The Nelson's and Stauffers settling in for a beautiful evening at El Pelicano for the awards dinner.
Does that look like the face of a guy that just caught his first blue marlin. Way to go Bob
Lots of schwag on hand from Lowrance, Cannon Downriggers, Costa Sunglasses, KAST Extreme Fishing Gear, Grundens, Sportco/Outdoor Emporium, and Redington
El Pelicano had a great menu ready for the group. My favorite...grilled fresh mahi mahi. Wow!
Team Bite the Big One jumped into 1st place on day one and didn't look back. Way to go guys!
Team Dragin Balls wrapped up second place in the Billfish Bonanza. With two women on the boat they had a slight advantage though
Team Lowrance made a strong run at the end but fell up one fish short of 2nd place. They had 11 shots the last day and landed 4 sailfish. Remarkably...Mike Campbell from Lowrance was in the hot seat for every hookup on Day 3, including a zesty little blue marlin that tore up the gear before ousting the hook. Pretty wild
Laurie Andersen was lucky enough to walk away with the Grand Prize in the Billfish Bonanza....winning a brand spankin' new Lowrance HDS8 in the awards dinner raffle. Mike Campbell from Lowrance/Simrad was on hand to do the honors. Thank you Lowrance for your support of the Outdoor Line
Nick, Mike, and Bob from Team Lowrance
Larry Stauffer won the killer Ace's Layer from KAST Extreme fishing gear. Might want to watch this company, as they will be releasing a whole new line of apparel, waders, and other fishing goodies in the months to come
And then he grabs one of the awesome Gage waterproof bags from Grundens
Lorrie Andersen won the Penn Fathom reel from Sportco/Outdoor Emporium
Here goes a fine pair of polarized sunglasses from Costa
Another Gage waterproof bag gets raffled off to a lucky winner. We also raffled off two of Redington's awesome soft tackle bags at the event. I was checking those bags out and think they'd make a great diaper bag. Kind of a one-bag-does-it-all kind of a deal if you know what I mean
More sunglasses from Costa...we gave away three Sunglass/Hat/Shirt combo's in all. Thanks Costa!
Another lucky angler gets an Ace's Layer from KAST. These light hoodies are sweet...I'll be picking up a XXL soon
Tim McGuire share's some of the 1st place love with photographer Collin Carlson. Tim's sportin' one of the sweet shirts that the folks at KAST sent along for the event
