Default Big Rock Week

Who is going to be down? Will be going down sat 6/10 and leaving 6/17. Will only have the skiff so all fishing will be inshore this week.

We'll be down the 9th through the 16th. We'll be in the skiff since the port engine on the seacat decided to crap out.

Good luck to all you guys fishing the tournament. Make sure everyone on the boat has a valid fishing license!

I always take off work this week because it is my favorite time of year! I'm too poor to enter the tournament, but I fish as if I'm in it - helicopters taking pics and all! 2 years ago I caught citation dolphin around 42# and it would've won that days gamefish dolphin money...which was $2000 I think. I told my wife and she just laughed and said don't even think about it! Maybe we can come up with a THT team entry for next year?!

My favorite week of the year. I listen to the tournament radio all day while I'm at work.

Nice pics! I'm drooling at my desk.
I'm taking the week off, as my nephew is visiting and has never seen a tournament like this, so bring in a good fish for him to see!!

I have talked about entering just the dolphin category as its way less to enter and still pays $100K for the biggest dolphin for the week.

It is also my favoriate week of the year to be at my desk. What sucks is when some very inconsiderate people choose to have a job bid on one of the days and require me to travel to Atl on Thursday.

Headed down the 9th and coming back when we feel like it. Inshore here as well but that's OK. Need to bring some Hispanics back for a fish fry.

Is it me or in the participant list a little thin this year. In years past I haven't paid close attention the qty but thought there were normally more than 30 boats.

Either way we'll be down to watch on 9-11. :-)
