If so, it would be good to meet up!

For those who don't know what this is, it's a kayak fishing only tournament (catch and release only) based in Salem, MA. No prizes for any catches (except bragging rights), but one hell of a raffle table that everyone has a shot at winning...

Yeah freakin' slow day in an area that has been producing well for me!

I managed one 10-12lb fish and that was it!

Tourney is catch and release so no weights, but a 46 incher won the open division and a 47 incher won the artificial division. 2nd and 3rd place finishers were low 40 inches...

as usual ... Slappy won and all the big fish were caught at night

that's true Chris! Slappy won the artificial division, but the open (a.k.a. eel or T&W) division was somebody different!

I caught a 20" Schoolie..., enjoyed meeting several nekf anglers from Jersey to Ontario. The BBQ was awesome! Met Rockport24, but didn't get an opportunity to fish with him. Maybe next time we'll take you up on the offer to guide us around.
