It was a beautiful day today for my 11th Annual Flounder Pounder with my brothers from Sigma Pi fraternity at Towson State. We had an awesome time on the Bay Bee today with Captain Cale Layton and mate Joe Marowski and caught 25 or more throwback Flounder and two keepers. There was a four way tie for most fish with four Flounder And I took the biggest Flounder money with a nice 18 inch keeper that I caught on our Fish In OC Croaker Smoker. This trip is always an awesome time with great friends!
Today was also the second and final day of the Ocean City Marlin club Heels and Reels tournament and it was another good day at the scales. Thanks to Amanda Shick for all of the coverage and great photos! Here are your winners.
