Heroes on the Water fishing

This past Saturday, Sharkbite Bucktails/Brinkman’s Bait and Tackle co sponsored a fishing event with Heroes on the Water at Falls Twp. Lake. South Jersey chapter Director George Daly and I were able to put this event together along with support from Mission Barbeque of Philadelphia who provided an outstanding lunch for the participants and Woolford bait and tackle sales who donated bait for the anglers. The Hal Brown corporation also donated fishing gear. Participants attending were from various branches of the service. Some.of the local Bass club participants also were present. Thanks for joining us Bob and Joe! Lots of fish observed jumping and a few bass were caught. Just great to see some smiles and give back to our veterans who have served for us.

1st Annual Sharkbite Bucktails/Brinkman’s Catfish Tournament recap

Sharkbite Bucktails/Brinkman’s 1st annual Catfish tournament recap


The 1st annual Catfish tournament was held Sunday August 26th on the Delaware river. 110 Participants had entered the contest, seeking to catch the largest catfish for weigh in. Weather was perfect, but winds did kick up the river and stir up some grass pushing to the banks and impacting some accesses.  There were several weigh-ins completed in the mens, womens, and youth divisions. Thank you to those who participated in the catch and release concept and allowed fish to be placed for others to now catch. The men’s division was close but thewomen’s was even closer for top two positions. But, the best was the young lady and her brother who weighed in a 10lb and 6lb catfish each which were the heaviest for all three divisions The 1st place winners will each be receiving cash prizes and the young lady will be receiving a special trophy donated by the Women’s Surf Fishing Club of NJ inc. for having the largest fish caught during the tournament. I want to thank the Kosty/Martinelli family and my family personally for their unwavering support to put this together with me and be an integral part of it’s success. Thank you! I also want to thank the sponsors of prizes listed below who donated for the event and ask that you please visit them and support their businesses also.
