Video: St. Pete Open, 2012

I threw together some clips from last weekend’s tournament. Headed over on Friday and hooked up with John, Bing and Jim Brennan to take our shot.

We launched on Friday night and anchored in the early morning hours.
Our goal was for each of us to find a large black (“carbo”), as they call them over there.

We dove hard for most of the day and we were finding a few moderately sized gags and some other fish, but nothing we were after. As the day wore on.. we were all feeling a little down because the spots that the guys had scouted recently were coming up MT. John ran over a show and dropped Bing onto it, not knowing if there was anything worth diving… Bing pops up with a killer black (and a nice red too)..

Well I left a few parts out, but the video tells the story.

Had a great time competing, I weighed in one moderately sized red grouper and picked up a whole package of very nice slip tips from Innerloc for my “grouper prize” and also won a very nice BC with a mystery prize which was awarded for entry into the tournament. The other guys on the boat also weighed in a few fish.

Man those guys (and girls) know how to party over there! Very well run tournament!

Congratulations Bing!

Thanks John!

I still can't get over watching Bing on the stage. After a VERY long day, he is whipping that (75-lb) fish around like it weighs nothing.

..and thanks for the positive comments on the video guys.
