The famed Long Beach Island Fishing Club’s “World Series of Surf Fishing,” Harvey Cedars, took place Saturday in brisk south wind conditions. Smaller blues lit up the scoreboard.
Over 35 teams participated, with LBI’s Brant Beach Rod and Reel club snagging a highly respectable 3rd Place, with 15 weighable fish -- only one behind the total fish count of the first-place team, Fishin Fuzz, which I’m betting is a team of law enforcement types.
The Brant Beach team was anchored by Bill Montra, who became a bluefishing machine, taking 8 of the team’s ten point-garnering tailors, including the second largest blue of the entire contest, an 18.75-incher. Ray Curnew pulled in the team’s other two blues.
Important points also came via 1-point fish, classified as “others.” Ray Sullivan was something else in the “others’ realm, nabbing three points out of five points from “others.” Mike Kane and Ray C. took the other one-pointers.
The points represented the length of a fish. Bill’s 18.75 tallied 18.75 points.
LBI’s Barnegat Heavers “B” Team also finished high in the World Series, with an 11th Place finish.
The Heaver boys managed 76.75 pts, via six bluefish and one ”other.” Bob Massa had three of those blues while Jim Braak took two. The highest point getter, 17.00, was taken by Joe T.
