Halibut Striper Fishing Derby, Oyster Point Marina a Huge Success.
Coastside Fishing Club's 2014 OPM Classic Halibut and Striper Derby attracted over 130 anglers seeking fame and fortune on Saturday, June 21, 2014. Participants caught many halibut and striped bass and brought them to the weigh-in at Drake Marine at Oyster Point Marina. There were ten winners total in the Adult and Youth Categories. All winning fish were halibut.
In addition to $3000 in “big fish” cash prizes, Coastside provided a free raffle with over $2500 in goodies including a charter donated by Reel-Lentless Sportfishing and fishing tackle from P-Line and Bay Tackle. Coastside's celebrated Grill Crew served up delicious burgers and dogs.
Youths registered without charge and were eligible for the raffle and special prizes. In addition, each youth received a t-shirt, lunch, and a free rod and reel courtesy of Outdoor Pro Shop.
An event like the 2014 OPM Classic does not come together without the generous donation of time by volunteers and the contributions of sponsors.
