Madness on the Marshyhope

Type: Tidal
Region: Eastern
Location: Marshyhope Creek

I participated in the weigh-in for the Second Annual Madness on the Marshyhope Blue Catfish Tournament at the Town of Federalsburg marina. It was another great success, with over 50 anglers fishing for blue catfish on 15 boats! Together they pulled 198 blue catfish totalling 436.2 pounds! The largest blue catfish and first place for heaviest fish was caught by Makennah Peer - 26.9 lbs.

The organizers and sponsors were Town of Federalsburg, Caroline County Public Schools, Coastal Conservation Association of Maryland (CCA), Caroline County Recreation and Parks, VFW POST 5246 Federalsburg MD, WIN Transport, Federalsburg Lions Club, Pep-up, Bee's Energy, MDE, and DNR Fishing and Boating Services.
