    More on the Snook and Gamefish Foundation: The Snook & Gamefish Foundation was founded in 1989 by William Mote of MOTE Marine, and has stuck to his three guiding principles of education, conservation, and research. Mote believed that a brighter fishing future lies in the hands of informed anglers. To that end, SGF's primary service project, the Angler Action Program, has developed the only recreational angler database in the country that is being used for official stock ***sments at the state level. FWC has used SGF's data in three consecutive snook stock ***sments, a red drum ***sment, and recently committed to making the AAP their primary data source for barracuda and goliath grouper, with many more species on the horizon. Through the continued pursuit of protecting our fisheries, habitats, and angler rights through the AAP, SGF is dedicated to carrying out Mote's vision for generations to come.

    It appears there has been some confusion regarding room availability at the Tarpon Lodge. They have reserved the whole property for us, so there are still 9 rooms available, 4 in the historic inn and 5 in the Island House. Get yours now!
  8. Will there be any OT's/Get togethers in 2015 in SC?

    The registration form for the 2015 SE OT has been posted, http://www.mbcboats.com/owners-tourn-reg.html. Come join us and bring your family for a fun-filled, relaxing event that is as much about the camaraderie as the fishing. Hope to see you in beautiful Charleston 5/15-5/16.
  13. Will there be any OT's/Get togethers in 2015 in SC?

    We never want to conflict with a CCA event. We could start the party earlier with the captain's meeting at Barrier Island Marine and then those who want to go to the CCA banquet can head over from there.
  14. SWF Owners Tournament ?

    I've secured the Tarpon Lodge on Bokeelia for the nights of June 26 and 27th. http://www.tarponlodge.com/home/ It's a little later than the original plan, but the fishing is still good and the out of season rates are better. The place is all ours for those nights, but they only have 22 rooms, so book early. There's a great marina next door and plenty of room for trailers for those who live close by and don't need to stay the night. Stay tuned for more details and a registration form. This is going to be a great time!
  15. Will there be any OT's/Get togethers in 2015 in SC?
