dress warmer than you think you need. The 2nd place fish was caught on a bloodworm in the last one I fished in. 15 hours fishing with my son and we averaged 1 skate every 3 hours, lol. take chairs, a tarp to block the wind, small propane grill for hot food, etc. you will meet alot of fishermen and fisher ladies out there.

what are the prizes for winning this tournement?
I'm not sure what the prizes are. You'll have to check the link up there for that. To the best of my knowledge, it's based on the number of participants. At $5 a head, it's definitely not going to be much if they award cash prizes at all. It would be more of a "bragging" rights thing. I might fish it just for the hell of it. I mean, what's five bucks to fish a tournament. Most tournaments around here are in the 200-300 dollar range for basic entry. I fished an offshore tournament in Aug., and I'm planning on fishing a striper tourney in January, so this one will be fun because it gives me a chance to be "competitive" for basically no cost. If I had to guess though, since it's so cheap, there will probably every moron and his brother fishing this thing, LOL!! I never heard about it until this year, so I don't know exactly how it's going to be. I'll probably swing over there and check it out.

Yeah, I'll be fishing it to Ian!!! Shooter, it was just a figure of speech when I said "every moron and his brother might be fishing this thing". Hopefully nobody took offense to it, but, if you did, that might tell you something about yourself....:D:p:fishing:

Shooter, standing on the beach/pier/boat talking does not equal fishing. Gotta shut that mouth and put a line in the water son...;):D

remember once you get all suited its not gonna be enough. Take a car full of extra clothes as you will see that may not even be enough. If you happen to take to much you can always sell the extra clothes for 3 times what you paid for them as you never have enough on out there. That wind will blow right thru an anartic suit so make sure once you think your set to add another 3 layers and good luck as I might see ya out there

I know that's the truth. I just got home from the pier, and it's already getting cold out there. Wish I had dragged along some thermals. With a heavy sweatshirt and a jacket, it was still a bit nippy to say the least!
