An avid angler in the Cape re- gion, I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that Hall was trying to form a women-oniy fishing club. The first organizational meeting of the club will be this Tuesday evening beginning at 7 p.m. at Fisherman's Wharf on the canal in Lewes. All anglers of the female persuasion are invited. If you need more information, call Suzanne Racz at R&R Sports Center at 645-9801. Steve Hoenic mann TOURNEY RESULTS - The trout fishing in Delaware Bay has been great the last few weeks, and that proved to be a bonanza for an- glers fishing in the 17th annual World Championship Weakfish Tournament sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of Mil- ford. More than 60 boats and 300 fishermen participated in the five- day tourney, which concluded Saturday, June 3. While no one caught a world record weakfish (the $25,000 re- ward will have to wait until next year), there were plenty of nice fish landed, including the 10.26- pound trout caught by Mike Tay- lor which topped the field. Here's a list of the results Coe- ginning with first place): Weakfish (male anglers): Mike Taylor, Lincoln, 10.26; Steve Thomas, Newark, 7.50; Dave Richards, Coatesville, Pa., 7.01; Ray Davis, Conestoga, Pa., OUTDOORS 6.94; Eric Nicholous, Lancaster, Pa., 6.89; Dave Slaughter, Cam- den, 6.19; Chris Magnolia,, 5.52; Irvin Webb, Milford, 5.32; Joe Zalaski, Coatesville, 5.23; tie - John Webb of Milford and Ray Davis of Conestoga, 5.04; Luke Keiter, Royersford, Pa., 5.02; Todd Stevenson, Milford, 4.88; Jessy Wiggins, Christiana, Pa., 4.77; Rick Willey, Seaford, 4.70; Ray Davis, Conestoga, 4.65; John Webb, Milford, Milford, 4.64; Steve Quesada, Georgetown, 4.60; Scott FIanagan, Townsend, 4.54; Ray Davis, Conestoga, 4.49; and Rick WilIey, Seaford, 4.43.

Kingfish: Donald Culp, Glen Mills, Pa., 1.12. There were no entries in the croaker division. WHAT'S HAPPENING - The trout fishing remains strong in Delaware Bay, according to Gene Racz at R&R Sports Center near Five Points. Racz said hot spots include the Broadkill, any of the structures, the lighthouses, the Sheers and the rock piles off of Lewes. Wayne Beach checked in a near-citation trout that weighed 10.60 last week - a fish that would have been good enough to win the Weakfish Tournament. He added that mako fishing has really turned on with anglers heading out about 10 to 15 miles to A buoy and beyond. Most are chumming with mackerel or cut blue fish. Big bluescan be found on the northeast grounds at the Pimple, and flounder seem to be plentiful in the northeast comer of the an- chorage on up to 14-foot light. The Sheers and the canal in Lewes also are producing some nice flounder. Racz added that striper action seems to be best at night, with the most active spots being the Rips and the Sheers. Striper have been spotty down at Indian River Inlet, but snapper blues and an occa- sional trout will be the reward for patience. CONTEST CONTINUES- The Grotto Grand Slam/Silstar Fishing Tournament for the bene- fit of the Shields Elementary School playground fund drive is in full swing. Anglers can still sign up for the tourney, which lasts through Aug. 31, by stopping by R&R Sports Center on Route 1, just south of Five Points. For more specific information, call 645-9801. Tournament leaders to date in- clude Craig Karsnitz in the floun- der division with a fish that weighed in at 4.93 pounds; Butch Van Drunen in the trout division with two fish that weighed in at 6.95 and 6.83, respectively; Larry Marvel in the blue fish division with a fish that weighed in at 10.32; and Bill Wagamon in the striper division with a fish that tipped the scales at 28.42 pounds. The overall leader is James Gladysz. Opportunitg Knocking At Your Door ! NNSt Luxurg Homesites offering WaterviN.
