This past weekend was the Annual Hell's Bay Owners fishing tournament and get together out of Islamorada, Florida. It is always a great event to get everyone together to have drinks and share fish stories and also do a little competitive fishing as well! As usual when you say tournament its like the wind hears you and decides to blow. But that did not stop my recent Hells Bay owners from catching fish! They stuck it out, catching over 30 reds and 20 snook. We saw tarpon and bonefish but they just were not happily eating. We set out from Anglers House Marina and head out to catch the Redfish and Snook in the glades so we could target the other species near mainland when wind calmed down. Man it was pretty intense making it across Florida Bay to the coast! We started catching fish as soon as the first line was thrown! We continued to fish the areas until we though we had enough to go after other species! We got back to mainland area and hit a few flats that hold fish and we saw a bonefish but just spooked fast! It was a great tournament! At the end of the day we all were having dinner as the awards started and it turned out the my man Luke won Top Junior Angler of the event! He was stoked! I knew we caught an abundant amount of fish and had a good chance of winning something and we did! Great first event dude!
