Trophy Striper Tournament Results
After 5 cancelled tournament days due to small craft advisories, we finally had a fishable day on Sunday May 19th. However, angling for the large migrating rockfish was very difficult. Many hours were logged but there were no tournament entries.
ACE Hardware of Kilmarnock has agreed to move their tournament sponsorship to the Spanish Lessons tournament in August.
The fishing was very good (just before the tournament).
New Rockfish Tournament Reporting Requirement
In order to hold a tournament in Maryland water for Rockfish the Maryland DNR requires entries to be weighed and measured to the nearest 1/4 inch. NNAC has received approval from the Maryland DNR to conduct tournaments for Rockfish during 2013. We will submit the required information to the DNR based on the entry form information completed by participants.
This applies only for Rockfish. Be sure to add the length (to nearest 1/4 inch) to your tournament entry form for Rockfish and indicate that it was caught in Maryland water (water under Maryland DNR jurisdiction including tributaries of the Potomac). The entry forms do not have a specific line item for this information. You can add it anywhere on the form.

The Northern Neck Anglers Club (NNAC) is dedicated to educating anglers about saltwater fishing techniques throughout the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula areas of the Chesapeake Bay. Regular meeting and correspondence allows members to share information regarding the latest tackle, marine hardware/software, bait selection, techniques and fishing hot spots.
Member meetings are held every other month throughout the fishing season. Guest speakers provide timely expertise. The club also runs approximately 8 tournaments each year for 8 different species. An “Angler of The Year” contest is conducted with points awarded based on tournament participation. The annual picnic is held in June. Charter outings and other events may be hosted by the club throughout the year.
