Suffolk Marine Anglers 2014 Spring Bass Tournament
Sunday June 8th was tournament day for Suffolk Marine Anglers. The weather could have not of been more perfect with light wind and sunshine all day. 40 boats throttled up out of the hole at the shot gun start and the 6th annual striped bass competition was underway.
News 12’s Sean Bergin was onboard the committee boat covering the event and shooting his weekly feature “Road Trip” He also helped out as the guest weigh master.
Most boats fished the ocean working the schools of bunker. A few fish were caught in the morning but the action really heated up after lunchtime. This tournament may hold the recorded for most big fish in a one day competition.
There were eight places, the top Bass was weighed in by Mark Wrobleski just shy of 50 pounds at 49.9 pounds. The last placing Striper was 34.95 pounds.
The captain’s meeting was held at Miller’s Ale House of Deer Park. Thousands of Dollars was raised for Hospice Care Network during the auction. Miller’s ale house also donated the hot food and cold drinks the day of the tournament and without their generosity this event could have never evolved to what it is today.
Thanks to all the sponsors for their support and help, making this competition a great spring Tradition.
