Target Ship Shootout

The club’s second member tournament of the 2018 season, the Target Ship Shootout sponsored by Surfside Bait and Tackle of Mechanicsville, was held over the weekend of June 16-17. Target species were Cobia, Croaker and Flounder. The weather cooperated and we had a full two day tournament as scheduled. The fish apparently weren’t as cooperative as only three fish, two Cobia and one Croaker, were weighed in during the tournament. No Flounder were entered. Tournament results are set forth below:

1st           Tom Hedgpeth                  21lb 8oz
2nd          Scott Gregg                        20lb 7oz
1st           Stuart McKenzie               13oz

Gift certificates from Surfside Bait and Tackle will be awarded to the first place winners of the Cobia and Croaker species and to the second place Cobia entry. Angler of the Year points will be awarded as follows  – 5 points for first place, 4 points for second place.
