2022 March Merkin

March 7th-10th, 2022

Many thanks go out to all the anglers and guides who came out to fish the 2020 March Merkin. We had 24 boats participate and 6 permit released during the three day event. High winds made the days super challenging – Congrats to all the winners! Grand Champions Ivar Bolander and Capt. Steve Friedman @ivarpermit1 @captstevefriedman with two fish both 28.5” to the fork, First Runner Up – Robert Dougherty and Capt. Nick LaBadie with two fish caught today @captnicklabadie, Runner up and Largest Fish – Sam Kaufman and Capt. Aaron Snell. Their fish measured 29” to the fork.
