Angler Of The Month

Member Fishing Tournament and Fish Fry October 31st and November 1st

Our most recent tournament was a great one.  We had 23 Anglers and around 8 boats entered.  Anglers caught a lot of short trout and short red fish, but Mike Teegarden, Lou Villei, Mike Paone, Andrew Tomlinson, Gene Hammond and Erik Sandvik were the ones who caught keepers.  Lou Villei won the Trout division with a 22.25 inch trout weighing 3.55 lbs.  Andrew Tomlinson won the Red Fish division with 27 inch 6.85 pounder.  They also turned in other red fish and trout that were huge.  Susan Delosh and Paul Beucler caught a cooler full of Mackerel.  Kevin and Erik cleaned the fish and we had around 12-15 lbs of fillets.  Thanks to Linda from Coopers Shrimp Shack for giving our member a nice discount on their baits.    The fish fry was a great event hosted by Erik and Lois Sandvik.  The grouper division was not won and we have a carry over of $195.41 for our next tournament.  A special thanks to our set up crew and clean up crew, Charlie and Jamie Smith, Erik Sandvik, Lois Sandvik, and Mike Wilkes.  Guest at the fish fry had plenty of fish to take home with them, that was a great thing when you have more fish than the members and guest could eat.  Members reported that the off shore weather was horrible, with 5-6 foot seas.  We even had 2-3 footers at Anclote.  When will this wind lay down?
