165 fishermen registered for the 9th Annual Striped Bass Tournament. Out of 22 fish that weighed in at the tournament, Bill Peaslee's 32.1 pound and 41 inches long Striper took him the 1st place win! This time of year, is prime time fishing for striped bass. Striped bass will follow the herring from the ocean all the way up to the Hudson River to Troy, making it easy for anyone willing to cast there line out for a big Striper. This year proceeds from the 9th Annual Striped Bass Tournament will be donated to Military Moms in Action as well as the Troy Flag Day parade. Over 220 fishermen participated in the tournament this year, some traveling from other states. It was a great time this year, hopefully the next one is just as good.
