11/29 HAT Tournament Results

Whistlin’ Dixie took first place with 2 sailfish and a healthy 37lb kingfish. Sherman Nicks, Staley Weidman, Phil Crowell, Charlie Berkley and Fred Bamman made up the team. Congratulations! Second place went to Team Split Decision with Mark Repetski, Burt Moss, Frank Schmidt, Steve Siegel and Matt Cappiello. They caught 1 sailfish and a dolphin. There were no other qualifying fish caught but all the boats saw action with kingfish and dolphin. The weather was a big question going into the tournament but it turned out to be very manageable with decent size swells but not much chop on top of them. The entire fleet met at the yacht club for lunch following the tournament. Not a bad day!

Thanks to all who participated. Our next HAT tournament is scheduled for 12/20. Mark your calendars. Details will be out soon.

11/29 HAT Tournament Update

Gentlemen,

All of the captains are still planning to fish tomorrow so the tournament is on. The weather forecast is for 15-20 knot winds from the NE and 2-4ft seas with some 6 footers nearshore and 4-6ft with some 8s offshore. I know not everyone finds that comfortable. All the captains agree that if anyone does not want to go out, they can cancel free of charge (you don’t owe your share of the expenses). If you want to cancel, let your captain know as soon as you can.

FYI – Greenberg already has 3 sails and some dolphin this morning just in case you need some incentive.

Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.

11/29 HAT Mixed Bag Tournament – Teams

We have 25 anglers and 5 boats signed up. Below are the team selections along with the rules. Split Decision will be the committee boat and we will monitor channel 72. There is no requirement to call in fish but I would like everyone to call in catches so everyone knows what the competition is doing. The weather doesn’t look wonderful but perhaps it will motivate the sailfish. If the forecast starts looking ugly, we will make a decision on Thursday evening or Friday morning. We are set up to have lunch at the YC from 1 to 2 pm. Captains/crews, please get in touch to work out logistics. Good luck to all.

Anyone not on the list below that figures out they can fish should call me. We are pretty full on each boat but I will see if I can find a spot.

Call me with questions.

11/14 – 16 Bimini Wahoo Tournament Results

We ended up with 4 boats and 13 club members fishing the tournament. Unfortunately, it was one of those “you should have been here yesterday” trips. Most of the people fishing on Thursday and Friday did ok on wahoo. However, none of our boats caught one on Saturday so we did not have a tournament winner. Fortunately, some of our members went to plan B and did well deep dropping and spear fishing. Hopefully, we will get a few good stories from the crews at the meeting tonight.
