Another Successful MSSA Annapolis Chapter Spring Trophy Rockfish Tournament for 2016
The 5 th Annual MSSA Annapolis Chapter Spring Trophy Rockfish Tournament benefiting The EVAN Foundation had an awards cookout on May 14, 2016. This year there were a record number of tournament entrants and fish checked in, the largest first place fish, and the biggest turnout ever for the awards cookout held at Chesapeake Harbour Marina in Annapolis. Adam’s Taphouse and Grille provided delicious barbeque and thanks to our sponsors, every entrant walked away with prizes.
