Hey Jason,
Are you on a job overseas? I really look forward to it next year. You should get Conner or Ryder on your team.

Hopefully, you were able to sneak some gear along and get a couple days off to spear! Get in touch when you're back.

Re: Blue Water Odyssey Tournament, Dana Point - Aug 11-13

Hi John,

I agree. It seems like everyday now I'm getting texted photos of nice BlueFin, Yellowtail & Seabass. We were out on Saturday & my friend Max (14 years old) pulled a 34 lb yellowtail on his second time diving California.

You should come down & rally a team. I have good divers that need a captain too, if you are short a crew.

It will be an exciting even! The Sponsors are filling in...I have wetsuits, spearguns, carbon fins, carbon polespear, reels...over $5000 in prizes and growing. With the BFT limited to 1 fish, it will give everyone a chance to hunt their favorite fish & stay competitive. We will have a map/grid with locations labeled (A1, A2..etc.) and divers are require to call in their fish to the committee boat with the fish type and approximate size to keep things interesting There will be a weight in on Saturday 4-7 at the Dana point launch ramp so teams can gauge where they're at and strategize for Sunday.

Sign up is on the Tournament page. .

Divers w/out boats...you might consider hiring a charter out of Dana Point, or renting from somewhere like https://www.harborboatrentals.com/

We contacted Harbor Boat Rentals and they still have some boats available & connections with other boats if they run out.

For Captains w/ boats, we also check with the guest docks at Dana Point and there are slips open.

For any interested sponsors please PM me with your email and I will forward you the donation details.

Re: Blue Water Odyssey Tournament, Dana Point - Aug 11-13

Ya it's turning out to be a really exiting event, especially considering we've only had a few weeks to create it. I've had a lot of amazing support! We are over $9000 in prizes and raffles now. The water is warming up, paddies are holding & tuna are around! I can't wait to see the fish that turn up from the contestants!

Hope you guys get on the big ones this weekend. If I wasn't in CO I'd be there to slay another 100lb+ blue fin
