    First Annual ClassicMako.com Tournament and Cookout

    The first annual ClassicMako.com Fishing Tournament and Get Together is scheduled Friday May 13 and Saturday May 14. A captains meeting will be held Thursday night, but is not mandatory for those who wish to pre-register. Below you will find everything you need to know. Hope to see you there!

    Hotel:

    Quality Inn Bayside, 322 Miracle Strip Parkway, Fort Walton Beach, Florida. 800.4CHOICE or 850-275-0300 www.choicehotels.com

    The hotel has several waterfront rooms (reserve EARLY!) and some with kitchenettes. We have a special rate of $89 per night, but you must mention the Mako Get Together. Once the dock is re-built (I have been assured that it will be complete by May) it will hold 8 – 9 boats in the slips. Others may tie up along the dock or Mediterranean style off the beach. There is a nice beach but it is shallow. I do recommend tilting your engines up when coming in from the channel to both the hotel and Liza Jackson Park. I would go slow and look out for submerged hurricane debris as a caution.

    Rooms MUST be booked before April 28th to receive the special rate!!! After that time all rooms go back to the normal rate of $119.00 per room.

    Boat Ramp:

    Liza Jackson park, next to the hotel: http://www.destin-ation.com/fortwalt...photogallery3/

    Alternate boat dockage: Brooks Bridge Marina and Dry Storage. They have wet and dry slips and have agreed to store boats on the outside or inside racks at a special rate of $1/foot per day. Their number is 850-243-7861 and you must reference the Mako Get Together. They also have fuel. Contact person: Bill Joudry, manager.

    FISHING REPORTS (What’s biting)

    Also check out the current Half Hitch report the week before you come.

    http://www.halfhitch.com/alsdefault.asp

    Fishing should be good this time of the year and bait should be very plentiful in the pass. Definitely make sure you have a couple of different sabiki rigs in different hook sizes and colors. Larger hooks for hardtails, and smaller ones for cigar minnows and herring. The kings should be all over the place and can be caught on live, dead or artificial baits. Red Snapper season will have been in for almost a month so most inshore spots will have been hit pretty hard. The best bet for bottom fishing will probably be the edge, but you can start with some of the closer spots like the Starfish or Sand dollar reef areas. May kicks off the offshore fishing and hopefully we will have some weedlines within a reasonable run. Inshore trouts and reds on the flats are heating up, but best to hit them real early or later in the day. I have caught some four pound trout within half a mile of the hotel, but I’m not telling where!!

      Awesome, Great Job Sailor!!!!

      one thing I'd like to ask. I was hoping to have my boat ready for the event but I'm not so sure anymore and may have to come boat-less. Can we start a list of confirmed boaters that has room for us potential non-boaters so we can get the pairings locked down?

        Great job Sailor. A few questions/suggestions:

        I suggest we take 80% of the fishing money and return it in winnings. Give the other 20% to ClassicMako.

        Have someone make a list of odds and end items to bring.... plastic forks (sporks... gotta love an engineering feat like that !! [88]), paper towels, trash cans/bags, etc. Maybe even call a recycle company and ask them to supply bins and they can walk away with all the proceeds in beer cans... I mean soda cans.

        Have the people bringing their boat for the tournament post how many "openings" they have to fulfill Hung's request.

        All fish weighed should be donated for ClassicMako consumption...unless it's a hardhead catfish (Louisana's finest fillet [:x)][])

        Gotta clean your own fish. Or maybe make side bets and the loser cleans the fish.... [] Anybody in. All challengers welcome. I got an electric knife you can use.... [:x)]

        Define "Junior".. 'cause if Junior means an adolescent kid, I happen to fall in that category. [] Best to have an age limit.

        Largest fish caught - sharks don't count !! []

          A good idea, but being that I want to keep the prizes as high as possible, we'll wait and see what kind of entry $$$ we have first and then take a vote to decide what percentage goes to the Club. I'm thinking more along the lines of 5-10%.

          I'll set up a thread where boat owners can post that they have openings and edit their initial post inthe thread as the spots are taken by boatless or broken boat members... like myself.

          That can happen..

            Yes - what Ring answered. [8D] I will be bringing my fish fryer and barbecue grill over to the island for the cookout. I was also going to start stocking up on bottled waters and soda for the cookout, but it will be BYOB on the Millers.

            I like the idea of the side bets. Loser cleans the fish or picks up all the trash after the cook-out. [:x)]

                  Guys/Gals - I just found out that there is a Poker run the same weekend so I would advise booking rooms as soon as possible. I searched for weeks checking to make sure that this weekend wouldn't have any other conflicts, so go figure they just annouce it.
