I just got home from the Ocean City Fishing Center after fishing with my son Ryan in the 16th Annual September 11th Memorial Spot Tournament and we had an absolute blast. This tournament was set up after the horrifying events of September 11, 2001 when our great nation fell under attack and was forever changed. The September 11 Spot Tournament helps us get together with friends and family and fellow Americans to have fun on a day that we will never forget. Here are the winners.
