Bill' Sport Shop/Irish Eyes Striper Tournament
It is only one day until the start of the striper tournament. Folks are running in to sign up as the deadline is fast approaching. We have some interesting things happening this year. Along with the weekly heaviest striper (thanks to Kris Battaglini, one of our tournament anglers, for the recommendation last year) we also have heaviest bluefish and lightest legal striper.
At least 23 door prizes will be given away every Friday at Irish Eyes! Over $20,000.00 in prizes and cash will be awarded during the course of the Tournament. Don't miss this opportunity!
A special thanks to Bryan Hecksher, Auto Gallery of Delaware, through Delaware-Surf-fishing.com for sweetening the pot by awarding a 2004 Toyota Rav4 Suv to the angler catching a new State record striper weighing a minimum of 56 lbs., 12 oz. The rules are on our web site.
Many thanks also to the many Captains, local businesses and venders who generously donated gifts and charters for door prizes and wild card prizes.
Please visit our web site if you missed anything.
Capt. Bill, Bill, Jr., Ellie and I will see you Friday night at Irish Eyes.
