Default MBGFC Jr. Angler report MSyellowfin

Fished the MBGFC Jr. Angler event this past Saturday with my wife and youngest daughter (older daughter is in Africa for summer working in an orphanage before heading off to college in the fall) and my sister and her two kids as well as my brother. As always MBGFC puts on an excellent tournament! I believe I heard they had 112 entrants. 13 billfish were caught as well as lots of nice wahoo, tuna and dolphin. Really really great event!
We chose to stay close and fish the Nipple to Elbow region. When we arrived at the Nipple the scattered grass made fishing tough so moved down towards the Elbow. About between the Nipple and Elbow along the 3-400 fathom line there were places the grass had formed up allowing us to fish. Around 10 AM my 15 yr old niece Sydney caught a nice blue marlin. Took almost an hour to land the fish as it was all up in tons of grass. There were times our line was one way and the fish a complete other due to being caught up in major grass. Fortunately the line held and we were able to catch the fish. First blue on the new boat to boot!!
A couple hours later my 17 yr old daughter Robin caught a real nice wahoo while we were high speeding down the same line.
When it was all done and said, my niece came in 3rd in catch and release and my daughter won the wahoo division and took home a new Ipad as a prize.
Everyone had a great time and is ready to go do it again!!


My niece hooked up on a blue



She looks a little different after an hour of battle!! Most of the liquid is mis placed Gatorade!



Grass played havoc big time!!! My nephew did a great job trying to keep line clean
