Default 2017 White Marlin Open Thread

WMO season is upon us. Who's fishing this year? Who's going down to the scales next week to watch the weigh ins? Will any THT vendors will be there?

I plan to be down at Harbour Island next weekend and then a couple days during the week. I wont be fishing, just drinking and hanging out around the scales like I always do. Hope to meet and greet some THT folks while I'm down there.

I will be there all week. No fishing, booze cruising some.

Harborside for lunch and clamming at various shallow spots.

I will run in there one day to meet the international marine folks.

Won't be fishing, my buddy is though, so I'll be stopping by. Also have some work down there. Probably stop by the scales a few days.

Are vendors usually set up and selling merch on Tuesday? Also, I have never gone earlier in the day before weigh ins, but plan to this week. Are the vendors there mid-day?

Very nice. I've seen your boat down pretty frequently. I'm down in harbor island almost every weekend during the summer (my folks own a place out around the gas dock). I'll be sure to say hi the next time I see you. Good luck this week!

They'll be selling t-shirts and WMO merch all week.

I'll be fishing the WMO this year on the Spring Mix II out of the fishing center.

Hope to catch a drink with some of you guys during the week! Good luck to everyone.

Good luck to anyone who's fishing today. Hopefully it lays down a little bit. Forecast is saying 3-5 early, building to 5-8.
