By any measure, our Annual Meeting/Awards Night/30th Anniversary Gala was a success.   Noisy, well-attended, fun, laughter, good food and tales about the one that got away.
 
When it was decided to host the event at The Chart Room, no-one envisioned filling the facility.  In fact we did and participation was up 60% over last year’s event.
    
Bruce Cunningham welcomed all and expressed thanks to the members of the board and tournament committee for their hard work (over the chant of “four more years”). Ken Cirillo summarized the “state of the club”, including financials, membership levels, corporate sponsor program and the OAC scholarship fund. A special note of thanks to Fran Clay and Ann Marie Tenaglia for helping organize, plan and make the event such a success.     
 
Bob Lewis then commenced announcing the winners of the many awards, and everyone was in awe of the awards this year. Please see the many photos below.

The Richard B Sellars One Day Bass Tournament was held this past Saturday in picture-perfect conditions.  We had 6 boats out fishing and the results can be summarized in two words- Sam Jaxtimer or BULL SHARK.
 
On Steve Tenaglia’s boat, a nice 32″ bass hit a plug inside Poppy Bay…good to hear about better fish inshore.  Bruce Cunningham and Ken Cirillo found some nice schools False Albacore near Monomoy, which kept their rods bent for a couple hours.  Frank Torbey and Rich Haskell caught a couple solid double digit bluefish.   A great time was had by all.  Here are the results:

OK, where to start?!  Last week was most interesting, inspiring & fun!  Let’s start with the most obvious: A special thanks to E.J. Jaxtimer, Sam and his crew for all of the work to transform the front of the club house.  It looks better than great!  Please see landscaping photos below of before, during & after.
 
Please see updated Derby results below.  Positions in the Youth Division changed as Jack Bunnell landed two beautiful King Mackerels.  See photos below.
 
Re the Derby, please note that the Black Sea Bass season CLOSES 9/12/2018. 
 
And, last Thursday evening’s cocktail party was well attended (62 members & guests) and a great time had by all. Special thanks to Dave Ryan who supplied us his great oysters, Ann Marie Tenaglia with her lobster & crab stuffed mushrooms, dishes brought by Kathy Low and Steve Bunnell all contributed to a fun-filled, successful evening.

In case you missed it, here is a reprint of the article posted in the Cape Cod Times about the Ladies Shoal Troll.
 

“Fish caught, money raised in war against breast cancer
The Ladies Shoal Troll is nothing if not colorful.
Since proceeds benefit Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, many (most) of the participants wear pink shirts and some go so far as to get custom hats made for their crew. The event is held at the Osterville Anglers Club at their supreme clubhouse down on Crosby Basin.
Right next door sits Bill Koch’s place. Full flags flying from the 12-meter racing yacht he uses as a lawn ornament. There was a wedding going on there. Security was tight. I visibly worried the valets when I pulled up in my old rust bucket, but I was heading for the fishing tournament.
There were some true “gator” blues at the weigh-in and the winner was Brenna McCoubrey’s lunker 14.85-pounder.
Tamra Haspel won for biggest striped bass with a rock solid 25-pounder that was nearly as big as the second and third place bass combined.
Tamar is a very interesting person. She and her husband Kevin Flaherty own an oyster grant in Barnstable Harbor and grow, raise, hunt and kill much of their diet. Tamar writes a blog called Starving off the Land about how they moved from Manhattan to the Cape and now do things like raise pigs for food.
Seventy-six women competed on 22 boats and they raised over $17,000 for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, which keeps the money local.
Way to go, ladies!”  CC Times
- – - – -  
Arrived at the club this morning to many emails with great fishing results of the weekend. Kitty Kania caught a 262 lb Porbeagle (Shark), Sam Jaxtimer landed a monster 466 lb Bluefin tuna, Michael Singer a 7.9 lb fluke and Jackson Friel (a Sponsored Youth member) a 23.9 lb striped bass.  Please see the OAC Derby updates below.
 
