Greetings MBMC Members,
Apologies for the delay but I wanted to take a moment to provide a wrap up of our recent Rock Cod Tournament and acknowledge our winner(s).
Sadly enough we only ended up with two boats entered with a third having to drop out just prior to the tournament with mechanical issues. We would like to extend our appreciation to the Encounter and the High Count for giving us some club members to cheer on.
Congratulations goes out to Ken Yasuda’s Encounter for taking high boat honors with the only fish weighed to my knowledge. This earns the Encounter 4 points towards the annual tournament high boat award.
– Top angler, earning 4 points, is awarded to Kent Yamada for his 7 lb Bocaccio rock fish. Congrats on taking home the prize money and $50 bonus gift card for winning the men’s division.
– 2nd high angler, earning 3 points, is awarded to Jim Kelley for his 6.2 lb Bocaccio rock fish.
– 3rd high angler, earning 2 points, is awarded to Kevin Yamamoto for his 5 lb Bocaccio rock fish.
….a job well done to all our anglers that weighed fish as well as to those that participated in the tournament!
Apparently there were no Ling Cod caught for the jackpot division so that money has been returned to the entrants. With no winners in the women’s, junior’s and Ling Cod jackpot divisions, the three additional $50 bonus gift cards supplied by the club to boost the winners purse will be rolled over to future tournaments.
The board will be meeting next week to discuss and plan upcoming events which will be conveyed in a soon to follow president’s letter. I sincerely hope with the improving weather and fishing conditions we can build participation in the club activities so we can all share in the fun.
Wishing you all good health and tight lines,
