This past Saturday we hosted our annual Ladies Shoal Troll fishing tournament and Mother Nature came through big time with an absolute perfect day. We had 20 boats and 70 women anglers out there fishing and by 3pm some really nice fish had been weighed in. OAC President Mary Miller took the top honors in bass with a nice 20 lber on Sea Hunter and Michelle Tovano on Miss Behavin had the first place chopper at 14 lbs. Caroline Lewis took first for youth with a nice 10.25 lb blue. Here are the complete results:

Jaxtimer, Crosby Yacht Yard, Morgan Stanley, Bridge Publishing, Cape Cod Marine Trade Association, Clay Family, Tobin Family and the Torbey Family.

Frieda Bilezikian sure looks proud of her catch. She earned a derby shirt for this nice fish!

The following members helped make it such a nice event: Carol Torbey, Justin Murphy, Ken Molloy, Dave Ryan, Chris Bedenkop, George and Dianne Scheppler, Bruce Cunningham and Sue Ellen Tagg, Kelly Bolton, Cathy Heather Lindsay and Caroline Lewis and the Wollensak boys!

The following helped for some great prizes and give aways: Pelagic Gear, Granger Pottery in Sandwich, Alex and Ani, Kellogg Marine Supply, Cape Cod Beer and Puritan Clothing.

Missy already has things rolling for next year’s event.
