Fishing offshore out of Flamingo Joan Vernon, President of Presidential Challenge Fishing Tournaments, hosting the 4th annual Flamingo Fishing Rodeo August 9-11, spent time fishing in and offshore this week. Joan is a world-class light tackle lady angler. On this trip fishing was a little on the slow side. They got one beautiful bite from a blue marlin that likely got bill wrapped. Joan pitched baits to a couple of finicky sailfish with no hook up But she and her team caught and released 3 strong Jacks and 2 beautiful roosterfish.
