Today we held our last monthly inshore tournament for the Senior Division of the Treasure Coast Casters for this school year. Our next tournament will be the Fish Off for the Treasure Coast Caster of the Year and it will be held in May.
The boats left the docks at Capt. Joe's Bait & Tackle at 6:45am armed with their fish list and plenty of live bait. The fish we had on the list this month was black drum, flounder, mangrove snapper, pompano, redfish, sheesphead, snook, spaniah mackerel and trout. Snook was the big point fish and was worth 50 points. There were a lot of fish caught and some that were not on the list. One notable catch was a bonefish caught by Ty Walker. He is the 1st TCC to ever catch a bonefish during a tournament. Ty also caught two trout with one weighing 2lb. 13oz. Michael Rochedieu also had two trout with one weighing 2lb. 9oz. and a nice size pompano. Brayden Adams had a trout and a spanish mackerel. Andrew Evans had a trout and a sheepshead. And, Colt Krischke had a spanish mackerel and a sheepshead.
