T-shirts are in and selling like hotcakes, so get yours fast. We also now have some original Jean Burke fishing cards, some of which will go to those who place in the tourney. Along with the On the Water prize pack and this bitch is cooking. A few years from now and this baby will be the biggest tourney in the Northeast – or least in Harwichport.
It sounds like Mike O’Brien, is breaking kneecaps to get people signed up and is kicking ass – right now we are predicting over 15 boats in this tourney. Keep in mind - we had 3 boats the first year. We just need some of the local heavyweights to get involved, I know some of the Saquatucket charter captains “don’t do tournaments!” as I was yelled at last year, but we know that Seamus “I may have a scup charter to P-Town” that day should be in if he can make it, and could be a force. Maybe the Glen “the oilman” from Texas will enter half his fleet and we will instantly have over 70 boats, or Pete “the mercenary” will come out of retirement and lay some wire out on the rips 2.9 miles off the coast.
There are still rumblings the Goose could be sold before the tourney, but the Burke bros will still be a force to be reckoned with. All I need is a drop line, some powerbait, and a few porno mags and we can still win this baby. More than anything, there are serious bragging rights on the line so get involved and spread the word. My money still says the two time champs can’t keep up with some of the young guns entering – even though Good Charlotte owns that crew - but with an early date like June 30th, maybe a sea robin will win this whole thing. I have contacted Tred “kill or be killed” Barta, and Charlie “the larry longliner” Moore, but haven’t heard back, so this baby is still a wide open field.
Either way, BC football rules.
