Exclamation 2010 Big Bang! Open OFFICIAL Photos of the Weigh-In Bonanza!

The 2010 Big Bang! Open (BBO) went very well with close to 200 attendees at the Sunday event in the great venue we used last year.

It was a fish bonanza!


The weigh-in operation went smoothly thanks to our wonderful volunteer crew headed up by John Biggs. We had two lines with scales and two computers networked into that fabulous database Frank built.

John will post up the results soon. There were some outstanding fish weighed in this year.

Enjoy the weigh-in photos shot by Len Pepe (Gradyman). Len was using my camera, so he was unable to do any of his great color correction and image enhancement on these.

I am still processing the people and awards photos. They should be up by tomorrow morning.

They are now up right here:

Talking Re: 2010 Big Bang! Open OFFICIAL Photos of the Weigh-In Bonanza!

Please feel free to add any photos you took of the weigh-in or on your boats during the competition. Here are some sent in from that monster cubera-killing boat Shark Tales. Chip's cubera ended up quite bigger than Kevin's. Hmmmm....

There were lots of big fish brought in this year in several categories.

Here is Anthony's big trigger. Nice work!

This is a photo on the boat of Kevin's 59 pound fish. But, it was bested by Chip's 75 pound Cubera Snapper at his feet. Such is life in the big ocean.

Do you guys have any boat pictures of the AJ or ones you shot at the weigh-in that you can put on this thread?

Apparently Len did not shoot photos of the AJ at the event as I put up all his weigh-in photos.

I am holding back on the awards ceremony images until Biggsy gets the results posted which should be shortly. Sorry about that. Tony

Sorry guys, between shooting all the other things, weighing in my own fish and getting my family situated (1st time coming ) I was not in the right place at the right time for that shot...really sorry about that.
