Plymouth 400 Bass and Blue this weekend

The Official Website of the
Plymouth 400
Commemoration

The fish took center stage at Union Fish Seafood as the Plymouth 400 Bass and Blue Tournament took over the deck June 27 for its “Captain, Crew and Land Lovers Dinner.” More than 40 sponsors and participants came together to share camaraderie among fishermen and tell tall tales of “the one that got away.”
It was the first Captains’ Dinner for the organizing committee, though the tournament is now in its second year. Last year’s tournament had more than 70 participants and 10 sponsors.
“That was a great showing for a first year tournament,” Peter Balboni, chairman of the tournament committee and a member of the Plymouth 400 Inc. organizing committee, said. “This year we’re way ahead of where we were in sponsorship and we’ll be able to offer over $4,000 in prizes. We’re hoping that the number of participants goes over 100 this year too.”
The dinner was put together to raise the excitement level and to reward some loyal sponsors. Union Fish partnered with lead sponsor, Bud Light, to create an atmosphere that was relaxed and low key. Guests had a choice of dishes created by head chef Brandon Babiarz, recently featured on an episode of Boston’s Phantom Gourmet. Adult attendees also received a complimentary Bud Light or Twisted Tea and everyone enjoyed a molten lava cake with bacon and sea salt crumbles for dessert.
“We had almost 50 people at the dinner, despite the fact that we had to move it back into June because of the July 4th holiday weekend,” Balboni said. “We were very happy and everyone had a great time. It set a great tone for this year’s tournament.”
The 2013 Plymouth 400 Bass and Blue will take place July 12-13. The tournament will be organized into divisions for boaters as well as shore-based participants, and there will be a separate set of prizes for those fishing bass and those fishing bluefish. There are categories for adults, youth up to age 16 and children under 7. All Massachusetts waters are eligible and fish must be weighed at the official weigh station headquarters at the State Boat Ramp on Water Street.
Registration closes at midnight Thursday, July 11. Those who are interested can enter online at http://plymouth400inc.org/events/bass-blue-2015-fishing-tournament-and-s… or in person at Pioppi’s Package Store, 183 Court St. in Plymouth.
