Awards Banquet Photos
Wow! What an outstanding evening and event! Tom Ham’s Lighthouse Restaurant was a fantastic new venue and a beautiful setting for our banquet! The food, I had steak which was excellent and cooked just right but the salmon and chicken were also yummy according to the others at my table! The servers were outstanding and seemed to take a real interest in making sure we were well cared for. Dan and I have got to get back there and try the dining room overlooking our beautiful harbor. The view of the bay and downtown city was unbelievable with cruise ships sailing by. It was great to see all the other ladies there and get to meet so many new folks. We all had a good time comparing fishing stories.
I’m amazed at how much fishing knowledge there is in our club, not only the fellows but us ladies too! I hope everyone will continue to come to future events and provide support for our club. The whole evening ran very smoothly starting with the presentation to the American Heart Association which is near to our hearts and we all were amazed by the speaker’s testimony! All of the awards for the various tournaments, largest species, Fish of the Month, First Fish Flags and Oscars winners were great fun. Hopefully this will be an even better fishing season coming up. I think it is going to be a great year for the club and can’t wait for the next event!
Best wishes, Ann Thompson
The 42nd Annual Charity Heart Marlin Tournament benefiting the American Heart Association and MBMC will be held September 10, 2016. Lots of warm water and fish out there, so get your entries in! Early bird entries are due in by September 1, 2016. Click to download Entry Form. Full information is on the Tournament page.
Mickey Cooper, on a boat out of Southwestern Yacht Club (SWYC), caught a 48.10 lb wahoo on October 3, 2015. It was a SWYC club record that lasted but just a few days as someone else boated a 57 lb wahoo. The wahoo bite this year has been excellent, with other MBMC club members also boating wahoo, including crews on Scott’s Johnny captained by Mike Bratton and on Encounter captained by Ken Yasuda.
Very warm water has been holding, so make sure to drag some wired up wahoo bombs!
John Pye, MBMC President

We currently have 12 boats and 36 anglers entered. The fishing has been quite good for marlin recently and I feel it will only get better as we get closer to Tournament day. So, sign up and join us for a fun/competitive day of fishing on Saturday Sept 12 and the charity banquet on Sun. Sept. 13. It’s all for a good cause and gives us all a chance to enjoy the competition and fellowship in the sport we all enjoy.
