Sunday Fishtackular; Scraps from the Fish Table

The bowfishing rig has been mostly used to shoot and retrieve trash floating in the canal. Though I have yet to shoot any invasive species of trash fish, I have become the top killer of trash in the Upper Keys.

Plastic bags and floating coconuts have been my main quarry. But, I am looking forward to hunting Tilapia in the freshwater canals of the agricultural Everglades flood districts

Big Bucks Billfish! Join the White Marlin Open

There is still time to register this weekend for the world’s largest billfish tournament which will be held from August 4 till August 8 in Ocean City. Boats from Key Largo all the way north to New Jersey will depart from the Harbour Island Marina for a work week of fishing that will culminate with an awards ceremony at the Clarion Hotel on August 9.

Do not expect such major money from just registering with the minimum thousand dollar entry fee. Captains and crews who put additional wagers in multiple calcuttas earn the really big bucks if they can put the biggest White Marlin, Blue Marlin, tuna, dolphin, Wahoo or shark on the dock.

I also seized the Crown Royal bag of shells for additional ammo.
