Day 1 At The 2019 Poor Girl’s Open

Day 1 At The 2019 Poor Girl’s Open

Day one at the Poor Girl’s Open at Bahia Marina finished up just a bit ago and for only having 28 boats fish it was a very productive day at the scales.  There are 183 boats in this year’s event, which is a record by more than 40 boats, and if the boat that wins first place releases is across the board they are looking at just shy of $140,000.  The tournament will also donate over $100,000 to the American Cancer Society which is an awesome thing in itself.  Here’s who’s winning what after the first day of fishing.

3rd Place     M.R. Ducks     27.2 Lbs

2nd Place     Bar South     47.8 Lbs

Here are some other great shots from the first day of fishing from Dave Messick of Hooked on OC.  Thanks Dave!!

Away from the tournament Captain Jason Mumford of Lucky Break Charters had a great day of fishing the back bays putting some keeper flounder in the boat and putting some smiles on his anglers’ faces.

I got some pics of some GIANT rays that Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing put his shooters on last night.  Captain Marc found a hound fish and butterfly rays of 116 and 147 pounds.

Big Bird Cropper put his buddy Brian from Canada on a couple of nice keeper flounder today while fishing the back bay.
