As always, this is a legitimate tuna tournament, with action not to be missed.
In fact, it is “New England’s Premier Giant Bluefin Tuna Tournament” and it does not disappoint.
Great work done by the organizers, the sponsors, the boat crews, and everyone else involved.
A great chance to peak inside what this side of the fishing industry can be like!
The crowd was excited, the competition was on…yet friendly, the Orion was up to their usual antics all “Funky Red Barn” style, and the fish were…well, BIG.
A heartfelt moment of silence for past “Weigh Master”, Mark Godfried (whom I worked for and loved), was a really nice touch.
To kick-off this year’s tournament, Day #1 ended with The Miss Fern bringing in a fish that weighed 805 pounds. It was immediately followed by Tuna.com’s 913 pounder. Yikes!
Congratulations to all! Check out tournament info here
