Fishing Tourneys

I didn't post a fishing tournament schedule this year.  "Skipped a groove man" as my young friend from LA used to say. 

However the best are yet to come.  We still have the Dorado shootout which starts July 16.  I fished it once about  3 years ago and it was a hoot. What impressed me the most was how well organized it was, especially the awards dinner.  Capt. Kit McNear from Western Outdoor News was and still is in charge. From the start, it was a seminar on how to do it right.

It's almost time for the Bisbee East Cape fishing tourney again. Registration is July 26. I spent a lot of time there last year watching the boats come in.  The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat were experienced several times as  bigger fish came to the dock. Click here for the wrap upI've known the Bisbee's Mexico organizer Clicerio Mercado for quite a while and he knows how to put on a good show. 

The last I'll mention is our own ALMA "For Pet's Sake" tourney.  It is a catch and release billfish contest that is scheduled for Oct. 28, 29, 30. I couldn't find results from 2010 on the internet but as I recall, the ladies team cleaned UP last year. Besides a bunch of good stuff, I think they won this year's entry into the Bisbee offshore.  WOW!

If you don't fish, you might want to get tickets to the award dinners. I haven't been to one yet that wasn't worth going to.
