As the Harley Davidson’s Fly down US1 through Islamorada, and swimmers trek out to Alligator Light House and back, a group of forty five boats set themselves for two incredible days of fishing in the Mako Funaments, Presented by Bass Pro, and a host of other sponsors, Offshore Angler, Simrad, Papa’s PILAR, RCI Group, Coca-Cola, StarBrite, Penn, CCA Florida, Tacklewebs, NU-ICE, Columbia, Maui Jims, Mercury, and Rapala. They went to sea both Backcountry and Offshore and did battle with a Myriad of Denison’s of the deep. It was all smiles on everybody’s face as each day they returned to World Wide Sportsman for the fest ivies delicious food and great comradery. It was a total good time for all the attendees’ lots smiles on lotsa faces. The winners were showered with beautiful artwork as well as countless other gifts for their accomplishments during the two days of fishing and the raffle afterwards was just over the top everybody was a winner! And in another venue several of World Wide Guides fished in the Herman Lucerne Tournament well, they all did well, but our very own Captain Larry Sydnor taking First Place with Captain Tony Horsley hot on his heels. I keep telling everybody that I am docked here at world Wide with a group of titans in the industry what a great compilation of fishing guides. I want to add a persona note: My hat is totally off to the organizers of the Mako Funaments. Their tireless efforts made a large group of people Very Very Happy. Islamorada Fish Company’s Management and Staff put on three days of wicked good grub thirst quenching libations all with smiles on their faces and did not miss a beat even though during the tournament banquet there was a wedding and two full bars and a dining room full of patrons. Way To Go!! World Wide with three Hundred plus people in the Tournament, the Wedding, Marina Full, Restaurant full, parking lot full, giant tent in yard, Mako boats parked everywhere and a store full of patrons and they never missed a beat. Kudos to every one of you, and lastly, Thank you Mako Boats your Staff, your Boats, these Tournaments and everything you do with and for your owners and the public a Great Job Well Done! From the Bottom of my Heart, Thank you Very Much!
