Despite the fact that the Mobile Big Game Fishing Club has officially cancelled its 2010 Memorial Day Tournament, a group of fisherman including both MBGFC members and non-club members would like to put together a fun fishing event on Memorial Day weekend.
Conditions are favorable to the East and this area is not currently affected by the NOAA closure areas nor oil spill. This will be an informal "Cash Awards" event with the following categories: Dolphin, Wahoo, Tuna and Billfish Catch and Release only
5/28 (Friday) 4:00-6:30 PM: Registration, "Cash Awards" entry - Cash bar will be provided
6:30 PM - Captain's Meeting, boats may depart after Captain's Meeting
5/29 (Saturday): Fishing
5/30 (Sunday) 2:00-4:00 PM: Weigh In Results (Boats must clear Pass by 4:00 PM)
The MBGFC has agreed to allow its facilities at Orange Beach Marina to be the headquarters for this event. Whether you intend to fish or not, you are invited to the Friday gathering and the Sunday weigh-in (a cash bar will be provided). The Club facilities will be open all weekend for those that wish to stop by for a visit.
The grounds have just undergone extensive landscaping and lighting, please come see it for yourself. We wanted to inform you of this scheduled event and hope you will consider fishing it. Of course, this event is contingent on the oil spill conditions and NOAA closure areas as they exist next weekend.
