And they are pretty impressive for a striped bass fishing tournament.
Eighth-annual Mid-Atlantic Rockfish Shootout overall winner Daddy’s Dream 3, which edged Wave Runner by less than a pound, banked $73,453. Wave Runner’s runner-up take of $34,833 wasn’t too shabby either.
Third place Bay Custom 3 walked away with $20,596.
The total payout for the event was $145,740 and brings the overall total payout for the shootout history to more than $1 million.
Congratulations to all in the field of 169 teams who competed for three days in some pretty frigid temperatures.
And congrats to founder and tournament director Mike Standing for another fantastic event.
