The First Qualifying Blue Marlin

The InTheBite Champion's Cup has its first qualifying blue marlin! Capt. Shane O'Brien and the 68' Blackwell "Wild Hooker" team weighed a 432.5-pound blue at the 2021 Kona Kickoff. This was the second largest blue weighed at the tournament giving the team 300 Champion's Cup points and putting the team in first place for Largest Hawaii Blue Marlin as well as Overall Blue Marlin within all the divisions. The World Cup Blue Marlin Championship is right around the corner (July 4) so register your team today before another blue is boated. Awesome job "Wild Hooker" and good luck to the teams in the upcoming tournaments.

April 29, 2021 Adding Teams Weekly

Hi everyone, I just returned from a short two day visit to Marsh Harbour and I'm happy to report Abaco Beach Resort looks great, especially with the fleet of sport boats docked in the marina. It was also nice to see everyone gearing up for the Production vs. Custom Shootout. We added a few more quality boats to our growing list of Champion's Cup teams—Wave Paver, Turn It Blue, Grander, Viking Demo and Gulf Bender. A few other teams said they will be signing up once they start fishing the East Coast Division. Our Largest Blue purse is close to $30k and we are trying to reach our first year goal of $50k (10 more boats). We'll have an update on the "Division Purses" soon. We've received some great positivity from everyone regarding the Cup and we're happy to explain any and all aspects of the tournament so everyone knows exactly how it works. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. Again, thanks to everyone who took the time to meet with me. Good luck to all and we'll continue our mission to encourage everyone to Fish Regionally and Compete Globally!

All the best,
Dale
