26th Annual MBC Owners Tournament in Islamorada Another Big Success
/ October 18, 2013
September 28, 2013 – Hewes, Maverick, Pathfinder and Cobia owners once again converged on the Florida Keys the last Thursday in September to fish the annual MBC Owners Tournament in Islamorada. Forty- two teams came from as far as Texas to catch everything from blackfin tuna to tailing redfish. Though full of seasoned anglers – some have been fishing the event for 18 years running- the weekend, like all MBC owners’ events, was as much about meeting new owners and catching up with friends as catching fish. Awards were handed out for high point Junior Champion, Ladies Champion and overall Master Angler. But the most coveted prize was raffle tickets. The tickets, earned in proportion to each anglers catch totals, were drawn for numerous prizes including Costa Del Mar Sunglasses, a Yamaha prop, a 8 foot Signature Series Power Pole and many other items.
Next year’s dates are already set for September 25 –September 28. In addition, plans are in place for a MBC Owners Tournament in Texas in April 2014 and a repeat of the June 2013 Beaufort, South Carolina event.
