Two New Bass by Boat Entries!

September 12th and 13th were the magic days for the Bass by Boat Division with two new entries! On the 12th, Gene Saulnier caught a 48lb 5oz striper and weighed it in at Stonington Marina. Gene said he "arrived at Napatree Point at 11pm and drifted out until 1am when the fish took the bait. There was about a 3-4 minute fight, then I netted it into the boat. Big fish usually get close and roll trying to pull the hook or break the line. I had a 12 inch steel leader which might have helped".

On the 13th, Kyle Dawson weighed in his first bass of the tournament when he landed a 47lb 15oz striper that he weighed in a Snug Harbor Marina.

In the Bluefish division, Richard Jackson caught a 13lb 8oz bluefish on September 15th that he weighed in at Riverside Marine Bait & Tackle!

The Evan Metropolous Catch and Release Division received 6 new entries this week from some faces that are becoming quite familiar! Daniel and William West sent in 4 more entries, all between 28" and 39", and Al Tremblay sent in two entries: a 33" and a 40" bass he caught on September 12th!

With only two weeks left in the tournament, there are still a lot of prizes up for grabs. Get out there and get fishing!


  • Fish must be weighed in within 15 hours of the time of catch.
  • Catch & Release entries must be accompanied by a photo with a ruler denoting the length of the fish and also a completed Catch & Release Entry Form
  • Don't forget about minimum length requirements in all divisions:
    • Striped Bass (40 inches - adults, 35 inches - juniors)
