March fish reports


Our annual tournament ended March 31. I need to get final fish reports for March by next Friday 4/11. We will present the annual awards at the May club meeting.



2/15 Hat Tournament

We have had a few late entries for the tournament. Below is the latest team list and rules for tomorrow.

Split Decision will be the committee boat and will monitor channel 72. Weather forecast is for west winds from 15 to 26 mph with 2 ft seas. Not what I was hoping for but maybe there will be a fish or two around anyway. After tournament party starting at 5pm at Sherman Nicks’ house (2558 SE 11 St, Pompano Beach, 33062).

Let me know if there are any questions. Best of luck tomorrow.

1/18 HAT Mixed Bag Tournament Results


We had 6 boats and 22 anglers participate in the tournament. We finally got cooperation from the weather but unfortunately, not the fish. There were only a few fish caught and only one qualifying fish. That was a sailfish on tournament winner Split Decision. Rick Moore was on the rod and assisted by Matt Cappiello, Mike Price and Mark Repetski. Congrats! Most of the teams met at the LHPYC after the tournament for lunch and fish stories. Thanks to all that participated.

Our next tournament is scheduled for 2/15. Rules and sign up info will be out shortly.
