Grab Bag Tournament 9/9-10

The Grab Bag Tournament, sponsored by J&W Seafood of Deltaville, was held over the weekend of September 9-10.
Although a number of members reported seas too rough to fish on Saturday September 9, no Small Craft Advisories (SCAs) were posted between sunrise and noon for any of our four tournament fishing zones, therefore Saturday was a tournament fishing day and all fish weighed in were eligible for tournament awards and Angler of the Year (AOY) points.
SCAs were in effect through the morning of Sunday Sept 10 for each of our four tournament fishing zones.  Therefore, Sunday was cancelled as a tournament fishing day and tournament results were based on fish weighed in on Saturday.
Below are final tournament results –
Spanish Mackerel – no entries
Bluefish – no entries
Spot –
1st place – Stuart McKenzie 12oz
2nd place – Lee Pulling 8oz
3rd place – Tom Smith 7oz

Octoberfest Tournament 10/14-15

The next scheduled member tournament is the Octoberfest Tournament October 14-15, weather permitting.  The Octoberfest Tournament is sponsored by the NNAC.  Target species for the tournament will be Rockfish, Speckled Trout and Puppy Drum.  Gift cards will be awarded for the top two fish (by weight) for each species, with the first place winner of each species also receiving a plaque. Angler of the Year points will be awarded for each species, with 4 points for first place, 3 for second, 2 for third and 1 point for all other entries.
