New First Place Fluke! 

Tauras Vebeliunas with the new first place catch in the fluke division: 11lb 1oz

Welcome to the Week 13 Pabst Blue Ribbon Fishing Tournament Newsletter! 

As the beautiful summer weather continues throughout the region, the Tournament Office didn't receive as many weigh-ins this week, but we do have, for the second week in a row a game changer on the Fluke Leaderboard!

Congratulations Tauras Vebeliunas claimed first place in the fluke division on August 9th when he landed a 11lb 1oz fluke!  In addition, top female angler, Gisele Golembeski, caught a 8lb 10oz fluke on August 10th weighed in at Snug Harbor Marina.  Also this week... John Frione landed a 52lb 13oz striper on August 13th and weighed in at Bobby J's Bait & Tackle and Sam Dibner landed another doormat on August 10th, coming in at 9lb 5oz.

In this edition of the newsletter, take a look at some of the latest catches, save the date for the awards party, plus learn all about Swivits and Flippin out Fluke, and congratulate the July monthly winners!
