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
Just a reminder that the Heart Tournament Early Bird sign-up date is Sept. 2, 2015. To be eligible for the Early Bird prize your entry must be post marked on or before Sept. 2, 2015.
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.
Hope to see you all there,
John E Pye, Mission Bay Marlin Club President 2015
