When Capt. Joe & I got to the bait shop we weren't quite sure how the weather was going to hold up for the morning. As usual the weather man said there was no wind and when we got there it was about 10mph out of the south east and the sky was full of clouds. One dad had said it was raining in Port St. Lucie when they left the house. Well, everything worked out and after about 8:30am we had a beautiful day for fishing. We had 15 TCC's sign up for the tournament and on the fish list we had black drum, bluefish, flounder, mangrove snapper, redfish, sheepshead, snook and trout. All the TCC's reported catching fish - some were too small or not on the fish but everyone did catch fish. One TCC even reported catching a pretty good size stingray. So far this year no one has weighed in a snook which has a 50 point value! Mackenzie Tessier caught the only flounder and DJ Markowski caught the only Spanish mackerel. Savannah Ward caught the only black drum and she also had 2 sheepshead. Andrew Evans caught 2 snapper and Maxwell Higgins had a sheepshead and a snapper.

Ed Zyak for being our guest speaker at the meeting on Saturday. He spoke to us on behalf of D.O.A. Lures and shared a lot of very good info. Many of the TCC's tried some of the techniques he shared with us. Thank you to all the parents, aunts and Capt. Charlie Conner for always volunteering their time to take the TCC's fishing. We hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year. See you in February!!
