Today we held our kick off tournament for the Treasure Coast Casters Junior Division. We had beautiful weather but the fishing was a little slow. We had a total of 21 Juniors that fished!
Before we get to the results we would like to welcome the new Juniors - Brayden Adams, Jordyn Beeten, Caden Hutchinson, Daylan Hutchinson, Thomas Parramore, Mackenzy Peavy, Chase Spells, Tiffany Spells and Marcus Schubart!!
I guess you can say that catfish was the fish of the day. Mackenzie Tessier caught the first one and then came back to the scales with 3 more. Brayden Adams caught the only flounder. Thomas Parramore was next with a lane snapper and Kaitlyn Ward was right behind him with a catfish. Dean Buxton was next with a lane snapper and Jessica Eastland also had a catfish. Chase Spells had a catfish as did Marcus Schubart and he had 3. All fish were released!
1st place - Mackenzie Tessier - 4th grade - Imagine School - Vero Beach
2nd place - Marcus Schubart - 1st grade - Lakewood Park Elem. - Ft. Pierce
3rd place - Brayden Adams - 1st grade - F.K. Sweet - Ft. Pierce
Biggest fish of the tournament trophy went to Mackenzie Tessier for her 1lb. 3oz. catfish. Mackenzie also received a rod & reel combo that was donated by The Fishing Center. Every Junior that fished received a goodie bag with items from Culprit/Riptide, Gwen & Pat and Treasure Coast Casters.
We were very lucky to have one of our sponsors stop by - Jack Kingsley of We Elderly Care. It was very nice of him to come and see what we do at the Junior's tournaments.
Our next from shore tournament will be on Sunday - Oct. 14th. If you have someone that would like to fish with us just have them go to the website and sign up at www.treasurecoastcasters.org or call 772-201-5773.
A SPECIAL Thank you to Tammy Ward for weighing all the fish! We couldn't do it without you.
