Cobia Classic Tournament

The Cobia Classic Tournament, sponsored by Surfside Bait and Tackle of Mechanicsville, was scheduled for Saturday July 15 and Sunday July 16.  Small Craft Advisories (SCA) were posted at 10:32am (thru 5:00pm) on Saturday for two of the club’s four tournament fishing zones, resulting in cancellation of Saturday as a tournament fishing day.  No SCAs were posted for Sunday, therefore the tournament was held as a one day tournament on Sunday.  Below are the final tournament results:
Cobia –

1st place – Stuart McKenzie  14oz  Lewisetta Marina
