After having to reschedule the tournament last weekend everyone was very happy that the weather was so good for today's inshore tournament. We had a few snafu's this morning but nothing we couldn't handle. We left the docks at Capt. Joe's Bait & Tackle at 7:15am due to the time change and the TCC's fished until 12:30pm. We would like to welcome new TCC Senior Ian Banard to our group!
Sheepshead was defiantly the fish of the day followed by mangrove snapper and spanish mackerel. There we a couple of snook caught and released that were in the slot. Maxwell Higgins caught a blue runner that was over 2 pounds. There were also a lot of short sheepshed, snapper, trout, black drum and redfish.
