******* Northern Neck Anglers Club *******

The Northern Neck Anglers Club  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 during the fishing season. Guest speakers provide timely expertise. During 2019, the club is hosting eight member tournaments (nine different species).

An “Angler of The Year” contest is conducted each year with points awarded based on tournament results. Other events such as a club picnic, charter outings and seminars may be hosted by the club throughout the year. 

Gift Certificates are awarded to the top 3 placings. Angler of the Year (AOY) points are awarded to the adult members as follows: 5 points for first, 4 points for second, 3 points for third and 2 for fourth. Youth members are not eligible for the AOY award.

The club’s fourth member tournament of 2019, the Spanish Lessons Tournament will be held over the first three weekends in August (August 3-4, 10-11 and 17-18), weather permitting as always.  The tournament is sponsored by R W’s Sport Shop, Callao.

Originally scheduled target species for this tournament were Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel. Acting upon suggestions from club members during the July 27 member meeting, the Board of Directors has unanimously added Cobia and Spot as target species for this tournament.

Therefore, target species for the Spanish Lessons tournament will be Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia and Spot.

AOY points will be awarded for each of the three species per tournament rules, with 5 points for first, 4 for second, 3 for third, 2 for fourth and 1 for fifth and all other eligible fish entered.
