Default MBGFC Limited

Didn't take any pics. Long story short, was asked to run a 34 seavee for the weekend, and made the call to run southwest from Perdido Pass. Got our asses kicked until midnight before the sloppy 2-3s laid down and we were then able to haul ass on flat calm seas until 4 in the morning or so. Began chipping away at the tunas and started releasing any fish smaller than our couple in the box. Picked up a couple dolphin, one of which was good enough for 3rd overall, but a little higher in the calcutta. Due to our distance from the pass (around 150nm), I conservatively cut our fishing time short to allow for time to get back. Better early than not at all, but I wish we had had a bit more time. Ended up winning right at $6k, which covered our expenses for the weekend and then some. MBGFC puts on a great show; have fished this tournament before and will fish it again. Next up is Labor Day for us on my new boat

Wow! 150 nm, that explains why we didn't catch diddly! Nice job and congrats!

There were plenty of fish within 120m. Probably shoulda stayed close!

Yes Woody, there were some fish closer in!

Left OBA at 10:30 on the Half A Drink. Ran almost all the way to the Squiggles, fished our way back west around the Spur. Headed towards the Elbow, picked up a just shy Dolphin at 19.2 pounds and another small one. Decided to pick up and run to the Nipple to end the day. 5:30 got the bite we needed. Blue Marlin on the flat line. My wife's first billfish was released at 5:56 and we headed to the Pass. Had some engine troubles and had to abuse our boat as if we had a king mackerel in the box!

Made it at 7:47PM. Top Boat, 1st Place C & R, Top Lady Angler and Top Club Member. Top money winner in the tournament as well with $9,000. Great MBGFC prizes too, Phantom Drone, Sat Phone, Cajun Fryer....hats off to David Cain for a great job running the tournament.

Didn't get any great pix, need to pull some off the video.
