Trash Fish tournament June 2022

Summer here in North Florida isn’t know for its abundance of dinner fish on the beach. The water is usually warm, and we tend to find that while there are fish to be caught, few people that fish are excited about Ladyfish, Catfish, Stingrays, and Croaker/Spot.

So we decided to make the best of it and held a club event to see who can catch the most trash fish by length. Wouldn’t you know though – when you get over 100 years of fishing expertise together, instinct takes over and we ended up catching only 3 trash fish, but plentiful (if short) whiting and Pompano. A nice Blacktip was also beached!

Special thanks goes out to The Sinker Guy for providing tape to measure with!
