This past weekend, Bluewater Babes Fish for A Cure celebrated their 10th Anniversary with a bang- literally! The usual festivities at Sailfish Marina were not only over the top, but the series of events culminated with a grand fireworks show over Peanut Island.
When it comes to fishing, SPICED RUM's Sherry Beswick took first place Kingfish with 42.7 lbs, Stacy Maderal of LUNATICO took second with 20.5 lbs, and Gwen Belcher of PRETTY WORK won third with 19.3 lbs. Tasha Ford of TEMPTATION won first place dolphin with 20.2 lbs, Tina Martin of THANKS GIRLS won second with 15.6 lbs, and Shannon Discount won third with 15.3 lbs. Billfish Champion Angler went to Emily Riemer of DAYSEA with 2 sailfish releases, Billfish Champion Boat went to DAYSEA with 3 sails released on time, and Heaviest Meatfish went to Shelby Gore of CAROLINA GENTLEMEN with a 16.9 lb blackfin tuna. No wahoo were weighed.
It's no secret that fishing isn't the main event of this all-female angler tournament, so here are some highlights of the boat decorations and cocktail contest.
