Ladies Shoal Troll: Bass, Blues & Wicked Tuna!

 

OK…there are fish stories and there are FISH stories. This past Saturday during the Ladies Shoal Troll, it was just another bluefish caught….but as it was reeled back to the boat, the line went tight and started singing off the reel…a large fish had taken the blue and it was identified by Captain Les Shwam as an 800 lb. giant bluefin tuna…it was a short battle, the tuna spit the blue and was gone.

 

We had 16 boats and 56 women fishing. We raised over $11,000 for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and had fun doing it. Thanks to member George Scheppler for setting up and running a great weigh station and thanks to member Dave Ryan for having an outstanding Oyster raw bar. There were some nice fish caught, and 10-year old Rachel Dwyer won Youth Division with a 10.3 lb. blue. Results are listed below.
