What a crazy week this was in early 2009! Team Rebel did in-fact compete in the tournament, just to come up short with a "broken" sandbar shark about 7ft that we didn't even measure to qualify it. But nonetheless we and everybody else fished their hearts out for 7 days in some brutal surf and cold weather, that decided not to subside until the final day of the tourney. But what makes this tourney so special in its own right, was that this was the FIRST land-based shark tourney that REQUIRED, not only to catch the sharks, but accurately measure them (fork,overall,and girth) and tag them for the sharks to be able to qualify in the competition. Making this the first tournament to incorporate all those features into one. Again hats off to Josh Jorgensen,Sean , Brooks Paxton for orchestrating this tournament, and running and filming it very efficiently. We were very glad to take part in this event, even with our lack-luster performance, we decided we would rather discuss which metal bands were more influential within the genre than catching giant sharks this week, but in the end its all good! We were just proud to contribute to this tourney and the TRAILER for the 2nd Annual Black-Tip Challenge, and the Head on Collision Crash Course for LAND-BASED SHARK FISHING!!
SO.........Sit back, relax, grab a cold one or a loved one, and check out this preview of the Black-Tip Challenge. And brace yourselves for an information overload of some of the most bad-ass sounds ,scenery, and sharks for the tourney!
