Dusky sends out a big congrats to Thom Guyton aboard his Dusky 33, “More Time”, along with his mates David Lockhart and Patrick Weekley for their recent win in the Cayman Swordfish Challenge Shoot Out 2011, the second of a two-part tournament.
“More Time” took first place in round one with a 52’ swordfish. Out of approximately thirty boats, they were the only boat to catch a fish. After winning in the first round, “More Time” created a second part to the tournament by leaving half of the prize up for grabs.
Nearly a month later, they returned to the Cayman’s to reclaim their prize. In part two, “More Time” took 1st through 3rd place with a 50’ swordfish. Mate David Lockhart was quoted having said, “We were doing 30 miles an hour in 5 foot seas. Man, was I thankful to have a Dusky that day!”
Way to go, Thom!

Dusky Owners Dolphin Fishing Tournament
This year our OWNER’S TOURNAMENT will be held on Sunday, June 5th, 2011 at I.T. Parker Community Center in Dania Beach.
We have arranged for launch facilities with Harbour Towne Marina. The marina opens at 6:30 A.M. and gas can be purchased there if needed. After fishing, boats may tie off around the Community Center. There are no fixed bridges between Port Everglades Cut and the tournament site.
For those who need hotel accommodations, there are several hotels in the immediate area. Please call us if you would like for us to assist you in making a reservation, or if you need further information.
Each angler will receive only one ticket for the cookout and awards ceremony. Children under 10 (NON-ANGLERS) will be admitted free. Additional party tickets can be purchased for $30.00 each.
Our TOURNAMENT will be limited to 350 anglers this year so please sign up as soon as possible.
Please join us for a GREAT TIME and PARTY!
NOTE: Everyone on the boat is considered an angler.
Dusky welcomes a new charter captain to the family! Check out the video from Captain Dom Petrarca aboard his Dusky 256 with Coastal Charters Sportfishing.
Coastal Charters Sportfishing is a full-time fishing outfit for serious anglers, specializing in light tackle jigging and popping methods. Captain Dom Petrarca has been chasing big offshore tuna, sharks and other pelagics for over 20 years in and around the waters of Southern New England. Operating a fast and stable Dusky 256 center console with twin outboards and a raised custom casting deck, Capt. Dom will trailer to any of the available ramps in Southern New England closest to the best fishing grounds. This maximizes your fishing time and decreases your transit times offering you the best chance to hook that fish of a lifetime. Coastal Charters Sportfishing limits offshore trips to a maximum of 4 anglers and does not carry a mate which decreases cost and allows more room for your fishing party. This also provides a much more hands on experience, getting you right into the action and the entire catch process, from hunting and hooking to landing or releasing the many large game fish that abound in Southern New England waters.
