Event description


For over 30 years, MBG boat owners and their families have been coming together to share good food, fishing, and friendship.

Maverick, Hewes, Pathfinder, and Cobia owners are invited to join us for our inaugural 2018 Tampa Owners’ Tournament. Bring your family or a friend along to fish for flats, backcountry and offshore species. This year’s tournament will be hosted at the beautiful Hula Bay Club in Tampa, Florida. This tournament (aka “funament”) is an excellent opportunity for you and your family to join other Maverick, Hewes, Pathfinder, and Cobia owners for a few days of fun-filled fishing n the Tampa Bay. The area offers an array of activities to suit every family member. Sign up now to reserve your place.

Dates: October 19th – October 20th, 2018


1. All scoring will be done on the Angler’s honor. Each angler will turn in a signed score card to a tournament official no later than 5:30 pm.

2.Minimum Size. In order to be recorded as catches, certain species of fish must have a minimum length as outlined on the score card. Only five fish per species may be scored per angler.

3.Point System. Points will be awarded at the point value given to each species as noted on the scorecard and will be multiplied depending on the method of catch: bait X 1, artificial X 1.5, and fly X 2. Anglers may try to increase their point totals by catching multiple fish of the same species using different tackle, but only five fish per species will count towards the total. A species bonus of 50 points will be added to the day’s total for each different qualifying species scored above two species. For instance, 3 species = 150 bonus points, 4 species = 200 bonus points, and so on.

4. Tackle. In the artificial and fly fishing categories, baits should be “pure lures.”

5. Eligible Specis: Trout, Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Cobia, Grouper, Snapper, Flounder, Mackerel, Sheepshead


Where is the captain’s meeting and awards ceremony banquet?

Hula Bay Cluba

5210 W Tyson Ave, Tampa. FL 33611

May I bring guests to the captain’s meeting and award banquets who don’t plan on fishing?

Yes, see the registration form for Non-fishing Guest ticket which will include the Captain’s Meeting dinner on Friday night and the Awards Banquet on Saturday. Only those paying the full registration fee will receive tournament shirts and be eligible for the raffle.

Who is eligible to fish this tournament?

Owners of Maverick, Hewes, Pathfinder and Cobia boats and their guests.

If I’m from out of town, how will I know where to fish and at what time according to the tides?

Local MBG Pro Staff members will be on hand at the captain’s meeting to discuss the where’s and how’s of fishing the area.

I don’t typically fish tournaments. Why should I fish this one?

We like to refer to these as Funamants. They are more about fun, family, good food and getting together with fellow MBG owners than competitive fishing. Every angler receives at least one raffle ticket and is eligible to win anything from Costa sunglasses to fishing tackle.
