Today we held our first tournament of the 2017-2018 season for the Senior Division of the Treasure Coast Casters. We would like to welcome Owen Nail to the Senior group!
They left Capt. Joe's Bait & Tackle at 6:45am. As the boats were leaving Capt. Joe asked me if I had put lane snapper on the list. Well, I didn't and the TCC's caught a lot of them that were keepers. We had quite a few different species caught but most were not on the fish list. We had a shark, LOTS of lane snapper, flounder, trout, river spots, sheepshead, lots of jacks and mangrove snapper. We had cut the fishing time by one hour because if we got rain it was supposed to start raining around 11am. Well, it didn't rain and everyone reported that the bite has just turned on around 10:30am. Riley Orr had a 1lb. 8oz. sheepshead, Michael Rochedieu had a 1lb. 2oz. sheepshead and a snapper, Ciara Franqui had an 11oz. snapper, Owen Nail had 2 snapper with one weighing 1lb. 15oz. and Andrew Evans had a snapper that weighed 13oz.
