    "That has been established several times now. yes its a 113pounder plicked off the pinacles near turks and caicos. Old news... Thank you for sharing but this thread is about those who will be fishing the very real smackdown with its very real Playboy Playmate handing out very real prizes with the very real grandson of Ernest Hemingway writing a very real article for a very real magazine about very real fish going up a very real scale. thank you... " ???...

    so does anyone get to catch the playmate? news worthy? or will somebody think it's not the real grandson???.. I know it's about you but that is a real wahoo pic.. :) good luck on your "very real" tourny..

    You miss the point... Yes the fish is real. That never in dispute. It was suggested that we claimed that the fish was some how ours and that we were taking credit for it. That was not accurate. We have no need for false hype with all the positive things we have going for us. We stand on our own merrits. First tourney was great success and this one will be even better.
    It's not about me. The staff at Bimini Big Game Club have bent over backwards to make this thing work. The real heros are the sponsors and the anglers who participate. This is designed around their desires. They ARE the tournament... not me...

    The hoo/ charter set out of mothballs and ready for action...
    Inflatable set to explore, carry me to the flats and go get some sneaky baits now and then...
    Tourney goodies clogging my bridge deck... All to be given away...

    Got ya covered... Can't wait! Lot of traffic on phone and on line this morn. Management returns to island today to get in their computer and up date me on who's added to their list... I can see the desk will be busy over a couple days...

    Steady stream of entries today. Some expected some out of the clear blue... It was asked if sign up on island is ok. Cash or card is fine... You may want to at least sign on line to lock in a good room and slip. They are starting to go quick... We should have enough space but just to err on the side of caution... Also saves us a big traffic jam at the desk and allows us to pre pull your kits shirts and stuff. Thanks!
