  1. Any Fishermen on this Forum??

    last Night I got a call from a good friend of mine ( Adam) .

    He can barley Speak as he tries to hold back his excitement.
    he kept yelling ..WE ARE IN FIRST PLACE.

    finally after he calms down a bit ..He say the Boys and him took a 720 lbs Blue Marlin and they are currently in first place at the South Jersey Tournaments Mid-Atlantic $500,000.

    Ready for this.

    If the Fish stand and stays in first place.

    they receive .......Over Half a million dollars ( $500.000.00 ) with all the Calcutta's and side bets included.:shock::shock:

    I have gone fishing a billion time With Adam and all i caught was a case of red Bottom.

    spanked Over and over again..

    Adam has become one heck of a captain In the past few years .
    Two years ago He took second place in Block Island Tri State and missed first place By 12 lbs With his Big eyed Tuna.
    It still paid him Over $50,000.

    You can follow the turnament here

    You can see some pictures Here

    The fish has been given to a food shelter.

    What A LUCKY SOB.

    good for him.

    I was fishing this summer in lake Guntersville, went to anchor in deep water when a catfish sallowed my 16# fluke anchor. He pulled the boat 12 miles up stream with me using reverse as a drag before he got tired. When we got him back to the ramp, we had to wench him out on the boat trailer. I would post a picture but the camera was out of film.
