Fish Make Reedville Great Tiny Town

They don't make any guarantees because they know there are some people who don't get along with anybody anywhere.
Another guy drives by and asks the farmer what the next town is like, and the farmer asked him how he liked the last town. They guy said he loved it, hated to leave. The farmer tells him he'll probably like the next town, too.''
Tournament officials were initially happy to see big blues weighed in. Big fish, it was thought, mean a successful tournament.
They don't guarantee you will like Reedville, but they think you will.
It was suggested that perhaps the tournament should be changed to feature trout or rockfish. The offshore wrecks in this area are loaded with trout and the rockfish, once on the endangered list, has made a strong comeback.
Trout and rockfish are considered nice fish,'' one official said. People would accuse us of wiping out the trout and rockfish population. Nobody cares if we catch 300 bluefish.''
But tournament officials say, privately, they don't want to deal with the expected protest from environmentalists.
Likewise, they don't guarantee that you'll catch a big bluefish. They think you'll catch a lot of bluefish in the 3 pound range, but they won't guarantee the big choppers weighing more than 10 pounds will be out there.

It's like the story about the guy who drives out of one town and asks a farmer what the next town is like,'' said Bill Bonds, director of the eighth annual Reedville Bluefish Tournament.

The people eat family style here, too. There are no fast food restaurants in this county not even an electric stoplight for that matter.

But a number of fishermen who owned slower or smaller boats and couldn't make the run to the ocean protested so strongly that the ocean was declared off limits.
Tournament officials should be concerned about the three year trend of small blues. The tournament pumps an estimated $600,000 into the community and the sponsoring Smith Point Sea Rescue unit counts on the tournament to fund its $30,000 yearly budget.

In other words, if you can get along with people you'll enjoy Reedville. And you probably will.
And, for the third straight year, the big ones aren't out there in any significant numbers. Last year, a dozen or so skippers with fast boats and a lot of courage made the seven hour roundtrip charge out to the Chesapeake Light Tower Nike Lebron Soldier 1
