Congratulations to Michael Milano! He took full advantage of the full moon last weekend and landed himself in 1st place in the bluefish division with his 17lb 4oz bluefish!  This bluefish was only 3oz over the previous 1st place angler, Richard Reilly. 

Peter Bracken took 2nd place in the Bass by Shore division when he landed a 43lb 11oz striper on September 1st!  Ed Sousa weighed in his first bass of the tournament on September 1st, when he caught a 37lb 13oz bass that he weighed in at Quaker Lane Bait & Tackle!

Media Partner Coastal Angler will be providing fishing reports for us throughout the season. Their writer, Zach Harvey will post his latest fishing reports15-Pound, 11-Ounce Slabzilla Landed off Block By Veteran Flukeman, Pat Muli: "in recent days; Island stripermen have been sifting through a wide range of striper sizes from as small as 22 inches all the way up to the mid-40-pound class. The fishing is not exactly balls-to-the-wall at this point, but you can pick away through a tide if you know the lay of the scattered “spots within the spots” around the North End and between, say, Black Rock to SW Point and all the way out “Southwest Ledge” to the Fence at the 3-mile mark." To read more click HERE.
