Default Redfish Regatta wrap-up

Well it was a great day to be on the water. Hopefully the folks that had pictures will add them on as the thread grows. And to keep you from the suspense any longer it did float and he did get to fish this year........arrgh..........Linda and Ernie took the lead early with 2 redfish and stayed in the lead for most of the day. Seacapn took the lead late with 3 fish and never looked back. Team "alumi-mavrick" caught 2 as well and tied for second. Seacapt also won the Karon print for most spots. And the pretigous "trash talk" award was taken home by................................................ ..........well we had to give him something for just making it out there, huh Dan. We ended the day with some great cooking by Ocean Man, awesome coconut AJ.

Thought for the day: Even us back woods, banjo pickin, sister marrying, Mississippi folks know how to check lug nuts while greasing our bearing buddies before driving to the boat ramp....... Glad ya finally made it Sam.

Thanks to JimT for the tourney, to Ocean Man for the coconut amberjack, Karon for the awesome design on the T's( if you dont have a Karon buy a T), and Dan for all the trash talk.

We had a great time, I think this will be the last day I fish from a boat before the baby comes & it was a good one. Beautiful day, fishing was a little slow but we managed to keep each other laughing most of the day. Great to put some names with some faces out at ft mcree and the food was awesome - that coconut aj was the bomb!

glad the hear you guys all had a good time. Jim's tourny is a great chance to dust off the fishing cobwebs and have some great fun. I hate to have missed it but once again, the old military obligation called. It's about time to retire, Jim, save me a seat on the boat soon. I need to wet the lines again!! Congrats to all the participants....

Thanks everybody for a GREAT day on the water!:letsdrink:letsdrink:letsdrink

Food was A-ONE, freinds were even better!!!

Total of 13 boats this year... First place was worth $130, a tie for second produced $65.00 each.

There was talk of applying pieces of electrical tape to he tail of a Black Drum to try to get in the money... but apparantly it wouldn't stick... black magic marker just bleeds off. Burning cigarette holes in the tail was brought up too... You guys are inventive!

Our winner called in with his first fish. I asked him where he was fishin' he said, "Dame's Point Bridge..." I happen to KNOW that particular bridge is in JACKSONVILLE!

I relayed that information to brnbser... He laughed and Scottsaid..."I've fished against Al in SKA tourneys...if a SKA fisherman tells you where he is fishing, he is ALSO lying!"

I guess he was right!

Jim

Next year I'll look at the tides before I pick a weekend though.

Oh, I have a few shirts left... I didn't lose much money with extra shirts this year. Not so many I can't make 'em stocking stuffers at Christmas and such.

Thanks again!
