I know that this is getting a little ridiculous with the weather, but it feels like we are due for some good weather and good fishing.
Our second hat tournament of the sailfish series will be Saturday February 13th. This will be a half day tournament – lines in at 7:30 a.m. and lines out at 12:30 p.m. Everyone can then head by boat to Steve Siegel’s house in LHP for weigh in, fish stories and pizza and beer. These are always great tournaments with excellent 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.
