Are any of you guys members of, or familiar with the Hudson River Fishermans Association? I just got a membership package from them and am thinking about joining. Sounds like a good group to get involved with. Only cost $25 a year...They have a lot of Tournaments during the year, the first being for Stripers and Bluefish starting May 10th.with a $100,000 grand prise for biggest Striper over 50 lbs. and Bluefiosh over 20 lbs....Thought I'd give it a shot, You can check it out on www.stripedbassderby .com
