Professional King Mackerel Angling Team
Contender 35ST with triple 350hp Mercury Verados
October 28th, 2019
WOW, it has been quite awhile since I have had either the time or the inclination to update the FishDancer website. It seems that social media is beginning to replace the actual website experience for our team, but I have a commitment to keep this site going and updated.
2019 has been an interesting year for Team FishDancer. It began in Key West, FL in January where we scaled a 42.65 pound fish at the Meat Mayhem PRO event. We moved next to Palm Beach where we got skunked in the PRO event and weighed a 28.15 pound fish for the Open event with Meat Mayhem. Next up was Ft. Meyers where we scaled a 19.2 pound fish in the PRO and finally we fished St. Augustine where we again got skunked. We qualified for the SKA Nationals in 2020 by weighing a fish in the SKA sanctioned Meat Mayhem event in Palm Beach and fishing in two SKA sanctioned events in 2019. We are less than sure we will fish this event in 2020 but at least we have the choice.
2019 has seen the continuation of the success of tournament trails like Meat Mayhem and the continued lessening of importance of the SKA. Meat Mayhem, King of the Cape, The Kingfish Cup, KingMaster Biloxi, Wild West and others are now the dominant force in Kingfish tournaments and anglers have many choices to make deciding when and where to fish. It looks as if Team FishDancer will remain aligned with Meat Mayhem in 2020 and will also try to fish some of the local SKA events and the KingMaster Biloxi event. This should give us a wide playing field to compete in with a schedule that will begin in January and end sometime in October.
On the equipment front Team FishDancer continues to work with our long time sponsors, Mercury Marine, Loadmaster Trailers, Contender Boats and RayMarine electronics. We have upgraded the FishDancer's propulsion system adding triple Mercury Verado 400s to the transom and thus far they have been great. Looking forward to a few more MPH and MPG while we fish the circuit in 2020. We have put our Mercury Verado 350 triple set up for sale - for details see the side bar on the right.
So we enter into the down season with many things to do to prepare for 2020. Land logistics to be made, rigs to be twisted, reels to be respooled and equipment to be checked. We will keep you apprised of our progress right here at www.FishDancer.net
