Country recording artist Craig Morgan joins Bimini Wahoo Tournament

by John Bell on 6 Feb 2013
. .
Country music artist Craig Morgan will be chasing Wahoo later this month with other competitors at the Wahoo Smackdown II hosted by the legendary Bimini Big Game Club and Resort.

Morgan will be filming a segment for his award winning TV Show, 'Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors' during the February 21-23 tournament aboard Miss Kathleen, captained by Chase Camacho, rated one of the top sport fishing charters in the Caribbean.

'This is huge news for our resort and for the island of Bimini,' said Michael Weber, general manger for the 51-room Bimini Big Game Club Resort and Marina. 'This tournament is going to be special with Playboy’s Miss February hosting, a Hemingway fishing and now Craig Morgan taping a segment for his outdoor show.'

One of country music’s best-loved artists, Craig Morgan has made a name for himself with massive radio airplay of his signature hits: 'Bonfire', 'Almost Home', 'Redneck Yacht Club', 'That’s What I Love About Sunday', 'International Harvester' and 'This Ole Boy', the title track to his new album on Black River Entertainment. Morgan received one of country music’s highest honors when he was inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2008.

An avid sportsman, Morgan, in addition to his own TV show, also hosted 'Field & Stream’s Total Outdoorsman Challenge' on the Outdoor Channel.

The entry fee for the Wahoo Smackdown II (which includes four anglers per boat) is an affordable $1,250. First place prize is $5,000, followed by $1,500 for second and $1,000 for third.
