Key West Drambuie Fishing Tournament

Filed under: Uncategorized — CaptainJoe @ 2:45 pm

Well, the fishing tournament is over. I believe there were 38 boats in it this year and only one caught a marlin. Estimated weight was 400lbs. (Wow what a big boy) We didn’t win, but a Captain from the Gulf Coast did and we are happy for him and his anglers. They have had a very hard time of it. We did catch a 27 lb dolphin, but lost out to a 33 lber. The threat of tropical storm Bonnie made all the boats stay in one day (the storm turned more north and we did not get it. It turned out to be a beautful day, but you can never trust storms) The 2010 Hemingway Days coincided with the tournament and one of the big events is the Ernest Hemingway look alike contest. All the look alikes compete in a “Running of the Bulls” race. This is a hoot as these gentlemen are not spring chickens. Stay safe and warm and dry.
