62 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 7 - June 13, 1996 Keith Blake survives weather to win Milford Weakfish Tourney By Michael Short Keith Blake won last week's World Championship Weakfish Tournament with a 6.24 pound fish. But the bigger news last week was the weather. Jean Pikus of the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Milford likes to say the tournament needs two things--good fishing and good weather. This tournament had one of the two. Fishing was consistently good with good numbers of trout, including a few very nice fish. The weather was another story. Fishing was canceled on May 28, the first day of the five day tournament. On May 29, fishing started an hour and a half late. The next day, calm weather at the 8 a.m. starting time changed and whipped up four foot seas on Delaware Bay by 9 a.m. That turned the first three days of the tournament into an en- durance event----of sorts. Despite that, Pikus said the tournament "went really well." The tournament is an annual fish- ing highlight for anglers which of- fers the tempting bait of $25,000 for a fish shattering the world record mark. Pikus, the special events coordinator for the Cham- ber, said the Chamber decided not to make up the first day of the tournament after it was rained out. Here's a breakdown of the win- ners from the tournament which ran May 28 to June 1.
