Congratulations to Junior Angler Marlin Stavola! Shown here with his 14lb 3oz bluefish that landed him on 2nd place in the Junior Bluefish division!

New 2nd Place Junior Bluefish!

It's Week 15 in the Pabst Blue Ribbon Fishing Tournament! Where has the time gone?!? There's just 6 weeks left in the 2015 Tournament, but with a big full moon coming up this weekend, if you've been on the sidelines now is the time to jump in on all the action. 

First and foremost we want to offer our congratulations to Marlin Stavola! He's been a strong angler in our junior division for a few years now and his
14lb 3oz bluefish put him in 2nd place on the junior bluefish leaderboard! 

In the adult bluefish division, Spencer Scaife was back at it again, pulling in his second blue in less than a week with a 13lb 7oz bluefish that he weighed in at Red Top Sporting Goods. 

It was also a very, very busy week in the Evan Metropoulous Catch and Release division. We received 25 submissions, all of which will be put into the season ending raffle for $3,000! One of last year's top prize winner's, Michael Larson, sent in photos of his 19" fluke that he caught on the 22nd. Gary Stephens, was busy catching and releasing flukes all ranging from 21" to 26". But we gotta hand it to Jeff Dunbar and Al Tremblay who on August 23rd managed to catch and release a combined 20 fish!!! What a day you guys had! 

Back over in the fluke division, Gary Stephens weighed in an 8lb 10oz fluke on August 23rd, at Westlake Fishing Lodge and congrats to Edward Rooney who entered his first fluke of the tournament on August 28th, coming in at 9lb 14oz.

And we're sure you are all very aware tomorrow is the next full moon, but did you know tomorrow's full moon happens to be the first of 3 super moons. A super moon is a considered to be a full moon that is closest to the earth in distance. So if the moon looks a little larger tomorrow night, now you'll know why. That said, with tides higher than average and fish tending to feed more, we wouldn't be surprised to see a lot more catch and release submissions and weigh ins next week. 

Lastly, just a friendly reminder, the third placed striped bass by boat is 55 pounds 6 ounces. As per tournament rules, we will not accept any entries to the Bass by Boat division that are less than 8 pounds smaller than the current 3rd place fish. That means we can't accept any stripers weighing less than 49 pounds 6 ounces.  Please consider entering any smaller fish into the Catch and Release Raffle.

Good Luck and Tight Lines!

Save the Date!
The official prize-giving ceremony and party will take place on October 24th at Ocean Mist in Matunuck, RI!  

We'll have plenty of Pabst Blue Ribbon, great food provided by the Ocean Mist and lots more from all of our sponsors and partners! 

Plus we'll be awarding all of the prizes and remember the first place winners in each division will take home a one of a kind trophy from Anchor Bend Glassworks. There's still time to weigh in that first place fish!
