What a beautiful morning we had for our from shore tournament. It was cold but warmed up quickly and the wind didn't blow us away! Before we get to the results we would like to welcome several new Juniors - Dashawn Brown, Dylan & Tanner Grimpe and Jordan Lettenbauer.
We had a total of 16 kids fishing and only 7 fish came to the weigh table. Thomas Parramore caught the first fish - a lizzardfish, Dean Buxton was next with a needlefish and he came back with one more, Bradyen Adams had a jack, Michael Rochedieu had a snapper and Kaitlyn Ward had a jack and a 4lb. 12oz. sheepshead. Capt. Joe Ward said that the cold water temps contributed to the slow bite. The tide just started moving when it was time to leave.
1st place - Kaitlyn Ward - Fairlawn Elem. - Ft. Pierce
2nd place - Dean Buxton - Fairlawn Elem. - Ft. Pierce
3rd place - Thomas Parramore - United Methodist - Ft. Pierce
Biggest fish trophy went to Kaitlyn Ward for her sheepshead.
We raffled off two items - a rod & reel combo that was donated Jim Thomas and a $20 gift card to the Fishing Center donated by Pat & Gwen. New Junior Dashawn Brown won the rod & reel combo and veteran Junior - Mackenzie Tessier won the gift card.
Our next from shore tournament will be held on Sunday - March 24th.
