  • Mako Madness '05 Pics - Funament First Year!

    Here are some photos from our 1st Mako Madness gathering in Destin Florida. The fishing wasn't great, but we learned alot and most importantly had a great time on the water. It was great to meet these guys and hopefully next year we'll have a few more boats involved, as well as a few more kids getting involved.

    You'll see in the pics that its such a beautiful place to do some boating and enjoy the sun. I have a keen eye for Mako hulls, so there are a few boats in these pics that weren't accociated with our gathering, but maybe in future years we can get them involved. Except the Law Enforcement Mako... but it was a nice looking Mako hull and I had to take a pix.[]
