Fishing Tournament

derby 1The WFderby 6A’s 5th Annual Bluefish & Striped Bass Fishing Tournament was held from July 8th to 16th this year.  We wrapped up  with an awards ceremony and BBQ at Horseneck Point Lifesaving Station. It featured delicious smoked bass and great raffle giveaways for contestants and friends. Mike Veracka was first on the leaderboard and ended up taking the $250 grand prize in the striped bass competition, with a whopping 48.15 lb. keeper. In the bluefish competition, Bob Behrmann overtook the early leader and landed a 13.6 pounder to earn the $100 top award. Birch Moss won the youth division with a 10.5 lb. bluefish. And a good time was had by all!

We give a special shout out to Westport Bait & Tackle, which served as the official weigh-in station for the tournament and Smoke & Pickles for smoking a delicious fish for the tournament BBQ. Thanks too to the rest of our generous sponsors:
