Mid-Atlantic 2009

The LizAnne, Intensity Boat Works first build, was present in their first major tournament, Mid-Atlantic $500,000, since being commissioned back in March 09'. The Mid-Atlantic $500,000 is a prestigious marlin tournament fished by the best which takes place in South Jersey and is hosted by The Canyon Club. The LizAnne crew consisted of owner Capt. Bob Mormile Jr, Captain John Ball, Bob Mormile Sr, Russell DiGiallorenzo of the Buzz Kill, Greg Alfonsi, son's Mike and Andrew Mormile and mates Shane and Paul.
The preparation alone for these tournaments is something that you can only see for yourself. Captain John accompanied by mates Shane and Paul rip through boxes of baits, re-spoil reels, and test the drags as they try to prevent any unforced errors. The tournament ranges for five days and each boat chooses three of them to fish. The LizAnne choose to fish Day 1, Day 2 and Day 4 base on the weather.
Day 1 The LizAnne decided to head North and went 2/2 on White Marlin.
Day 2 Traveled North once again and saw 3, releasing 2 white marlin.
Day 4 With rumored success South, the LizAnne followed and went 1/2 on White Marlin.

All and all it was a great tournament for the LizAnne, despite not producing a 'money fish', who was able really test the fishablity of the custom Intensity Work.
