    Who was the lucky recipient of the kayak drawing for the Hobie worlds qualifier?

    1. Anthony D

      Eric Harrison won the Hobie worlds qualifier as the top kayak division angler (most inches released: top 10 fish I believe)

  3. LOU

    WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE GUY WHOS NAME WAS PICKED FOR THE BOAT AND WASNT THERE FOR THE DRAWING LAST YEAR ? DID HE EVER GET COMPENSATED ? DID HE GET ANYTHING ?

    1. SurfCat

      Why would he be compensated? It’s clearly stated you must be present to win. He wasn’t present, therefore he gets nothing.

  4. Jim Landers

    Great job! 2018 was my first time and I volunteered during the day and can’t wait until next year! Great Job!

  5. John

    Won’t join next year because I cannot get away for striper fest being in NJ it’s an overnight trip. I have duties at our church. I thought every member had an entry for the boat.
