Well guys/gals! It has been an extremely busy 6 weeks for us at RedRum! We recently wrapped up our tournament season and continue to cater the peak-season anglers with most of our boats fishing daily!
My reports have been way behind (less time in the shop behind a computer) and I apologize if you have sent in photos, write ups but I’ll try to do my best to keep up from here on out!
October came and went extremely quick! Our first tournament in October was the Los Cabos Bill Fish Tournament . held October 12-14th (fishing days). Loyal RedRum angler, Joe Assenza hopped on “Oh So Rojo” with RedRum owner Ryan Donovan for the tournament. Team RedRum ended up winning the 2nd Day Wahoo Jackpot and was able to take home a little cash! Check out the rest of the tournament report here.
For the anglers that weren’t fishing the tournament they found themselves catching nice Dorado up the Pacific side. There was also still a pretty consistent Blue Marlin bite (200-300# range).
We hosted quite a few anglers for the Bisbee’s Offshore Tournament which was held October 15-16th (fishing days). RedRum had a lineup of 8 Teams:

A full moon slowed the fishing down for the next couple of days as we had 2 days of non-tournament fishing. On Monday the 17th Captain Ramon landed an estimated 50# Dorado while fishing with the Parrish Family! Several other smaller Dorado were caught amongst the fleet and Captain Omar recorded a Blue Marlin release with the Sowels.
October 19th marked the first day of one of the “Worlds riches tournaments”. The Bisbees Black & Blue is a high-stakes tournament with boats participating from all over the world. Our lineup this year consisted of 6 squads:
#5 – ShakaDoobie – La Nueva RedRum
#8 – Hurricane – Never Give Up
#33 – Bru plus Two – Oh So Rojo
#34 – Reel Texas Hookers – 19’s Toy

2016 results can be found here! We’ll get them next year Team!
For all of those that participated in tournaments with us this month. Thank you for trusting us, our crews, our boats and our craziness! Tournament fishing is one of the most unpredictable out there but we are honored that you chose us to help! We will continue to push ourselves to get better and when the time is right, raise the fat check!!
