2018 SALTWATER COWBOY
The 2018 3rd annual Saltwater Cowboy is officially
in the books ! Thank you all anglers, Captains and
Sponsors for making this the best SWC yet.
A wahoo cowboy shout out to Karma OC and all of our sponsors, donors and
the folks behind the scenes that makes this event the number one tournament in
Southern California. This years fish totals and sizes have crushed the prior years
by four fold! With the top fish, a bluefin tuna, weighing in at 208.5 lbs.
That is Wicked Tuna sized. Great job captains and anglers.
The 2018 SWC event was once again, amazing with the awards banquet held at
the Dana Point Yacht Club and silent auction, live "Texas Style" . Raffles, live band,
great food and drinks plus the crew and guests of the 18 boats competed and
fished from Catalina Island to San Clemente Island and both inner and outer waters.
With over 220 people attending the auction, we were able to raise over $10,000
as a donation for Community Outreach Alliance . Our charity of choice for 2018.
Thank you to all who made this possible.
COA's goal and mission is to offer fun and healthy activities to our community that
has been deeply affected by the drug and addiction epidemic. COA seek's to create

We are all honored to help this great organization assist our future adults with a
positive path forward.

A Little History, in Memory of...
Back in the day, Dan Gorman Sr. held
an annual event that included a sport fishing and tennis tournament for a weekend of fun and friendly competition. It was called the Wahoo Jones Invitational held at the East Cape, in Baja Mexico. As a tribute to the many good times and life's memories provided by this annual hoopla, Dan Jr., family and friends have decided to resurrect the past and begin the process of setting up a classic weekend of good clean fun. We hope you join us in making this a great memory for all.
