looking forward to my boys getting older and doing just what you are doing with your family.

You are lucky to be able to spend that quality time together with your family. When my 2 and 4 yr olds grow up little do they know (maybe I'm kidding myself all I do is talk and watch fishing so they probably know already) that they'll be my team and deckhands!!

Great pics and even better memories.
