Pure Jackpot 99
Fishing Tournament Report
|Report submitted by Alan Simcock, KBC member
The KBC "Pure
Jackpot 99" was a first for the club, masterminded by club President Sonny
Dalde. Sonny wanted an early tournament with no frills, no tee shirts, no tournament
books, no banquet, few rules, but we did have a lovely queen Kehau Souza. Sonny
even included Aku and Kawakawa to give everyone a chance.
|Sixty-two boats sped off from
Keehi boat Harbor a 6:30am on April 24th all looking for that "big
one". The action started early with a constant stream of hook ups keeping the Radio
Angels Ella & Marlene very busy. For a while it seemed that the only fish out
there were Mahimahi with no big fish in sight.
While the Radio Angels were singing a wedding song for soon to be groom
Elton Choy (KBC VP), Elton was busy on his "POLEKE" fighting a shibi. He missed
his wedding song but the fish took the first place Ahi prize, thats what I call
"getting your priorities right." Congratulations Elton hope your wife
likes to fish.
Matt Kahapea on the "Ah Tina" was
the first to call in a big fish, and it remained the biggest all day to win first place.
Other big fish were hooked and fought, but just never made it into the boat. Buy lunchtime
the fishing had slowed down a little but picked up again in the afternoon when many more
boats managed to collect their pupus. The hookup ratio was excellent with 51 boats calling
in "hanapaa." This was a fun tournament that brought up lots of fish and also
brought together many friends with that common interest called "FISHING".
The crew of Ah Tina with the winner!
