Two years ago, we saw the end of the Viking / Ocean Showdown after 27 years. The Showdown stood for what is best about offshore fishing: good times, camaraderie and friendly competition. The relationship between the Healey and Leek families epitomizes this spirit. Even as the South Jersey Tournaments team was wrapping up last year’s event, people were pressing to make sure that there would be a similar event in its place. For some teams, the Showdown had become the traditional start of their tournament season; for others, it was the only tournament they participated in. 2017.
