OMG! This weekend was the Cobia Tournament. This is the BIG tournament for Old Homosassa. While there are two places to start out from, everyone has to take their boat to MacRae’s to get their fish weighed. The excitement starts Friday night with two captains meetings. Which means that everyone that is in the tournament is hanging out at the Shed.
We went to the Shed Friday evening to meet up with friends and check out the band. No parking. No tables. Glad we rode our bikes. We ended up sitting at the picnic table at the Bait Shop. Craziness. Got a picture of these guys as they came in.
It’s the tradition to get down to MacRae’s before 7 am on Saturday morning so we can watch the captains go out. We barely got there in time. We slept in a bit later than normal–could be from going to the Shed the evening before!
On Sunday I rode my bike back to MacRae’s. About 3:30. I knew that the captains have to be in by 4 to have their catch weighed. Thought that would be fun. Not so much fun. I don’t know where all of these people parked, but it couldn’t be legally! Plus they were way ahead of me on the beer consumption.
It was hot. It was crowded. I went home. Yes, I’m a party pooper. I’ll read in the paper who won!
