LINES OUT!!! 3:30p

Day One - LINES OUT!

Congratulations to our "unofficial" day one winning teams. And a big THANK YOU to all our teams who fished today.

01/20/22 @ 2:55 PM

Almost there....

Almost there, teams!

Lines will be out at 3:30 and the weigh station will open at the Buccaneer Marina.

Please remember to let us know if you have fish to weigh.

Hookups can be called in 15 minutes prior to lines out!

We have (at least) released 5 fish for the day... can we make it to 10?

See you soon...

ps.. here is the breakdown of how many teams entered each calcutta category! We have over $360k in the pot and two more days to contend!

While we have a minute waiting on the fish to come out of hiding - I'd like to take a minute to THANK our generous sponsors!

We have the best community and seeing everyone together last night at The Viking Service Center was almost as fun as watching our teams use the word "merkin" in a sentence ;)

Our gift bags, shirts, buckets, food trucks, DJ and bar - were all possible because these incredible companies chipped in!

And the (hmmm) fun - and fishing isn't over yet. Even if, the bite is slow.

Teams - the weigh station will be open at (our namesake) The Buccaneer Marina - today from 3:30-5:30 to weigh any met fish you may have. Lets hope they are biting.

Thank you all for following and for your continued support.

Time to start drinking!

We need some action...
Maybe our "word of the day should have been - Dunkaroo!

JK - Dont get your MERKINs in a knot! ;)

Our 10am update is:

ONE "BIRTHDAY" RELEASE for The VIKING 64' at 9:02am - making it the 1st and ONLY fish caught today (so far).
