2015/2016 Striper Mafia Tournament Series
Presented by Captain's Quarters Bait & Tackle, the Striper Mafia is hosting a "CPR" (Catch-Photo-Release) tournament series on Smith Mountain Lake, VA. Events will be held in November, December, March & April during which the "slot" is in place to protect our larger fish, and be conducted in a "Catch-Photo-Release" style. The format will feature an early morning captain's meeting at a location to be defined to review the rules and hand out approved measuring devices & photo token cards and "lines in water" will follow at safe-light as designated for each tournament, with the "check-in" at a time to be determined later that day.
Halesford Harbour Inn will serve as our Tournament Headquarters for the events. The pre-dawn Captains Meetings and the Check-ins / Awards will be held at this location. Participants will be able to use the ramp at Halesford Harbour if needed to launch & recover after the tournament.
Halesford Harbour Inn will also be the official hotel of the Striper Mafia Tournament Series. Discounted room rates will be available for participants of the series - please request the Striper Mafia rate when calling to make a reservation.
