On behalf of the Hi-Mar Striper Club, I’d like to thank all of our participants and congratulate all of our winners in the Hi-Mar Striper Club Spring Tournament held this past weekend.
We were fortunate to have good weather and reasonably calm sea conditions that allowed our 38 boats to participate in solid striper fishing. A strong and steady Bluefish bite forced Captains to work hard to find the Bass. The spring tournament results were tight with almost half the boats weighing fish.
A special note of thanks to all of our sponsors, especially Costa del Mar and our location sponsor, Bahrs Landing in the Highlands. As always, Bahrs was very accommodating and the Hi-Mar Striper Club appreciates their gracious hospitality.
Here are the results:
1st Place: Sea Horse II with a combined winning weight of 55.4lbs – Captained by Bill Mangan
