    Seemed like an appropriate thread for this. Sorry if it's not.

    This guy is planning on launching his project this summer. Sounds like a solid plan. Hopefully it works. Cool stuff.

    Edit: Will be getting out on the skiff soon, hope to have some entries.

    My fail for not knowing how to use the posting. I am a newbie to the site. New owner of a Pursuit 325OS. Pulled 6 "Congrats Graduates" mylars and a couple of feliz navidads out of the water on our way to 9 mile off of San Diego yesterday. Didn't take pictures as I did not know there was a raffle. Just thought it was the right thing to do even though we tangled our troll lines circling around to pick up a balloon after a failed gaffe. The marine life was amazing. Lots of blue whales. Lets keep them safe............as well as the turtles and all else.

    Banner day for us on Sunday. We did a slalom run out high-speed gaffing and got 14 for the day. Even stopped to pick up a full trash bag someone decided belonged in the beautiful ocean....
    Managed a couple of fish too!

    The Marlin Clubs "Trash & Tuna tournament was a success
    A pretty good amount of trash was brought in
    The Grand winner was a large bag of Onions
    I took a picture of the collected trash and our contribution-More trash was added after I put the camera away for evening
    Great tournament-Thanks Marlin Club

    My first balloonfish of the season. Caught on Nine Mile bank. It was fooled by a West Marine Boat Hook. Water temp 73 and clear.

    I pick up every balloon I find while out on the water, and I find a lot. It’s sad! I don’t want any raffle tickets, I do anyway. Every one I see gets picked up.
