Not much new on the horizon but a lot of wraggling in the lockout talks.
Mentioned I was in Costa Rica with as few X-NFL players a few weeks ago. We had Jake Grove (Virginia Tech-Raiders-Dolphins) who just left the League after and injury with the Dolphins formerly with the Raiders…and the only reason I let him on my boat was he was with the Dolphins last or he’d have had to swim out to catch fish.
Big Dave Rimington of Nebraska, Outland trophy winner and the host of the Rimington Trophy each year given to the top offensive Center in Division 1 NCAA football is the chair and CEO of the Boomer Esiason Foundation. Dave’s staff did a great job putting together this CF (Cystic Fibrosis fundraiser) that raised money for kids in Costa Rica. 17 boat entrys and a absolutely wonderful tournament was held.
Tons of fish caught and Mike Shaad a former Eagle and Ram was also there with myself. I emceed the event and it looks like we have a new home for the future of this tournament and many of you who have never Deep sea fished or caught a billfish of any kind HAVE to come down and join the fun next year. We were at the Marina Pez Vela and stayed at the Hotel Mariposa in Quepos, Costa Rica, both have great websites you need to check out. GREAT place to vacation and catch the fish of a lifetime. Luna Tours handled all the boats and arrangements and Jerry the owner is the only guy to call in Quepos for fishing.
Anyway, greatd cuase and a lot of fun in a quick weekend of catching some wonderful sailfish and even a few Blue Marlin were caught. I’ll keep you posted on when they set the dates for next year and you can see years of the event on my facebook if you like that kind of stuff just friend me there and you’ll actually see years of destinations around the world as you all know I’m a fishing nut.
Headed to Abaco, Bahamas, Marsh Harbour for a bonefish tournament next week so, I’ll keep you posted on the off-season fishing ).. You should come join me.
