December 2021 President’s Message

Seasons Greetings to all club members,

I hope this message finds you well after a healthy and happy holiday. This time of year brings us to the end of another great fishing season. 

On the fishing front, I have little to report on the local fishery. Some local deep drop Swordfish have been reported but aside from that fishing has been standard for the winter. 

Special acknowledgement goes out to Jeff Zachery for a pair of fall Swordfish catches of 218 and 251 pounds!!  Well done Jeff!

Fish of the month for November remained unclaimed. 


The MBMC Awards Banquet for 2021 angler and boat awards is scheduled for January 29, 2022, at Andre’s restaurant in Bay Park. Those that were able to attend the Marlin seminar this year can attest to this venue having great accommodations with plenty of space for all those that wish to attend. We hope to see you all there! 

Members: $30/person / Jr. Members (16 yrs and under): Free
Non-Members: $30/person / 16 yrs and under non-members: $10/child

RSVP Deadline is Saturday, January 22, 2022.  Details are in the attached flyer.

One last reminder to All FOM participants: Any catch made with the intent to qualify for FOM must be caught on IGFA tackle and in accordance with those MBMC exceptions to IGFA rules listed in the MBMC Fishing Rules and Regulations

Wishing you all the happiest of New Years as we move into the new year.

Tight lines,

Shane Hurt

(MBMC President – 2021)
