10th Annual UF ME Rinker BCN Alumni Summer Classic

July 18, 2019 4:09 pm By:

This is the weekend on the long awaited 10th Annual UF BCN Summer Classic fishing tournament. We have been involved on the committee since year one and Captain Tim is the Tournament Rules Director.

Here is another shot of another big snook , that coupled with the40 incher on the cover photo, almost won the tournament for us! Again, big snook, and not so big redfish always seems to slip in and cost us the top spot. But this tournament is always a blast, and fishing against high quality fishermen is what it is all about. Oh yeah, and making a little money for UF doesn’t hurt! Go Gators!

Every summer, we get together a field of championship level captains and competitors for one of the most challenging and competitive tournaments in SW Fla. This year is no different. In fact we have 34 teams entered to fish, and among them several Rolex Cup Winners, Redfish Cup Winners, and captains and anglers that have consistently won some serious tournaments around SW Fla and the state.

Here is my long time partner Captain Todd Geroy with a big 36″ snook we parlayed into a nice fish a couple of years ago.
Every year the Redfish seem to bite us in the butt…little guys like this don’t win these kind of tournaments!

The competition will revolve around catching the two longest snook, and the 2 longest redfish. Period. No line class limits, no bait or tackle restrictions. This is a tournament that is all about big fish.

We will all be at the Captains meeting on Friday July 19th at 7pm at the Tavern on the Bay in downtown Naples, and the weigh in activities, awards ceremonies and raffles start at 3:30 pm at the same place. Hope to see ya’ll out there!
