New Monster Shark Tournament Venue Named
Martha's Vineyard - Organizers of the Monster Shark Tournament have confirmed that the popular event which for two decades has attracted hundreds of sport fisherman to Oak Bluffs in August will be moved to Newport, Rhode Island this summer.
Over the past few years the Tournament drew sharp criticism from animal rights groups and Oak Bluffs officials questioned whether or not the town should continue to host the controversial event.
Steve James, president of the Boston Big Game Fishing Club which sponsored the Tournament, who died this past January while hunting, had been considering and scouting for a new venue prior to his death.
