Take a Hero Fishing Tournament – Reminder
I want to remind everybody about the upcoming Take A Hero Fishing Tournament on Friday May 8th. This is also going to be a Club boat tournament within the bigger tournament. If you are a captain and have already signed up or plan to sign up, please send me an email so that I can keep track of who is fishing. If you would like to enter and do not have a boat, let me know and I will see if there is any room on any of the Club boats.
Lines in and out follows the tournament times, which I believe is 8 am – 2 pm. In terms of scoring, this tournament is about keeping the rods bent for the guys we are taking fishing. (Almost)every fish caught counts. 1 point per pound for all meat fish (including kingfish, mahi, tuna, wahoo, snapper, grouper, cobia, tripletail, etc.), regardless of size. 25 points for Sailfish Release. 100 points for a marlin release. 5 points for shark, amberjack, barracuda, etc. release. 5 points maximum for each bonita caught (all of which should be saved for the guys in the club who use them for swordfish bait – I can collect these at the end of the tournament). No points for remora, triggerfish or other non-edible reef fish.
Let me know if you have any questions. This is being sent out under John’s login, so please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks. Steve Siegel.
