Fish News: Tournament Results, Dues, Banquet Info
Tournament Results, Dues, Banquet Info
Flounder regulations for 2007 are going to be much tougher than what we have had the past few years. We are looking at something like an 18.5-inch minimum, 5 fish bag limit, and closed seasons of January through March and July 23 through July 29. This is just one of the options being looked at but it gives you an idea what to expect for this year. As of right now, we are still fishing at a 6 fish bag limit with a 16.5-inch minimum.
The results of the Bishop Bait and Tackle Striped Bass Tournament:
1st Place: Charles Southall: 54 pounds 6 ounces
2nd Place: Ken Neill, III: 43 pounds
3rd Place: Chad Bridges: 42 pounds 8 ounces
It is that time of year to pay your club dues for the next year. Membership will remain at $30 for 2007. Get your dues into Nelson Ortiz. Capt. Jim Brincefield is a new member for 2007. He is fishing out of Virginia year-round now. He has donated a free deep-drop trip that some lucky club member will win at our awards banquet.
Our awards banquet will be on February 23. The banquet will be a little different this year, no buffet line. It will be a sit down dinner with a choice of four meals you will select from ahead of time.
Check out the Chum Line for a registration form. Register as early as possible so we can give a count to the restaurant.
