This was the first year out with this tournament????
You’re kidding right?
All hats off to Drew Hale, Tobin Domenick, the sponsors and all the support staff who pulled off the most professionally run kick ass Tuna tournament I’ve ever seen in this town. Packed and WATCH OUT NEXT YEAR. I feel bad for any high line sponsors who passed on this because it was THE Tuna Tournament of the Northeast and next year people are going to be FIGHTING To GET IN.
We will have a ton more coverage and follow up with pictures from Brianmoc and Pete Seminara and Pictures and Video I shot last night.

Thirty years ago Gloucester, Massachusetts was home to one of the best Bluefin Tuna tournaments in New England. So when my good friends Rob Bouley and Joe Boreland brought up the idea for a big tournament, I knew it was time to bring all tuna fanatics back to America’s Oldest Seaport for the Lyon-Waugh Auto Group First Annual 2012 BLUEFIN BLOWOUT!
Our home base at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort is the premier location to access the tuna fishing grounds north to Ipswich Bay, east to Jeffrey’s Ledge and south to Stellwagen Bank. Our mission is to gather commercial and recreational, experienced and greenhorn, young enthusiasts and old salts together for a weekend full of huge prizes, great bands, big parties and amazing fishing!
Nothing compliments two days of competitive fishing like three days of music, food, cocktails and fish stories. The feel of a big tournament will be in the air with the suspense of the day’s cash Calcutta. Get a chance to talk to some of the captains and mates on the new National Geographic series “Wicked Tuna” and watch as some of the biggest tuna fish of the year are weighed in right on location.
Whether you are the big cash prize winner or enjoying everything the tournament has to offer, we are excited to have you aboard with us at the most exciting tuna tournament of the year! See you at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort for the Lyon-Waugh Auto Group First Annual 2012 BLUEFIN BLOWOUT
