Hey Guys and Gals:

The weather outlook has improved and tournament day should be awesome. Bryan and I packed up lots of nice door prizes yesterday, so we will be giving generously again this year thanks to our many supporters.

Our new sponsors are raising the bar for angler prizes as well. Bull Bay rods, Wheeleeze, Pensacola Kayak and Sail, just to name a few nice new angler prizes.

I'm sure you all have noticed the new "Biggest Pelagic" category we have added. This should add some adventure to those who want to hunt Cobia.

Of course we could never do this tournament without the annual support from our local Hobie dealer, Key Sailing who provides several Hobie mirage drive kayaks and Academy Sports and Outdoor who also increased their support. (I even heard that Jay and Bryan picked up some Trevala rods to give away) If you haven't been to the new store, check it out.

As you plan for the big day, don't forget:

  • Last volunteer meeting is Wednesday 5:30 at IMS, 4400 Bayou Blvd Ste 4
  • Bring a new lure to the Capt meeting on Friday to enter best dang tackle box drawing
  • Bring a few extra bucks to enter the reverse raffle for a Hobie Pro Angler. Tix are $10
We will see you there.

Ted

Weather looks great for the inshore guys. Surf forecast looks terrible so far for us offshore folks. We will keep our fingers and toes crossed that five days straight of ten to twenty mile an hour SE winds magically lays down and the surf calms down come tourney day.

GCKFA-Best Dang Tackle Box

The BDTB bucket is presently at Hot Spots if you want to drop in your lure and fill out your ticket with contact info. Remember only new lures, no Captain's Bags lures and Chris will offer a discount for lures you purchase in store that are being dropped into the BDTB bucket. And yes, Gulp is a lure. Enter early, enter often!!

Better prizes? Whaaaaat? I've always been quite impressed with ALL the prizes. My favorite one of all was a stick-it anchor I got for a third place trout a few years back. That thing is awesome. I use it for everything...anchor, polling, gigging, depthfinder, alligator beater, shark protection, theft deterrent, kung fu....ok, maybe not all that, but it is awesome! It's my favorite accessory. Thanks GCKFA!

im watching the weather sites on a regular basis (long distance), and it looks like the offshore weather is looking about as good as you could hope for. i know you guys are right there, and watching the weather too, so i might be way off, but i think i like what i'm seeing.

cheers

The offshore division could get very interesting. 18 cobia off of PEnsacola pier today, and a 41 lb king in navarre. Wow.

With the state of my inshore spots, I'm strongly considering going offshore. The smoker run is about to cut loose and I'd really like to get in on some of that action. Here it comes fellas, that 41 pounder was leading the pack.
