Also want to thank Captain Dangler for offering to donate a custom squid bar – that is awesome! Any other prizes anyone wants to donate would be great. The boat numbers are currently pretty low, but that’s usually the case since most boats sign up last second. It makes it tougher for us to put together prize packages, so spread the word and get your forms and cash in as soon as you can.
I met with longtime Headhunt contributor Puma this week – my fellow BC alum is head of international PR for them and donated some great gear again. The sizes are a little all over the place because she basically pillages gear from the round the world sailing team, but it is slick offshore puma gear - $400 jackets and $100 pair of shorts, and a high performance shirt – but mostly medium size and a 1-2 larges. We’ll put together the packages based on the final tally of gear, but so far we have some On the Water subscriptions, Quantum reels, Puma offshore gear, and a custom squid bar – and hope to add a few more things that we’ll dig up. This is all obviously in addition to the cash money! We also got cozies from Hammerhead Creatives which we’ll give away at the party. Thank you again Heather Jackson and the Hammah Head team. And big thanks to On the Waterfor including us in the weekly fishing report they send out – if you aren’t subscribed definitely go to their site and check it out – great weekly report on different areas.
Lastly, sounds the fishing has been 2L2L2Q. We haven’t been out, sadly, but I know Sports Bag and others have been slaying it out on the rips. One report of 45 fish caught one trip, and our past tourney champ Jailbreak Charters had 50 fish last week on one trip! I know Sportsbag has been talking a big game, but so far the little fellar seems to be backing it up, and his nemesis Petey has been quiet on the fishing, and trash talking front. Rare for him. Either way, love the enthusiasm and thanks to everyone for sending in reports, and feedback and thank you again to Captain Dangler – early favorite for MVP of the tourney right now!
