Bill’s Sport/Irish Eyes Striper Tournament
We have teamed up with Short's Marine to award the angler in Bill's Sport Shop/Irish Eyes Striper Tournament, a 2013, 19’ Carolina Skiff with an Etec engine and trailer. The angler who catches a striped bass 5 lbs. greater than the state record at that time will be awarded the boat.
The top female angler in the tournament will receive a gold chain with a gold striper pendent with a sapphire eye from Holland Jewelers, valued at $1500.00, and a ½ day charter from Captain Brian Wazlavek, aboard the ‘Lil Angler II’.
The 2013 Striper Tournament will run from October 18 till December 6. The entry fee includes a free tee shirt and weekly buffet every Friday night at Irish Eyes in Lewes from 5pm till 7pm.
There will be many door prizes provided by Charter boat captains, local businesses, and of course Bill’s Sport Shop.
Sign-up forms are now available in the store.

>> Paul, of BSS was out fishing at B buoy and the Old Grounds area this morning for 2 hours before he had to head in and get ready for work. It was difficult to leave when the fish were biting. He limited out with flounder using bucktails, squid and Gulp. He also had a double header of flounder on a tandem bucktail rig (that was a first for him) along with 3 keeper sea bass.
>> Capt Bill took Father Jim from Mary Mother of Peace, fishing again. They went to the same location and caught a lot of throw back flounder and sea bass. They then headed in to Site 10 and got into the croaker big time. They returned with a keeper flounder and lots of croaker caught mainly on Gulp, clams and shiners. All in all, it was a great day fishing.
>> John Shelalis finally broke down and tried Gulp! for the first time. He went to B Buoy and used a 6" swimming mullet and came back with flounder at 20, 26 and 28”. We now have a new Gulp! customer!!!!
>> Brandon Carl Boyer, St. Thomas, PA, had a blast catching numerous fat croakers in the 12-13" range on "My Sanity" using clams.
>> Chris Shultz, Dover, PA, caught a nice flounder weighing in at 4.25#, 24”, in Ocean City while fishing on "My Sanity".
>> The Wasniewski party consisting of five Johns and Nolan, fished with ‘Gale Force Charters’ on Saturday near the Lightship. The group caught over 40 flounder keeping 11 along with 2 sea bass on minnows and cut bait.
>> We’re getting some real hot reports from the Wall...Big spot, huge croaker, and keeper flounder!!!
