Hello everybody, I’m more than proud to inform you about the next TBF captain-trophy winner for most tagged and released atlantic Blue Marlin in 2008: Captain Bonze, fishing on Happy Hooker 1! He is the third of the Happy Hooker fishing team after Captain Simon and myself, to win that trophy! Our very best congratulations to him! Here is what the TBF sent him a day ago:
I am pleased to inform you that you are the top tagging captain for Atlantic blue marlin for 2008. Attached is a letter of congratulations with information about our awards ceremony which will take place on February 12 at the Miami Boat Show. In recognition of your achievement, we would like to provide you with an award. If you can attend the event or cover the cost of shipping, we will provide you with a trophy manufactured by King Sailfish Mounts, otherwise we can ship you a certificate for your display. To be eligible for an award, TBF membership is required. Membership levels start at $25 per year. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or considerations.
