Rough seas led to tough times fishing for NNAC tournament

The Northern Neck Anglers Club (NNAC) two-day Flounder Bash Tournament, initially scheduled for June 24 and 25, was reduced to one day of competition due to adverse weather conditions.

Small Craft Advisories (SCA) on June 24 forced cancellation of Saturday as a tournament fishing day, reported vice president and tournament director Mark Roy.

No SCAs were posted for Sunday, therefore the tournament was held as a one-day event, said Roy. Although no SCA was posted, by mid-day seas were two to three feet and several members headed to the dock early.

It was a tough day to be anchored and chumming for cobia or drift bottom fishing at trolling speeds, he said.
