Garmin helps land the big fish at SKA tourney


Summer is here and the tournament season is heating up! We were in Fernandina Beach, FL, last weekend for the 27th Annual Tournament of Champions Kingfish Tournament, an SKA sponsored event, where we heard from participants with Garmin equipment already on-board, and showed off our latest marine electronic offerings to skippers and other tourney goers alike. A typical boat at this tournament was a high-end center console in the 30-foot range with twin or triple outboards, but the winning boat for this tournament was a victory for the underdog – a 17-foot Boston Whaler (the smallest boat registered) with a single engine and a Garmin chartplotter/sonar combo unit on board. With its built-in digital sounder, the owner credited the GPSMAP 545s for getting him to the fishing spots and for helping him find the winning 48-pound fish! Have a look below at the winning fish, the owner's boat, and the Garmin booth displaying the equipment that helped land that prize-winning catch.
