>From the staff at Bill's Sport Shop: We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy and Prosperous New Year filled with a lot less wind especially on weekends.
There's still time to purchase GIFT CARDS, T's, rods, reels, electric knives, clam openers, crab pots, hooks, rod holders for vehicles and an endless list of goodies for your fisherperson? Gift Cards never go out of date and can be used all at once or over a period of time.
The Striper/Tog tournament was a great success. Many thanks to all who participated as well as the Wharf Restaurant who provided excellent fare for the nine Friday nights. A special thanks to Bill, Jr. who coordinated all the registration sign-ups and door prizes. The community came together to support the endeavor by donating many items to make the evenings fun and exciting. Please support the businesses and charter boats who generously donated the prizes.

Mark your calander for our annual flea market which will be held April 2.
The Founder Tournament dates are May 1st to June 10th.
The Striper Tournament will be Oct. 28th to Dec. 2nd.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Cedar Creek Bait and Tackle who had a devasting fire this past weekend destroying their shop and residence. Many items were stolen before the fire was set. More information can be found on the SALTFISH Forum.
> >Sue Foster, Oyster Bay Tackle, OC reported a few stripers from the surf. One lucky angler got into a blitz of stripers one night last week. A few stripers were reported offshore.
> >Capt. Carey Evans, "Grizzly Sportfishing" continued to see good numbers of tog and have seen some big numbers of stripers. They have remained tied to the dock due to winds more days than they care to.
They will be fishing thru the New Year and will resume fishing for tog and stripers in March 2011.
