Manistee Results

Post by Last Dime » Thu Aug 16, 2018 1:17 am

The SOTY Manistee tournament was held this past Saturday, August 11. There were more than a few surprises at this event. First off, infrequent participant Skipper Gabe McDougall & his crew of the “Jawbreaker” pulled off the win with a 4 fish catch worth 80.55 pts. Nicely done, Captain & Crew!! That’s a 15lb. average fish size. Awesome guys!

There was a great showing of 15 boats including 2 guest boats. As you may know, as a means to attract Club members we allow guest Non-member Skippers with their boats and crews to participate. Their scores don’t actually count in the tournament nor do they get any points towards the Skipper of the Year Award. We charge them $10 per person to cover the cost of the food provided for lunch. That’s why the $10 total entry fee per boat for members is such a great deal! Guest skippers can also enter the Big Fish Pool for $20 as that is a side activity to the SOTY tournaments. Skipper Hunter Carruthers and his crew of the “Huntress” and Skipper Jan Burger and the crew of “LowBidder” were the 2 guest boats. Hunter had a few surprises of his own! His 5 fish catch worth 113.35 pts would have easily won the tournament! Plus he won the Big King pool for $150 and the Big Lake Trout pool for another $75. The Big Steelhead pool was won by “Moonshot” Skipper Brad Walton by the luck of the draw as there were no Steelhead weighed-in. Club member James Lorenzetti, Skipper of “The Office” weighed in a 24.8 lb. King while not winning the BIg King pool is in the lead so far for Big King of the Year. Nice going Jim! All in all, there were 29 Kings weighed in of which 9 were over 20 lbs.

Port Captain Tom Gorguze had a fantastic luncheon which included barbecue chicken, Mac ‘n cheese, Cole slaw and chocolate cake for dessert plus the usual cold sodas and water.Nice job and Thanks, Tom! It was a pretty decent event and I am sure everyone had a pretty good time. See you all in Rogers City for the final one!
