E-News for August 6th, 2012 
Joe Cronin Jimmy Fund Fishing Tournament

This past Friday a fleet of 67 boats fished in the 19th annual charity bass & bluefish tournament. The event raised over $450,000 for the Jimmy Fund. Member E.J. Jaxtimer runs the entire event and many OAC members serve on the committee and donate their boats for the day. Next year marks the 20th anniversary and the planning will start very soon.

  

Tuna Fishing is off the charts

There have been multiple reports of great tuna fishing east of Chatham. OAC member Mak Kariotis caught several during the Cronin tournament. Dave Reid reports an epic day this past Friday with Captain Terry Nugent on Riptide Charters. They landed 11 tuna and had non stop action all day. Sanford Hochman also got in the action with a tuna in recent days.

  

Going Offshore Fishing or on a Long Trip? Rent an EPIRB

Member Ken Cirillo has suggested this link that allows recreational boaters to rent an EPIRB (allows you to send for help via satellite when you are out of VHF and cell range). A good thing to have if you are chasing tuna east of Chatham or other game fish south of the Vineyard.
