Running Mon Marine & Resort

Tuna & Dolphin Open


Three Days of Fishing Fun, Island Music & Magic

The new headquarters for sport fishermen on Grand Bahama Island—Running Mon Marina & Resort—will kick off the season with a fantastic fishing tournament designed to be fun for the whole family. The Running Mon Tuna & Dolphin Open will be held June 6 - 8, 2002 and will bring together fishing boats of all sizes from Florida and the surrounding islands to compete for over $25,000 in cash and prizes.

Running Mon Resort’s 70-slip, full-service marina with floating docks is located on a protected cove with its own inlet just 75 miles from Palm Beach. Everything you could need or want is on-site including Port of Entry and Customs, fuel, bait, tackle, convenience and duty-free liquor stores, bath and laundry. The resort’s comfortable, Caribbean-style rooms all face the marina and the MainSail Gourmet Restaurant features incredible meals by Austrian Chef Franz that rival the finest anywhere in the islands!

Two of the most popular fish found in the Bahamas, yellowfin tuna and dolphin, are both found in great abundance in June. What better time for anglers to test their skill in friendly competition while enjoying the calm seas and balmy weather. A complete slate of prizes will be awarded for both species and special prizes will be awarded to junior anglers (14 and under).

“The Tuna & Dolphin Open promises to be a three days of fun for everyone,” said Gary Caputi, Tournament Director. “We’ve been working hard to stage an event that offers great fishing action and entertainment for the whole family. You’ll meet renowned artist Carey Chen, see some of his latest work, get an autographed poster and thrill to Barnaby the Magician who will amaze you with magic and slight of hand. This is an event for the whole family!”

The Running Mon Open is cosponsored by Penn Reels, Furuno Electronics, Salt Water Sportsman magazine, Venture Boats, Floscan Instruments, Cannon Downriggers, Berkley fishing line, Boater’s World, Canyon Gear Outfitters, Krystal Deep-Drop Reels and Capt. Harry’s Fishing Supply. They are spicing up the cash prizes with tackle and gear worth thousands of dollars! Captain’s bags with over $150 in free goodies plus custom designed tournament tee shirts will be provided and there are special reduced dockage and room rates for contestants. A “Buddy Crossing” from Palm Beach Inlet is being organized.
