Seventh Edition of ROFFS™ Fishy Times – Boat Show News, Shark Tracking and New Pending Bluefin Tuna Record

We just wanted to remind you that the Miami International Boat Show starts Thursday (Feb. 13 Premier Day: 10 am – 6 pm) and continues everyday (10 am – 8 pm) through Monday (Feb. 17: effectively 10 am – 5 pm) at the Miami Beach Convention Center.  The show continues to be the premier recreational boating and fishing show in the United States and around the world.  We will be at our ROFFS™ booth, #M50 on the main floor at the same booth as last year. We have redesigned the exhibit with many more photos of winning fish.

Mitch and Greg will be providing demonstrations of how we derive our fishing forecasting analyses and other products.  We want your feedback on our products. They will also show how we use all the infrared and ocean color  – chlorophyll satellite images (U.S. and European) for deriving the fishing forecasting analyses.

They will be answering questions, listening to your comments on your fishing successes and how we can improve our service, and just plain talking fishing and fisheries research.

ROFFS™ is offering great boat show specials (discounts and extra free analyses). In addition to our super special boat show pre-season discounts, we are offering one free gift certificate for anyone who comes to our booth and provides a complete address form (name, address, phone and email). One only per boat please.

The Miami Beach Convention Center is easy to reach by car. Parking is often a challenge if you arrive late. So come early (45-60 minutes before the show) and use one of the many Miami Beach public parking lots and the Miami Beach High School. For more details see Come out early and have a good day.  Hope to see you there.

Please remember that the deadline for Pre-Season Discounts is March 01, 2011. You should have received a mailing before the boat show. If not, come see us at the show or call the office. You can save at least 15% by subscribing now. Better than most recent yields on the stock market.

New Pending Pacific Bluefin Tuna All Tackle World Record

Kiwi angler Kevin Baker potentially set the new All-Tackle record for Pacific bluefin tuna (Thunnus orientalis), with a 352.5 kg (777-pound, 1-ounce) fish he caught on September 14, 2013 while fishing off the coast of Greymouth, New Zealand. This massive tuna hit during the final hours of Baker’s multiple day fishing trip aboard the Cova Rose, captained by Lance Goodhew. After marking fish on the sounder, Baker fed a fresh hoki back through the chum line and almost instantly came tight on the big fish. For more information please visit our website to read on…
