The catch of the day

Over 160 take part in fishing tourney

The Shoreline fishing tournament fundraiser for Tiana Tacub-Guillermo Weigh-in was a successful event. The tourney was held on Sunday at Salt Pond Park. There were over 160 competitors in the event.

The rain and cold weather didn’t stop those die hard fans from showing their support.

For those who did get lucky and caught some fish, they went home with some first class prizes, along with door prizes for a lot of supporters. Thanks to the many sponsors.
