Mid Atlantic Rockfish Shootout!! Mega Fish-Mega Bucks

What is hailed as the largest Rockfish Tournament on the East Coast, or maybe even the world, shot off with a bang this week. Three days of rather fantastic fishing. With over $200,000 in prize money, anglers were eager to land the three biggest fish of the day.

There are two classes. artificial and an open division. Our buddy Max King held the lead in the open division, however on the last day got beat out and he took second place. Congrads to all the winners and congrads to Mike Standing and everyone involved with the Shootout. A fantastic event that just gets bigger every year.
