Matt Ayer submits-
The Rhumbline Striper tournament was a hit as usual. There were 76 individuals that entered and attached are a few photos of the first and second place finishers and their fish. I have also attached photos of the third place and junior winner for the tournament receiving their prizes.
1st place was Domenic Sanfilippo with a 46.01 pound striper.
2nd place was Al Williams with a 31.90 pound striper
3rd place was Tony Verga with a 30.86 pound striper
Junior winner was Brianna Ward with a 24.20 pound striper
This is an absolute no-brainer must do event. The prizes, cookout and t-shirt are worth more than the entry fee.
Get in on it for Wicked Pissah Fun!
