Day 1 of the 23rd Annual MSSA Fall Classic is wrapped up and there are some really nice fish on the board.  Here’s how things shake out right now with tomorrow left to fish.

Main Tournament

Place    Captain         Fish                    Check-In Station

1              Greg Buckner       42.7lbs/47″            Calvert Marina – Solomons
2              Jamie Romero     42 lbs/47″              Calvert Marina – Solomons
3              Dave Bailey         18.65 lbs/35.5″       Rod N Reel – Chesapeake Beach

The 2nd place fish was caught by Jamie Romero while fishing on the Never Enuff with Captain Shawn Pruitt.  The big rock was 47″ long and weighed in at 42 pounds.


The first place fish is this beautiful 42.7 pound rockfish that was also 47″ and was caught on board the Miss Susie II with Captain Greg Buckner.


I got a report of some decent tautog fishing from the north jetty in the Ocean City inlet from my buddy Nick Denny.  Nick caught some throwback size tog and had a guy fishing next to him that had several tog with one keeper.  Fish were all caught on green crabs.
