The MFCC Casting Competition: A Great Success Despite Gale Force Winds!


The wind was blowing from the Northeast at 30 knots , and the air temperature was in the 40's, but that didn't stop a group of My Fishing Cape Codders from competing in our 3rd annual long-distance casting competition.

The competition was held at Sandy Neck Beach in Barnstable. Hosting an event on the beach in gale conditions proved to be a challenge, but we definitely made the most of it! It was a good excuse to get together, have some fun, and win some awesome prizes.

Our winners all went home with gift certificates to We also gave away some terrific prizes, including an assortment of lures and a Portarod Fishing Rod Holder.

At this event we had anglers in their twenties, all the way up to anglers who are over 80 years old. No matter what generation you belong to, we can all learn a lot from one another, and I enjoyed everyone's company.

Jeff Coates of Sandwich was the winner of the "Big Bomber" 9ft and over division, with several casts that were probably over 150 yards. Jeff Boswell from Plymouth was the winner of the "Daily Driver" 9ft and under division with several casts that probably sailed over 100 yards.

Thank you to longtime My Fishing Cape Cod member Mike Marcus for helping to organize this event and make a success. I'd also like to thank everyone who attended for braving the weather!

I'm already looking forward to the next MFCC competition.

Tight lines! 🎣

I'm fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I've been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!
