Hey there all fans in MGFC-land, … we’re just about ready to launch a product line with MGFC-branded gear and wearables. Later this summer, we’ll make it available for sale on the website mgfishing.com first things first, though … we want to know what you want, and we want to know what you think of our first products.
So, please take a moment to complete this short survey. It will help us serve you better.
Zach Lewis took delivery of MGFC’s newest 37ft Freeman Boatworks catamaran last week. So far, the boat has run three trips, and it’s turning heads all across the Southeast.
We ran an online contest asking fans and followers to chime in when they saw the vessel in transit from the Freeman facility in South Carolina to it’s MGFC home at Venice Marina. People sure do love these 37ft Freeman boats. How much? Well, if our numbers are any indication — tons (and that’s a technical term)!
Captain Billy Wells is no stranger to long days on the Gulf of Mexico, and no stranger to the deft art of daytime swordfish action. This spring, his keen sense of timing and adventure was spot on. As usual, customers come down to Venice to fish with Capt. Billy and they almost always want to catch yellowfin tuna.
However, once the ice box is filled with six or seven, sometimes 12 or more tuna, most anglers agree — that’s enough meat for our friends and family back home. Let’s turn our attention to another species.
That is when Billy suggests swordfish. Day dropping for swordfish has become more popular in recent years. Billy Wells, and captains Kevin Beach and Jordan Ellis all share a hand in adding to it’s popularity. The success these captains have had with yellowfin tuna is the stuff of legend, the success they’ve had with daytime swordfish drops is something to ponder and — for offshore charter customers — something to relish.
When going with MGFC for swordfish you witness the full set of skill, experience, and insider knowledge — gifts that come only from many days, nights, months and years on the same body of water.
So, … Capt. Jordan Ellis names his new boat after his beloved momma. And, … his momma’s favorite fish in the whole world is a blue marlin. And, … on the first trip out in the f/v Kimmi — they land a blue marlin. Coincidence? We think not. Powers above; lots of Love! Momma Kim would be proud.
Jordan and his charter braved iffy (nautical term there) weather, and headed out a bit later than normal from Venice Marina. First cast brought in a yellowfin, and the second fish to the boat was a blue marlin.
Yes, the Marlin flag flew high and mighty on the Kimmi as she made her maiden voyage, and smiles were wide all around when Jordan and his charter made it back to the dock. Final tally? Seven tuna and one marlin.
