When I was down in Ft. Pierce for the CCA tournament last week I stopped by the shop to see Mel and one of the ideas that was thrown around was an owners tournament or get-together. Other skiff companies have events where the owners of their skiff get together for a tournament or just to fish together. I think Ankona (80+ skiffs out there and growing everyday) is there with other skiff companies and I think we can try and put something together. It may not be something that can come to fruition until this winter or early next year (low tides). I think this would be a great way to get together, see other anglers' rigging ideas and just have a good time.

The first order of business would be to get a roll call of who is interested, where are you located, and from that information we can find a central location, or a few locations to vote on, to hold the event ( I am going to assume the majority of owners live in Florida....so the first event would happen in Florida). If this becomes a yearly thing...we can move the location each year or keep it central to where owners can make a day or weekend trip out of it. Let me know what you think!

Count me in too. There is a growing contingent along the western Gulf coast, since I'm out in Houston I would have no problem organizing one out here also.

something like cedar key would be neat. Cool little fishing town and not a bad location for the guys in florida or the guys coming out of state. Just a idea

Gramps, we tried to organize a microskiff get together here (Port O'Connor) about a year ago, everyone backed out at the last minute. I don't recall but in their defense, weather may have been a factor. But, I am up for another, keep those of us around Texas informed.

Depending on the date, I would be up for a trip to Fla. ;D

I know Of another copperhead owner down this way, and two others waiting on copperheads.

Last years Microskiff from flaminGo to islamorada, the majority of the skiffs at la jolla were all Ankonas.

I also saw a badass seafoam green SUV17 at the Flamingo Marina on the 4th. I was going to go check it out, but the mosquitoes were in full effect.
So I dashed over to my buddies HPXT and we were on our way.

I vote south. :D

La Jolla was a pretty cool place last time.
If we're going to do it, might as well do it big, right?
