Today we held our second inshore fishing tournament of the new season for the Treasure Coast Casters. We would like to welcome Kevin Squires to Treasure Coast Casters! We had a great turn out and also had a good number of fish caught. We had about an even number of trout, snapper, spanish mackerel and one sheepshead. We had reports of croaker, plenty of ladyfish and jacks -- which were not on the list. With our new points system in place we did have bluefish, flounder, mangrove snapper, pompano, redfish, sheepshead, spanish mackerel and trout on the list.
In the middle school division - Andrew Evans had 2 snapper and a spanish mackerel. Trace Meding had 1 trout and a snapper and Savannah Ward had a trout and 2 spanish mackerel. In the high school division Colton Hester had 2 spanish mackerel - DJ Markowski had 2 snapper, 2 spanish mackerel and a trout and Kevin Squires had a trout.

Last but not least Michael Williams had a nice snapper.
