    I first just want to take the time to thank all our anglers and sponsors for making this tourn. possible we had35 boats with 75 participants in the tourn. Without their support none of this would have been possible. Because of their generosity we were able to raise $3500.00 for donation to St Jude Children’s Hospital.

    The event was an overall success and with some constructive criticism we are going to make sure this event is bigger and better next year. Congratulations to all the winners and a special thanks to Jorge Martinez for the amazing original artwork provided as awards for the winners.

    Also, a special thanks to Capt Rob Fordyce and Flip Pallot for donating their time and participation for this tourn. and cause. They made the event unique and added a level of fun competition to the tournament.
