Spearfishing Tournament this weekend....Wilmington NC

The 9th annual Aquatic Safaris tournament is this weekend June 6-8...

It is open to card carrying yellow back bubble-blowers and speedo wearing eurotrash wanna be freedivers as well...come one come all!!!

This is a fun low-key, local tournament that many of us have been doing since it's inception. I believe there are a number of SB members who will be there including: Spearchuckerz and his full boat of Obama supporters, Guttshot, Surfspearo, SeaRen and his better half, etc... I'm not sure if Capt Keith, Eward4, Wahoo!, Capt. Krunk, Pat or any of the other usual suspects will be there, but it should be a great time!!!

See this site for more details:
http://www.aquaticsafaris.com/SPTOURN1.html

And no I am not affiliated with this event in any way, just enjoy the event that these guys put on every year and it is a chance to get to see many of my VB boys, etc since I can't make it to the OMER Hatteras event.

You can register at Aquatic Safaris on Wrightsville Ave or at the Capt's meeting Thursday. Even if you aren't competing swing by and have a beer and talk politics with KW.

Head,

Rember the short fat tank is for propane, dont breath that one- it may make you sick. Like Mr. Patron.

Re: Spearfishing Tournament this weekend....Wilmington NC

I wasn't planning on having to dive...I have been collecting large specimens of each category and storing them in my freezer. This weekend we will head to the drop and deep jig for snowy grouper, when we get them near the boat I will jump in and shoot them and claim a new freediving WR. I have been studying South FL tournament ethics and this is all kosher. Please stop giving me $#!T or I will not vote for your beloved Obama.

Kelly- you and DJ gonna weigh in the Grommets?
I heard there was going to be an "Oops, now I'm a Daddy" category.

Now that's good stuff!!! DJ has been getting schooled by tropical fish in Tavarua the past couple of weeks...so he might be relegated to diaper duty when he returns...that or divorce. Ry...there's always room for you on Dirty Bird, I doubt it will be a family friendly environment though so DJ and K-Dub might not be able to hang. He he he.