 
     

 

     

Please mark your calendar- the OAC is having a youth scavenger hunt August 21st from 4-6pm. Members with children or grandchildren under 16 are encouraged to join us for a boat scavenger hunt around Three Bays in search of various items. Don’t worry if you do not have a boat- you are still welcome to participate and we will find a spot on a boat for you.  If anyone is willing to take on a few extra passengers, that would be great.  

Please RSVP to the Club bu August 10th.
Do NOT forget the life jackets for the children.

By any standard, the 2018 Ladies Shoal Troll was a gigantic success!
 
Number of women participants:     76
Number of boats:                   22
Money raised for Making Strides   $17,000+
Biggest fish:                        25.35 lbs
Fun & smiles:                         everyone
 
I must admit when I arrived at OAC this past winter the work on the Ladies Shoal Troll had already begun.  The flyer was printed in January and I had absolutely no idea what all the hype was about.  Now I know!
 
Let’s start with the cause: funds raised will benefit American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer ON Cape Cod.  The proceeds are put to use locally- free rides to/from cancer treatment centers for patients on the Cape, helping women manage side effects of treatment, lodging at Boston Hope Lodge at no cost to CC patients -just to name a few.  
 
An event of this size requires two basic elements: organization and execution. Special thanks to Bob Lewis and Missy McGraw for a job well done!
 
Please see the tournament results below as well as the updated YTD Sellars Points.
 
And, a few good photos.

For the inside Nantucket Sound division, Art Hughes had the 1st place bluefish on his boat and JR Magee had 3rd.  Frank Torbey picked up the first King Mackerel of the season and E.J. had a 2.75 lb Black Sea Bass.  There was a nice BBQ and awards dinner with live music at the Wianno Yacht Club following the tournament.

IMPORTANT CLUB UPDATES 

   

Change of Plans for Coggeshall Opener & Father’s Day Tournament 
 
Due to the weather conditions of this past weekend, we have moved the Larry Coggeshall Season Opener to this coming Sunday, June 3rd.  Therefore, if you didn’t sign up at the captain’s meeting, you still have plenty of time to sign up this week. Please email Bill or call Bob Lewis at 617-875-2200.  It looks like we will have at least 10+ boats for the Larry Coggeshall Season Opener.
 
And, the Father’s Day Tournament has also been rescheduled. It will now be held on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17th.  
 
 There is NO registration fee for OAC members and only $10 for your non member guests. You have to register your boat by Saturday night at 6 pm May 26th. Call Bill at the club or again, Bob Lewis at 617-875-2200.

Three Bays Spin/Fly Re-cap
This past Saturday we had a nice day for the Three Bays spin/fly tournament.  This is a catch and release event and the objective is to catch the greatest number of fish.  This year Frank Torbey came out on top for spin with 16 releases and John Lake was the top fly angler with 3 releases.  Ken Cirillo had a nice bluefish explode on his popper and weighed it for the derby…just shy of 12 lbs…not bad for North Bay!

Boatwise Safe Boating Certificate
Saturday June 2, 2018
The Club has organized a boat safety course taught by New England Maritime. This course is designed as a refresher course for adult boaters, spouses and youth members that are at least 12 years old and would like a license to operate a boat. In some cases, this certification can also lower your boat insurance premium.
The course will include a rather in depth discussion of navigational beacons, use of horns, proper fueling procedures and much more. The course will be conducted on Saturday, June 2nd , 8AM- 4PM, and the cost is $99/person. We already have the required 10 participants, so it is a go for sure. Please call the Club ASAP for details (508-420-4336) or email us at oac@ostervilleanglersclub.com

This past Saturday evening was the Opening Day 2018 dinner and the welcoming of new members.   
 
The event was a grand success due to the hard work of members Fran & Bob Clay, Peggy Cirillo and Ann Marie and Steve Tenaglia who made the center pieces, made appetizers and desserts and planned the menu catered by The Chart Room.
 
There wasn’t an empty seat to be had!

Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning

It is the number two cause of accidental death in children age 15 and under (just behind vehicle accidents). Of the approximately 750 children who will drown next year, about 375 of them will do so within 25 yards of a parent or other adult. In 10 percent of those drownings, the adult will actually watch them do it, having no idea it is happening. https://www.soundingsonline.com/voices/drowning-doesnt-look-like-drowning
