Quality time with their catch at Bayside. Quality time with their catch at Bayside. Cathy from Bayside reports quite an exciting week as the boaters were just crushing the stripers. It all happened just in time for the inaugural American Legion Fall Shoot Out Striper Tournament- which was a huge success, raising money for Fisher House.

First place, biggest fish and the boat Calcutta went to the Jaimie Louise with Tony Tartaglia reeling in the big ones and Jim Spente as captain.

The heaviest fish was Tony's 31.2-pound striper. Second place was the Quality Time with Rick and son Dave Mitchell and Craig Felice. Third place went to Claude Paul Savino and his crew.

No fish were caught off the beach so it was luck of the draw.
