Hat Tournament – Sailfish Series – Tournament #1

Sailfish season is almost here!  Our first hat tournament of the sailfish series will be November 14th.  This will be an all day tournament – lines in at 7:30 a.m. and lines out at 3:00 p.m.  (Our next one in December will be a half day with lunch).

These are always great tournaments with great captains and crews.  As usual, each captain can pick one mate.  The rest of the anglers will be picked out of the hat.  If you are a new member or have never fished one of these tournaments, I encourage you to sign up.  If you have any questions about these hat tournaments, let me know.

To register, please email me at ssiegel@laborlawyers.com, call me at (954) 594-4514 or register on the website.

Here are the rule and how we are going to score this tournament:

  1. All kite baits and live baits fished without a sinker must be circle hooks
  2. J hooks and stinger hooks can be used on your deep baits

Sailfish Releases: 25 points

Marlin Release: 50 points

Mahi, Blackfin, Wahoo, Cobia, Kingfish: 1/2 point per pound for all legal size fish(maximum of 3 fish per species – no minimum weight limit)

Bonus for catching 4 eligible species – 25 points


We are planning our annual Bimini Wahoo Trip for November 20-22, Friday – Sunday.  This is always one of the best trips of the year. Please join us either as a captain or an angler. 

New members – this is a great trip to get to know some of the best fisherman in the club and learn a ton about wahoo fishing and Bahamas trips.  If you have a boat but not a lot of Bahamas wahoo experience, let me know and I will make sure to get you an experienced crew. 

Once I get a handle on how many boats and anglers, I will coordinate the details of where we are staying and timing and crews. 

In addition to high speed wahoo trolling, I’m sure some of the crews will do some deep dropping, yellowtailing or spearfishing.

Details of the Saturday wahoo tournament to follow in a subsequent email.
