The advisory warned of a storm moving at 40 mph with winds gusting up to 72 mph. I knew that fishing too far from the weigh-in location would not be the best plan, so I found a cove on Kent Island about a mile and a half away and targeted there for my tournament. I ventured out to the bridge but found the waters to be too difficult to fish properly, so I sought the safety of the coves. I only spotted 2-3 other boaters out there as well, so I think I made the right decision.
The raffle was a great time as well with most everyone going home with something, but we all were anxious for the top raffle prize - a 2012 Hobie Revolution 11. In the end, although I missed out on the new Hobie, I ended up with a nice Redington bag that retails for about $50, so it was worth it. This was a well run tournament from the folks over on MKF (snaggedline.com) and they deserve mad props for running it. A big thanks go out to the sponsors that contributed prizes for the raffles and placings in each division.
I pieced together my tournament experience late last night in the following video.....
I hope you enjoy!
Tight lines, be safe and always always always keep a weather eye on the horizon!
