Nicole, Michelle, George, Charlotte, and I had an exciting morning watching Dan Murphy and Rob Porter arriving to shore with a beautiful 96″ Bluefin Tuna. The tuna meat was given a thumbs up!
$366,050. Knowing how passionate and dedicated they are…and knowing they won’t stop until there’s a cure… I guess I shouldn’t be surprised….but, yet I was. This group….this amazing and determined group….supported, celebrated, and loved by so many generous friends, sponsors, captains/crews, advertisers, and family members…. knocked it completely out of the park.
Last night, gathered at the Beauport Hotel, the Lyon-Waugh Auto Group presented a check to the Alzheimer’s Association.
With their massive efforts and unyielding generosity (both theirs and that of those who support them) they managed to raise a surreal $366,050 during this year’s Bluefin Blowout to help #endalz. That’s more than half a million in just two years alone….not to mention the six previous tournaments! I am forever, completely in awe of what they do and by the support that others give to them. Those who give gather. These people could move mountains.

Thirty years ago Gloucester, Massachusetts was home to one of the best Bluefin Tuna tournaments in New England. So when my good friends Rob Bouley and Joe Boreland brought up the idea for a big tournament, I knew it was time to bring all tuna fanatics back to America’s Oldest Seaport for the Lyon-Waugh Auto Group First Annual 2012 BLUEFIN BLOWOUT!
Our home base at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort is the premier location to access the tuna fishing grounds north to Ipswich Bay, east to Jeffrey’s Ledge and south to Stellwagen Bank. Our mission is to gather commercial and recreational, experienced and greenhorn, young enthusiasts and old salts together for a weekend full of huge prizes, great bands, big parties and amazing fishing!
Nothing compliments two days of competitive fishing like three days of music, food, cocktails and fish stories. The feel of a big tournament will be in the air with the suspense of the day’s cash Calcutta. Get a chance to talk to some of the captains and mates on the new National Geographic series “Wicked Tuna” and watch as some of the biggest tuna fish of the year are weighed in right on location.
Whether you are the big cash prize winner or enjoying everything the tournament has to offer, we are excited to have you aboard with us at the most exciting tuna tournament of the year! See you at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort for the Lyon-Waugh Auto Group First Annual 2012 BLUEFIN BLOWOUT

Zack explains the fight
Heading out a couple of days ago Dave and his crew head out for an 18 hour steam of 153 miles to catch themselves a nice pay day. One 800 lber and one 650 these tuna will command a nice price in Japan.
When Dave headed out he was a bit nervous because where they have to go to catch these fish it’s a long way out and there’s no place to run and hide if a storm whips up. It is where there are warm ocean currents and cold water intersecting and it can produce nasty storms seemingly out of the blue and without much warning.
