The 2014 Rhumbline Striper Tournament was completed yesterday and attached are some photos of the winners and Fred handing out prizes. It was a slow day of fishing with many of the “heavy hitters” being shutout and not even weighing in a fish, but everyone always has a blast at the Rhumbline and the food and festivities weren’t suppressed at all by a little rain. Of course Fred (as always) had a great bunch of raffle prizes and kept the crowd entertained.
Here are your winners:
1st Place – Herb White – 30.66 pounds
2nd Place – Roger Brisson – 22.90 pounds
3rd Place – Domenic SanFilippo – 14.72 pounds
Hope everyone comes out again next year!

Anthony Is Getting Set Up To Bait Up Some Lobster Traps
When Anthony Flexes His Bicep Eve Shakes Her Ass
When he flexes it he says “Dance for me baby, dance for me.”
Hey Joe Attached are 2 pics of the shark we caught last week.
Last week onboard one of our inshore striped bass charters we stumbled across this shark while fishing with live mackerel for bait. The frightening part of the encounter was that we were up in Gloucester Harbor. We caught a second one that measured slightly over 5 feet long. Can anyone identify this thing?

Don’t miss the premiere of this very special Local Music Seen with Allen Estes tomorrow night at 6:30 on Cape Ann TV Channel 12. This special was shot on location at Alchemy Bistro (at the same time as Nat Geo was shooting) and Mile Marker One. Allen gets some of the Wicked Tuna captains to tell him what music they play aboard ship for good luck catching fish. Then he performs his Howard Blackburn hit “Not With Ya Hands” for them. Mix in a Wicked Tuna Seafood Throwdown and a few other surprises for a show you don’t want to miss. Here’s a short preview of the energy you can expect from this show!
