Fluke Masters Tournament

 

 

Dave Lilly of Hazlet figured he'd had a good day of fluking with a five fish total of about 26 pounds, and with the southeast wind coming up he decided to weigh in early for what would likely be a runner-up position in the 14th annual Fluke Masters Tournament at Leonardo. He was surprised when an angler weighing in at the same time had almost 40 pounds -- but that turned out to be insignificant as this contest may have produced the toughest fluke competition of all time. Lilly was at the Leonardo Fire House to get the results, and was amazed that one boat brought in a huge 16.1-pound doormat -- only to be beaten for the Calcutta by a last minute 16.2-pounder

 

When it came to the five-fish totals, the winning weight was an incredible 47.26 pounds that barely edged a bag of 46.52 pounds. The next two spots went to boaters with 39.3 and 39.01 pounds. I have no names for the winning crews at this writing. As good as the fishing was, Lilly said he had wind against tide while fishing in the ocean during early morning, and than a roaring southeast wind that required;very heavy sinkers after that

LOL, better look into those details and numbers as the tourny scale was suspect during the entire weigh period. There werent any 16# fluke weighed in let alone two of them...
