Is It All Wrapped Up?

What a morning for the Wrapped Up!

It's hard not to be excited for this team of long time Club Members and committed Tournament Committee Members! They left this morning with their eye on the prize, and "unofficially" they have taken over First Place with Three Sailfish Releases! Many will remember these gentlemen proudly clapping for the Showtime Ladies team made up of their wives and dear friends as they accepted the coveted Gold Cup last year. Could it finally be their turn?

No small day for the Osprey either! This Live Bait team has also released Three Sails putting them in a solid First Place for this division, but with scoring 3/1 they haven't climbed the Overall Leader Board quite as quickly.

We've got three hours left in the tournament, it's not over just yet.. but one thing is for sure, it's going to be a big night!!

Photo from the Wrapped Up included, in case you wondered what may have tipped the scales for them today..

Last Day and We're All Standing By!

The majority of our fleet may be getting a little extra rest this morning, but for three of our boats today is the day! Wrapped Up, Hit-n-Run, and Osprey are fishing their final day. All of these teams have an opportunity to shake up the leader board, and I know the fleet will be watching!

The weather is beautiful and everyday brings a new ocean, anything could happen!

Good Luck to our Teams!

The App Is Working. So Are Our Anglers and Crew!

Your eyes do not deceive you! One fish released all day. It is brutally slow fishing.

Watching from ashore, my admiration only grows for those giving it their all right now. The boats have run just as far, the mates have rigged just as many baits, the anglers are still behind the rods watching, waiting to see something different.. a sailfish.

When he finally does show up, everyone's going to jump, hearts are going to pound. Every good angler has missed one (a few) but today is not the day. The stakes are higher. These fish have become very very expensive.

No Pressure! But, we wouldn't play this game if our heart wasn't in it.

From the bottom of our hearts, Good Luck!!!

Good Morning Day 3!

3 seems to be the number of the day!
Bear with me here..
Day 3, 3 boats are taking their lay-day, 3 boats are in 3rd with 3, and our two top anglers, Dave Anderson Jr. And Serena Wilson have 3 fish each.. Thats something!
Congrats to Krazy Salts for holding onto the lead although Showtime! made them fight for it moving into 2nd and taking the daily with you guessed it... 3 fish.
With Wrapped Up currently in 3rd taking their lay-day today.. fans will have to watch this tournament through lines out tomorrow! It's still anyone's game.
Good Luck Everyone!

Lunch Break

Some people say sailfish take a lunch break, others say they bite as soon as you have a sandwich in your hand! Guess it depends on the day~

The past hour has been a little more quiet, but here at the Club we're cheering you all on for a big afternoon!

Michelle Gaylord and her team from Out Your Front Door have been doing an amazing job capturing all of our events and days on the water! Please remember to upload any images you might like included in the film she's putting together for our awards banquet. Photos are fun now but sure do mean more and more as the years go by. Don't miss your chance to include yours.

Enjoy your lunches, then wake up those fish!

Off To A Good Start!

The fleet is off to a more promising start this morning!
Big Dog and Showtime! have both released sails putting our top five boats within one fish of each other! A double for anyone in the top 13 would change our top 3!

It's easy to follow your favorite Anglers and Teams on our Reel Time App by going to the "Participants" tab and touching the star next to any Boat or Angler you would like to follow. This will allow the app to notify you each time they score. Especially helpful for any family or friends following along from shore -keeps us from wearing out that refresh button. :)

Day Two, Everybody's In!

Good Morning Gold Cup!

All 18 boats are fishing again today.

The Sailfish Club is happy to see two of our most involved members at the top of the leaderboard! Krazy Salts led by Team Captain David Anderson Jr. is in First Place with 900 points. Just behind them, on time, is is the Wrapped Up, led by Team Captain Chris Lazzara. Both teams have caught 3 sailfish on dead bait, but Krazy Salts is also holding the First Place Tuna at 21lbs. Just behind these two teams with 600 points is Frank Mazza's boat, the Tami Ann who also great showing last year.

As always, but especially when the fishing is a little slower, every bite counts. Hours of standing behind the rod watching each bait.. waiting for that split second when someone yells.. he's on ya!

Go get 'em Gold Cup! Good Luck to all of our teams!
