The curse of ruff seas and bad weather now 4 years in a row. It was 80% chance of rain and rain and thunderstorms likely for Saturday and 90% of the same forecasted sunday and stiff east winds both days. The east wind was as forecasted but we didn't see any rain or lightning on Saturday and only drizzling rain on sunday. Plus seas laid down a little both days in afternoon so it ended up being much better than I feared but as you can see from leaderboard the big kings were no where to be found. We ended up winning 3rd place in aggregate division of biggest 4 kings and our biggest king was just 16.lbs and step daughter won a gift basket in ladys division for her 15.2.lb king. I spoke with Mike Wright at the captains meeting about the bad weather,etc. and believe there will be a different format involving more possible fishing days next year to insure that every boat big or small can get a better chance of decent seas and weather and setting the stage for a much better turnout.

Don't change it!!! Two days is plenty. September is a good time of year. Keep it no checkout and it will grow. Weather is crap shoot. You will never beat it. Take what you get and go fishing. Great tournament!!!

The best part about the tournament? They (Mike W & Co) raised $100k AGAIN for the Pensacola Ronald McDonald House (which houses out-of-town families with sick children at the hospital for free/small fee)

If you're considering next year's tournament, please know that the money is being put to good use.
