Today we kicked off our new season for the Treasure Coast Casters Senior Division for the 2013-2014 season. We would like to welcome Jake Castlow to our group!
We meet at Capt. Joe's Bait & Tackle at 6:30am. As soon as everyone one arrived they were given their fish list which included bluefish, flounder, mangrove snapper, redfish, sheepshead, Spanish mackerel, tripletail and trout. Everyone returned to the bait store for weigh in with stories of the fish they caught, fish that were too sort and fish that were not on the list. This was supposed to be a garbage can tournament and at the meeting yesterday decided to keep our regular fish list.
Michael Williams was fishing with Capt. Charlie Conner and was the first one back. Michael had a very nice 2lb. 4oz. bluefish. Andrew Evans was the next one to weigh a fish and he had a mangrove snapper. Savannah Ward was the last one to weigh a fish - she had a 5lb. 3oz. redfish, a 3lb. 11oz. trout, another trout, sheepshead and a mangrove snapper.
