Kyle Anderson's state record Muskier, which he affectionately named "Queenie", is on display at Short's.

Kyle will be talking about the catch today and tomorrow, at 2pm and 5pm. It looks like he will be hanging out and drinking all day as well, probably wouldn't be too hard to pry some tips from him any time of day!

Also, $1 of your first pint when you show a valid fishing liscense!

Live From the Pursuit Booth! @MiamiBoatShow #MIBS by admin

Pursuit, a sister brand of Tiara, is having an event of their own this morning at the Miami Convention Center. We are on the ground and are pleased to let you know Pursuit has just introduced their new ST 310 Sport along with a new inshore series of boats ranging from 18'-23'. They are currently talking about the state of the business and we will have more details (and real pictures) for you soon!

Here is the official verbage:

The all new Pursuit ST Series was specifically designed to deliver more comfort and utility to Pursuit's legendary center console platform. Nothing can compare to the plush wrap-around lounge in the bow, luxurious helm/companion seats for three at the console and in the cockpit, forward and aft facing bench seating offering a comfortable location for all. Yacht caliber features throughout including new innovative head access, equipment storage and optional towing package let this series stand alone as a premium inshore/offshore vessel and tender.

Scout Introduces New Products by admin

From MIBS 2010

Scout started off the Miami Boat Show by introducing 5 of their 9 new models. The main focus was on their new 34' center counsel.

In short the highlights include:

- A well thought out transom, with "fly by wire" steering, so no need for cumbersome and space consuming steering mechanisms. Allows easy access to and from port and startboard.

- A power t-top which slides back to provide additional shade. Multiple safeguards have been put in place to prevent accidental activation while rods are in the way.

- A roomy cabin with a fair amount of headroom. We could stand up without feeling like we are going to hit our head on everything.

- LED lights (minimize energy use) built into the hull.

Overall Scout has created a great boat which will be great for fishing, which can also multi task for family outings.

Boat Show Set-up by admin

Looking at the Miami Beach Convention Center in the main hall, it is hard to believe in less than 5 days it will be transformed into a highly polished and great looking boat show. There are crates, tape, travel lifts, and fork lifts everywhere.

The outside booth exhibitor tent currently sits completely empty along with the parking lot! It will be a busy couple of days for exhibitors (and their detailers!) leading up to the show.

We did happen to see Scout's new 34' boat waiting to be taken inside while we were there. They are hosting a press event on Thursday for their official announcement.
