In 2008, Doug Osborn caught a Texas Division Club Record Blue Marlin weighing in at 518 pounds!
Participate in the Club's 2011 Year Long Awards Program!
Current Club Award results can be found at Awards Program.
The wind has been blowing and seas have been big, which has left the year long points and weighed fish categories wide open. The ultimate winners have yet to be caught. Carry your verification forms and use one of the Club's official weigh sites and certified scales to get on the board. Click here to download verification forms, review the Awards Program rules and regulations, as well as note the location of our four weigh stations.
Rules Reminder: Anglers, when you are about to release your winning billfish and are videotaping, remember to leave all billfish in the water. Raising or boating a billfish for a video or picture will disqualify you.
International Division - As of 6/1/11 Buddy Schultz' boat "Gotcha" is leading the Top Private Boat division with a whopping 30,200 points, John Richardson is leading the Top Male Angler division with 9,700 points and Alicia Deerman is leading the Top Female Angler division with 1,400 points.
