Since the demise of the Oriental Rotary Club tarpon tournament, the locals have kept alive an annual friendly competition. A dozen of the best tarpon fishermen in the state got together for a skate fest. Plenty of stingrays, we ran out of bait and threw in the towel at 2:30 after about 50 skate releases. Capt. Greg and several others who made the long run started seeing some fish, landing this beauty at 3:37 for the only fish of the tournament and good enough for the win.
Greg has bragging rights for a year.
