07/29/2020 2:43pm

2020 Bold City Showcase postponedNews StaffWed, 07/29/2020 - 03:43 pm The 2020 Bold City Showcase, originally scheduled for Aug. 22, is being postponed due to the uncertainties of the high school football season and the COVID-19 pandemic. The announcement was jointly made by Airstream Ventures and News4Jax Channel 4 July 23.The Bold City Showcase has become Northeast Floridas premier high school football event, featuring six teams in three games in one day televised on Channel 4. The schedule for what would have been year three of the event was set with Creekside vs. Ribault, Bolles vs. West Nassau, and Oakleaf vs. Orange Park.These games may still be played at each home teams school, pending decisions by the school board and athletic directors of each county.With the decisions of local school districts to postpone the start of school and the clear recommendations by the medical community to re-think the start of high school fall sports, including football, we needed to put the health and safety of the student-athletes, coaches, fans and officials first, said Alan Verlander, CEO of Airstream Ventures and High School 9:12.The safety of the participants and their families is, and will remain, our top priority, said Bob Ellis, vice president and general manager of Channel 4. After consulting with the medical experts and our partners at Airstream, we made the decision which, while disappointing, is absolutely the right thing to do at this time.Depending on what ultimately happens with the high school football schedules, Airstream Ventures, High School 9:12 and Channel 4 will look to reschedule the event for later this season. If that isnt possible, fans can expect the event to be back next football season.This has quickly become one of the premier local sports events in Jacksonville, said Ellis. We are absolutely committed to it moving forward and are eager to get it rescheduled. With the changes we made at our station to prioritize high school sports the last two plus years, fans of high school football can expect it to be here for years to come. We couldnt have imagined what this would become when we dreamed it up three years ago.Fans who have already purchased tickets to the event will receive a full refund by logging onto their account via JaxHighSchool912.com.Airstream Ventures and Channel 4 reviewed the state of Floridas own guidance when considering the postponement or cancellation of a mass gathering.

Weather may not permit much fishing

Weather may not permit much fishingNews StaffWed, 07/29/2020 - 03:35 pm Team Vamoose with another win. The team includes Zach Crabtree, Ross Crabtree, Chase Crabtree, Chip Crabtree and Thomas Boney. photo submitted Eddie Cabler took the Redfish Division and brought home $5k for his lucky fish.photo submitted By Chris Shultz, Fishing Columnist Chrisfishjax.org Looking ahead towards the weekend, it may be a better one for surfing than fishing. Inshore should be a safe bet, but unless the forecast changes some the next day or so it appears we will have our first brush with tropical activity of the season. While not forecasted to become a major hurricane, the incoming system looks to be bringing plenty of swell and more wind and rain with it.After the last week of constant East flow keeping the ocean choppy this week it flipped and weve had steady West winds that have cleaned up the beach but not done much to help offshore. The Kingfish bite has been a little slow in general this week. That is unless youre fishing with the Crabtrees who went back to back taking out the Ancient City Tournament with a 46.78 pound Kingfish just a week after their big fish win the in Greater Jax. Huge congratulations to Zach and Crew. Jacksonville local Eddie Cabler took out the Redfish Tournament with a 14.9 pound aggregate.The best bet for the weekend might be to catch up on some mid-season maintenance if youre an offshore angler. The beach might be fishable with the west winds, its been okay the last couple days. Once you get out to the party grounds about 8-10 miles offshore the West wind swell slop makes for a rolling troll and slow headway for the smaller center consoles and bay boats. If you do have a bigger boat and dont mind the swell the fishing hasnt been wide open but there have been some Pelagics showing up close to the beach after all the East wind last week. The Mayport party grounds have seen a few Sailfish, some Mahi, and a nice Wahoo caught over the first half of the week.Inshore, the fishing is always a little tougher in mid summer with the heat but adapt your strategies and youll find some fish to tug on. In general this time of year low light and deeper water are keys to success. The creeks are just too hot for the fish to be really active especially around midday. Flounder fishing is a solid bet and if youre headed towards Palm Valley or Vilano the Mangrove snapper have been chewing on the docks. Prepare to go through a ton of bait if you get into them.Good luck out there this weekend and if you get a good one send us some pictures of your catch to be posted in next weeks report.For any questions or to book a charter trip, or to send in a report and pictures of your catch to be featured in a future report, send an email to Chrisfishjax.org.
