Last Friday night was the first social of the 2016 Tournament. Irish Eyes served a great buffet of pork stuffed with apples, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, rolls and dessert. Door prizes were awarded. Over 100 anglers and guests had a great time. It was good to see everyone again after a year off due to the brain thing. (He’s fine now!)
>> Tuesday there were false albacore and blues caught in the IRI.
>> Paul P, Bill Weiss and his buddies fished Savages Ditch and caught small blues, and a kingfish along with skates and sharks using cut bait.

>> Luis Moreno was using green crabs and sand fleas, fished the Wall and said he did fairly well on keeper tog. Once he started to move closer to the light house he said that area seemed to hold the larger tog.
