Default MBGFC Mem Day Report

Fished the tournament with a crew full of family members (brother, sister, daughter, nephews, nieces etc..) had a blast. We were at Thunderhorse by 330 AM Sat morning with high hopes. We fished gorgeous blue water from there to Devils Tower, Ensco 8501 etc... On the second day we fished the steps area. We ended up with around 7-9 wahoo and 3-4 mahi, but none over 30lbs so we skipped the weigh in. I was a committee boat and did not give out a single confirmation #, the billfishing was slow.

As always the MBGFC crew puts on a great event!

Water was blue everywhere


Daughter and Niece waiting for the big one that never showed up


One of the many wahoo, notice the destroyed lure in background, I bet I had $500 in lures destroyed by those toothy critters this weekend!



Lunch on Jacquelyn, Jack and diet with boiled shrimp


My nephew trying to multi task while backing down on a wahoo


Not sure who is eating who here?!


My nephew and one more wahoo


Much needed sleep Saturday night!



Congrats to those that did well! Can't wait till the next tournament!

Robert

We caught all the wahoo while trolling for marlin, so leader was 250 lb mono on our shotgun lures, which is what they hit. Our shotgun was small 7" Melton Cherry Jets colored like flying fish. None cut us off, just destroyed the skirts

Looks like yall have a great trip though Robert.

Absolutely looks like a great trip! Amazing you own the boat and still have to sleep on the COUCH!!!! What's up with that? Looks like a great trip with the family and another great report with pictures.

I actually sleep best on the couch, close to the helm if I am needed. I sleep with one eye open and a VHF radio on my pillow. I had my nephews running the boat at 8 knts towards steps so I was comfortable sleeping. ON way out Fri night we were flying so I stayed up all night.

First rate comforts it looks like! Too bad nothing was able to get weighed at the scales. The Makaira lures were hot this weekend. Did any of yours get bit?

Love the shrimp and Jack shot!

I think it has been a weird start to the season from what it seems. At least you got out there and had a few fish.

Thanks for the report...I always look forward to seeing yours!

Looks like the trip was fun, but nothing big for the tournament - that's the way it goes sometimes. Great pics as usual! Did you get any reports where You Never Know found the big blue?
