This is the Bluefin Blowout

With four fish landed, lots of  money raised, fantastic music, delicious food and drinks, and a good time had by all, I’d say this year’s Bluefin Blowout was a pretty big success.

If you weren’t able to make an appearance, here is a little video to show you what you missed.

Fat Tuna Brings in a Pretty Fat Tuna

IMG_6385

The 2nd fish in at this year’s Bluefin Blowout was landed by Fat Tuna!  Congratulations.

A beautiful fish weighing in at 412 pounds was just a little too small to take the lead from Shark Bait….and was soon outweighed by the Miss Fern’s 536 pound fish that hit the dock just 15 minutes later.  Good showing though!

Bluefin Blowout: Bidding, Free Samples, Music, and Fun Under the Tent. Now.

At least two fish on their way in, but even before that happens there is a lot of fun to be had down here at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort and the Bluefin Blowout.  The bar is open for business, some vendors are in the house, and the silent auction is bursting with fantastic items!  Tonno is serving up samples….and Lyon-Waugh has some sweet vehicles on display. Scottie Mac is playing some great music and the anticipation is building.
