Lanesville Bluefish Tournament

Today was the annual Lanesville Bluefish Tournament. The number of entrants have been increasing each year and this year it was 540. It was an exceptionally beautiful day--no clouds until late afternoon, light to no breeze, flat calm seas, and moderate temperatures.

The winner of the tournament brought in a fish that was 10 lbs, 6 oz. Not really a big Bluefish--15 pounders were common in the last few years. One entranted commented that though the fish weren't large they had stopped counting because they caught so many.

Weigh-in ran from 3:00 to 4:00pm, after which prizes were awarded. This year's First Place prize winner was awarded $2,000! The post-turnament partying went on until after 7:00pm (not so late for Lanesville).

Tell me what you think--leave me a comment.


  • Wow! How did they fit all of those boats in there--it's wall-to-wall.
