Welcome to Grand Lagoon National – Video and Almost Live Coverage

by August 21, 2008 • 0 comments

That’s right, you read correctly. Almost live coverage of the Grand Lagoon National Fishing Tournament. By Almost Live, I mean that I’ll be posting tournament results and updates as often as I can, but not exactly as they occur.

Crews were getting set up today for the events to start tommorrow, a day later than originally planned due to Tropical Storm Fickle Fay. Of course, now, Fay is expected to make her way back over our area Friday and Saturday.

I talked to one angler today that said he expected 12 to 15 foot seas on Friday would call off all fishing, but on NOAA.gov, 5 to 7 foot seas are all that are forecast.

This is the first annual Grand Lagoon National and features 7 divisions including a big game, offshore, inshore, flats, dive, charter, kayak, and a recently added party boat division (I know, that makes 8).
