Everyone ready for a warm up to the Flounder Pounder Open? Want to win five thousand dollars? The Paradise Grill Bay Flounder Tournament is on Saturday July 15th, rain or shine. This is a great way to get the kids involved and they could win up to five hundred dollars and are eligible to win prizes in the adult categories. Largest fish is the largest fish in all categories for the kids. Kayakers can participate, due to the fact this is held in the inland bays. The same goes for those jet ski anglers, if it floats you can fish from it. You can also fish from land, and there are some decent spots to fish from land for folks that live in Pot Nets and those that fish at the Indian River inlet, or Masseys Landing. The southside and northside rock piles are good places to try, inside the bridge area. You could also wade the flats at New rd, Savages ditch, and Tower road bay accesses in Delaware Seashore State park. This tournament will benefit the Boys and Girls club in Oak Orchard. “Spend A Day In The Bay” we hope to see you out there.
