If your on them and know where they are, that Calcutta makes things real interesting.

Also if your mate works on a dragger.

Big money brings in the big cheats.

But by all means, play if you dont mind.....

i'm sure the winning fish has already been caught and is sitting in someone's holding pen off their dock. probably being fattened up on local squid as we speak.

either way, this IS the best party of the summer and an absolute blast of an event. been fishing it for 10+ years and wouldn't dream of missing it.

Unfortunately we won't be able to make it this year due to family graduation obligations. First time in years. Oh well, good luck to all, you never know!

I hate cheats. Hopefully they have a lie detector test.

I have been fishing this for the past 5 years it is a blast. I also have fished with big game several times and they make all winners take a polygraph. And they have disqualified people before. This is a stand up event.

This is one of the best tournament going. Typically, we drink enough beer to compensate for the entry fee.

I've always wanted to do this tournament, but the above cheating statements just steer me away from it. I think I'll just have fun fishing with the guys instead and avoid the tournament all together.

i agree it is a fun tournament and a great party. i did mention my concerns to brian at a fishing show and he assured me polygraphs for all winners. although i did not mention names to brian you will notice a few "regulars" on the leader board year after year, some being commercial guys.

since my boat is down for repairs for a couple weeks i will not be having a team in this year but would not hesitate in the future.

cheers!

Big Game runs a clean event.

besides, everyone knows it's all about the Shit Fish anyway.

I think where there is big money there is corruption at all levels..........that being said we donate every year!! Would not miss it for the world as it's my father's day weekend thing to with my son since he was 9 years old

I will say I liked it when it was smaller and held over in Charlestown

victims of their own success...

I too miss the club house in Green Hill. pretty sure the neighborhood doesn't though.

I'm sure it's a matter of time before Pt. View has issues, if they don't already.
