Liquid Fire Fishing Team Provided an Update on their July/August Fishing Tournaments
Contributed by Mark Henderson – Captain – Liquid Fire Fishing Team
What a tremendous experience we just had in Ocean City, MD, at the White Marlin Open! This was one of the largest events in which we’ve ever had the pleasure to participate. Our Liquid Fire Fishing Team spent the week of July 31 – August 9 at the largest bill-fishing tournament in the world.
This was a great venue in which to display our boat and Rigid Industries LED Lighting products. Our location / boat slip for the week was at the mouth of the Harbor Island Marina, where the event was held. Literally, thousands of spectators visited the area on a daily basis. We had the pleasure of being able to pull into the scales on the first day of fishing, weighing two mahi-mahi and missing the daily first place prize by merely two pounds. This was an awesome experience, as the crowd greeted and cheered our team as Joshua gracefully slid our Intrepid 375TE CC Open up to the scales. This event is accustomed to large sport fishing vessels taking the stage. It was an honor to be able to represent Rigid Industries LED lighting as we had our photo taken.
The timing for this was impeccable, as we were filming a new TV show with Brendan Vining of Pleasure Boater. There will be some awesome footage coming soon to our website and the TV show, as our second day of fishing treated us to a 350# Blue Marlin release. WOW, what a great day! We can’t wait to see the TV show. Be sure to check out the marlin below.
Jay Feimster, of PointClickFish.com, also featured an entire radio show around our week at the White Marlin Open. Following is the link to the 33-minute show. Paul Fleming of Intrepid Powerboats provides a great interview for the first 12 minutes, and Crockett and I complete the final 21 minutes talking about the event and Rigid Industries LED Lighting.
While I had work commitments during this year’s I-CAST in Orlando, FL, Audrey and Crockett journeyed to the event to represent our team and see many of our sponsors. The following link is from the event in front of our display at Yo-Zuri!
We have been invited again for our third time at the Bass Pro Shops Saltwater Expo in Concord, NC, as presenters and product displays for this popular event. The event runs through the month of August.
We have also been printed in the July edition of the Angler Magazine.
Since my last update, we’ve fished the following events:
- Bluewater Movements Saltwater Slam
- Swansboro Bluewater Fishing Tournament
- Cape Shootout Series – Leg 1
- East Coast Got-Em-On KMT
- Raleigh Saltwater King Mackerel Tournament
Ten tournaments remain to be fished in our 2014 season. We’ve also confirmed we will be featured in at least four daylong fishing schools in the first quarter of 2015.

Until next time,
