Dear Fellow Anglers, Crews and Guests
It is my great pleasure to extend a warm welcome to the Pelican Yacht Club's 33rd Annual Invitational All Billfish Tournament, which begins on the 8th of January and runs through the 12th of 2013
Incredible fishing is what best describes this year's event with a record 734 sailfish caught and released by our fleet of 29 boats!
Our top boat Boneshaker captained by Scotty Fawcett with anglers Joe Lehner, Van Wichers, and Skyler Wichers released a record 57 sailfish in their three days on the water. Runner up Lo Que Sea skippered by the legendary Glenn Cameron led his anglers Tony Huerta and Billy Gingell to a second place finish with 41 releases and a personal and tournament daily best of 27 releases - a truly outstanding effort by these two teams and all the participants. A big thanks to all the Pelican staff for their long hours and superb service. The food was again the best of any tournament. Thanks to our acclaimed tournament artist Don Ray for his support.
.It is our continued goal to make sure that you always have a great time with us here on the Treasure Coast. We want to make our tournament your favorite tournament! I believe the atmosphere of our club and facilities, our dedicated staff, superb dining, and great fishing all contribute to the unique opportunity for old fashioned camaraderie amongst fishermen that we enjoy here so much and find so rare and special these days. Our tournament will be the memorable experience that will make you want to come back and join us every year.
Look forward to you joining us for the first time or again next year
