Remember - this tourney is open to anyone. Locals, vacationers, kids, charters, etc. If you don't have a boat, grab a charter and line it up. If you need help with a charter let me know. There are a number of Headhunt veteran charter captains that will put you in the mix for the title.
For newbies, we don't take ourselves too seriously. We hope this keeps any cheating or shadiness away, and we purposely keep the entry fee low to make it open to as many people as possible. This tourney is as much about talking trash and having a good time as anything, and we always pick a good cause to throw some money to. We started this with 3 boats thirteen years ago, and the Burke family pulls this off with the help of a ton of people and sponsors in the local community. Even if it almost tears us apart every year.
We may need to step it up a bit on prizes this year, so if anyone has anything they think can juice up the prizes, definitely let me know - email@example.com.
I know we say it every year, but this is most likely the last. More details to come on that front, but goal is to blow this baby out. Still working out if we're changing any rules. We know we've kept it pretty open every year in terms of where you can fish, but as always there's some people trying to push us to make it a bit more local. Hit us up if you have an opinion, but will make the call well before the tourney either way.
Excited for the 14th annual we will be putting registration forms at local tackle shops or you can request one on the site and I'll email it out.
And I'll leave you with the image of the first year weigh in, we had three boats, and all three were 19 lbs. There was some serious controversy, and we lost by a few ounces. And haven't won yet. Until this year.
