This past Saturday, we had a client charter the Karen Lynn for the Boston Striper Shootout Tournament with a $5k winner take all purse, for the longest fish. We had the 250 gallon livewell packed with live herring and mackeral and lines in the water at 5:00 AM. We had steady action all day releasing about 18 fish in the 34″-40″ with a few a little bigger. We knew that to win we needed a fish over 46″ and we fished right up to the 5:00 PM deadline. Unfortuately that effort and some serious traffic made us miss the 6:00 PM weigh-in in Chelsea by 10 minutes! Not Good. The winning fish was monster at 48 1/2″ so we would have been likely 4th place at best had we made it on time. A fun day of great fishing with a frustrating ending.
