Rey Muniz, a skilled Jersey togger, took everyone’s pool money with his 21.75 in female that he tagged and released.

David Hoang of Clarksburg MD boated a pollock – odd for these parts, especially on crab.
Ryan Martin of Lancaster PA got to tag his first ever tog – an undersized female we might learn from.
Dae Yoon of Korea kept a good male.
