    PEPE'S Awesome Fish Tacos!


    A word from our Big Fish Director

    Well, it’s that time again. As you know, this is our biggest tournament of the year. The Seminar will be on the 3rd of August, (1 dollar fresh fish tacos) and the Captain's Meeting on the 25th of August. Fishing will be for two days and the banquet on the 27th of August.

    It is a lot of work to put on such a great and well-known event, so we are looking for people to help on the committee. Please contact Rhonda at any meeting or event and let her know that you can donate some of your time. The event is a fund raiser to take kids fishing, so you can feel proud knowing that you contributed to such a great cause.

    We have been working hard to bring you a great event. This year is our 34th Anniversary of the Big Fish Tournament. The tournament starts off with a seminar and will be held on August 3rd with Pepe's fish tacos.

    We will be outdoors in our regular area, so show up early and have some drinks. Don't forget, Pepe and Crew will be hard at work creating those mouthwatering fish tacos and salsa. It has been great that Pepe is willing to do this for us each year. We have had some great donations of fresh fish from a lot of you (thanks), so it will be freshly caught meat on those tacos.

    Next will be the tournament. It starts off with the captains meeting at the Wave on August 25th (mandatory for all captains to attend). The tournament fishing starts after the captains meeting at 7:01pm and ends at 10am Sunday. It looks like we are going to have one of the best years of fishing we have seen in a long time.The banquet will be on Sunday August 27th starting at 12pm at Silver Gates Yauchet Club. It is really going to be great food and a fantastic raffle. It is open to the public, so bring a friend.
