Default Memorial Day T trip report

Fished the MBGFC Memorial Day Tourn. this weekend. Last time I checked the calcutta board there was right at $450k wagered!! Crew was basically all family, my girls, my sister and her kids as well as a few nephews other relatives. Great crew, great to all be together! as a few of them will start college this fall.

I don’t ever remember seeing a Roff’s that showed so many opportunities, blue water appeared to be just about everywhere! Dawn on Saturday found us down near Lloyd’s Ridge over 130 miles from OB. Scattered weeds made trolling next to impossible with no evidence of the grass having formed up. Around noon we made the call to run to Deepwater Nautilus. When we got there another tournament boat was fighting a blue so things looked good. Wound up with 5 yellowfin with largest being near 60 lbs or so. Spent night under a sea anchor for some much needed rest.

Sunday we trolled north on a line that Roff’s showed, found some grass that had formed up but could not turn it into a bite. Around 2 pm in open water, the center rigger goes off and a mid size blue starts tailwalking in the rear of our propwash. Everyone starts screaming and we start getting my daughter settled in the chair and then the fish is off?!?!?!?!?!? Everyone got to see the marlin jumping, so that was cool, but man was it heart breaking to lose! Oh well, that’s fishing.

Ended the trip with the 5 YF. As we came thru the pass it looked like a boat parade of some of the nicest sportfishing yachts/boats I have ever seen, man what a turnout!!! As always, MBGFC puts on a first class event!!

We heard a fellow Mississippian caught 5 blues way to the SW!! No doubt a lot of boats were able to put the hurt on them! Congrats to them all!

Now time to lick my wounds and replenish the tournament fund cookie jar so we can fish another!!

Otto: All the YF were caught chunking, it's a shame your getting married, I guess that means the SeaVee is for sale?
