Either way, it's fishing time. Team Jackal stalwart Tria continues to crush it in Rhody with this 40 lb hog above. I think that fish would win the tourney this year. Overall sounds the bite around the rips is still a little spotty, but there are pockets of fish up and around the outer cape. People are becoming increasingly tightlipped, but I've seen some big fish pulled in over the weekend on Facebook - namely from a few folks trying to tuna fish.
Team Jackal will be holding our annual pre-tourney conference call. We should really live stream it for comedic value since it's always a complete debacle and we still end up staring at each other at 4 am on Saturday wondering where we are headed and asking who brought the fried chicken.
Good news is shirts are in. Beautifully modeled below. Burke ladies always love the family events where they dress up nice and the guys show up in full on Headhunt gear. We need to bring the visors back.
A few other quick notes for the tourney. First, we will use channel 69 for tourney chatter again. If you're on the fish feel free to call me directly on my mobile as well and tell me where they are and what you are using. Thanks in advance.
We will also be meeting at the Hot Stove on Friday night. Early. Last few years we have gone a little too hard and our illustrious captain has had some resulting stomach issues so I don't think we will be there past 7.
If you are playing the weather - and fishing - until the last minute, get those forms in early as you can. They need to be in hand Friday for you to be counted. Your best bet is have one sent to you and then you can wait to submit if needed.
Let's hope some more reports start flowing in. Time to start dialing in.
Speaking of, if you want to dial into the Team Jackal call Wed night, just let me know and you'll be in for a treat. Think Real World / Road Rules Challenge meets Bobs Burgers.
