What a great morning we had to kick off our new season of inshore fishing for the Treasure coast casters - Senior Division. We did several things today that we had not before -this was the first C.P.R. (catch, picture, release) tournament and also the first time we have fished during the summer months. It was a great success!
We had 7 species on the fish list and we did a point system by the length of the fish. Everyone was given a card and a measuring stick that had to be in the photo. Everyone caught fish but it seemed that if we had shark, lady fish, bluefish, catfish or jackson the list there would have been a lot more pictures to see.
Brennen Tessier released3 fish - a snapper, trout and a redfish. Taylor Meding released a very nice 26inch redfish. Trace Meding released 4 fish - a trout, 2 snapper and asheepshead. Andrew Evans released a nice snapper and Colton Hester released a trout.
