First off, Bob Joyce – Bob Halloran- and Mr. Hogan, I know that you all signed up for our tourney at Sunrise Bait and Tackle which is great. I/we just now need some contact info. and also would like you guys to sign the waiver form before Saturday but we do not have any contact info. Could you contact us at 774.487.0612 when you get a chance?
Okay now! It is the final days before the tourney and I/we are running around like stripers with their heads cut off!
Teams seem to be strategizing including our own team “Jackal”. Coming up with a plan and an approach is all part of the fun even though the whole planning thing continues to be such a complete S#$t storm which makes it even better. Too much planning can mess you up and too little planning can mess you up or either side of that wagon can give you victory which is why fishing tournaments are so great and why we need this event out our way so badly!!!
There is going to be an informal Captain’s meeting at around 5pm Friday at the Hot Stove Saloon and all teams can monitor Channel 8 on Saturday for tourney updates and chatter.
The energy is building and the weather looks like it is going to hold. The anticipation also seems to be more solid and much more serious this year than in the past with even the heavy hitters keeping things more quietly focused and this year. For me this is the first HeadHunt has me feeling like I am getting ready for a “top-notch” competition where angling teams are preparing and gunning for the top prize more than just going out to just have some fun. Anything goes and anything can happen in fishing and that is what makes this type of event so great. I love that we have been able to create something that we want and have wanted to be a part of for years now and being legit is all that I want this even to be all about.
Good times! Great competition! Solid Smack Talking! Team and Tournament camaraderie and great saltwater fishing tournament fun!
Platinum Building and his team looks like they may be fishing for saltwater taffy at some beach this Saturday which will be lame but who needs a bunch of girls again this year that would have easily come in 3rd last year without trying. Chris and his team having fun at the park only leave bigger pieces of the pie for the rest of us. T. Lewis also looks like he may be hitting the “house of blues” on Saturday which is respectable if you are one of those “house of blues” guys.
Has everyone heard of RON Z and his fishing tackle? I am sure that everyone has seen his gear but like me you may be used to your sluggos and fin s fish and standard jig heads and continue to use them as they are what you have in stock in your tackle trays. RON Z and his company have been supporters of this tourney for years now providing us with tackle to award to our tournament winners. I always liked his stuff but the jig heads and plastics that are built up in my tackle have kept me away from even thinking about buying more plastics. The end of the last season and more so this year I/we have purchased a his rigs and I/we can honestly say that we will go back to the old sluggo style rig unless we are amidst the blues or honestly unless I need to use up my smaller jig head and plastic inventory in the shallows.
The RON Z just works better in the water at all levels and just works itself more naturally with what seems to be a properly weighted momentum that just feels like it should without having to try too much on getting the rig to “ride” right.
Alright, I am only going on about gear reviews as I am just now getting back into the true fishing vibe after a solid two seasons off and I am only now finally getting to once again be able to appreciate what tackle fits my needs
Sunrise Bait and Tackle is back in the mix with us again and thanks again to them and all of their support and the set up for Saturday at Jake Rooney’s looks perfect.
