Well, it was another good year. With great weather off the coast except for some fog.
The big winner this year was Central Coast Autism Spectrum Center. This year the Slam Down raised $4500 for them. This is enough to send almost 60 kids to Camp Expedition next summer.
Seemed the bite was tough for most up and down the coast with only a couple over 20 score cards being turned in out of the 92 anglers fishing this years tournament.
As for the big winner for the Tournament that would be Mark Hawley with an impressive stringer. His big fish being a Lingcod at 31.5 inches and then a Cabezon at 21.75 inches and a 21 inch rockfish to round it out. Impressive any year especially on a day which seemed to be a tough bite. This stringer brought home a grand total of $3000.00 dollars.
2nd place brought in by Jayse Hochleutner with another great stringer was a pig of a Cabezon at 23 inches and a fat 22 inch Rockfish and then finished it up with a 27 inch Lingcod. Winning him a total of $1800.00
3rd place was brought in by Chris Fishback with some solid fish of his own a 29 inch Lingcod, a 19.5 inch Rockfish and a 21 inch Cabezon. With this catch he took home $800.00
Was a great event again this year and want to take the time to thank everyone that came out and enjoyed the weekend with us. Hope to see you all again in 2017.
Till then Tight Lines,
