The XGeneration Anglers for Soldiers KDW at the Sailfish Marina in September was a top of the line inaugural event. The weather was so good that volunteers waiting at the scales did not see their first boat of anglers until 2-2:30. There were a lot of kingfish brought to the scale, a considerable number of dolphin but not a single intact wahoo. Several anglers reported wahoo that were lost at the boat. It seems that lately, any wahoo that hits the deck is assured to be a tournament winner!
The event at The Sailfish Marina began with a Captain’s Meeting and kickoff party on Friday evening. Tournament fishing began with lines in at 6:30 am. Scales opened for weigh-in at The Sailfish Marina at 1 pm. The awards ceremony and luncheon hosted by The Sailfish Marina was on Sunday afternoon.
The Forgotten Soldiers Outreach, www.forgottensoldiers.orgwas the beneficiary of the event.
