Enjoying the podium, anyway they can...

The Lizanne had another impressive tournament outing at the White Marlin Invitational hosted by Stone Harbor Yacht Club, NJ. The Lizanne was randomly teamed with 2 other boats, The Covert Mission and the Intuition, for the team portion of the 2 day tournament which seemed to be the right recipe. Each boat was able to hold their own by releasing 3 white marlin a piece for a tournament total of 9 white marlins. The team effort elevated them to an overall first place team trophy. Meanwhile, the Lizanne missed 3rd place overall individually by 25 minutes in a close finish.

Day 1
Saw one white marlin and released 2 whites. Angler's Greg Alfonsi and Bob Mormile.

Day 2
Slow day throughout with a couple moves while still being able to release one white marlin. Angler Bob Mormile.

Day 1

The fishing was slow during the first morning for the Lizanne. We had our first white marlin up in the spread at 10:00 but the fish was not interested. Afternoon came around with no luck so we made a 10 mile move at 1:00 that proved to save the day. The first white came into the spread at 1:30 which raised the excitement level to quickly hook and release him. About an hour later a second white surfaced and we were able to hook & release him with a great team effort. Once day one was complete the crew and I were able to look back in excitement for the first white marlin caught on the Lizanne. It was a great moment for everyone.

Day 2

The second day was slow for us as well and weren't seeing anything all morning. We took a gamble and chased some water up north with no success. Made a late day move south and inshore that proved to salvage the day with raising & hooking a white and releasing shortly after.

My special thanks to the team of the Lizanne as they all did a great job. This was a especially impressive due to the fact that we are still working out the fishing kinks on the new boat and testing the new dredge set ups. Great job Capt. John for taking the risk on the late day moves to restore the day and put us into the fish. The one thing I can say so far is that the Lizanne is definitely 'luring the fish'

LizAnne - First Tournament, First Place

Intensity Boat Works was well represented in the Cape May Marlin and Tuna Club Tournament- Shockley Off-Shore- as the LizAnne takes 1st Place in the Heaviest Tuna Category with a 140lb Blue Fin. LizAnne crew member Mike Mormile was the lucky angler in the chair for the trophy fish and once leadered received a team effort from the crew. The Shockley Off-Shore was the first tournament entered for the just splashed LizAnne and while its still to early make any major predictions for the coming tournament season, lady luck seems to start on their side.
