Rounding out the top five was the tandem of Ryan Dail and Jeffrey Cale with their catch of 9.65lbs.  Each angler received a prize package of ZMan Fishing Lures Elaztech products and hooks from Penetration Hooks.

Another great day of fish care by our teams.  Fifty-eight of the fifty-nine fish that crossed the scales were alive and well and each were returned to the water to be caught again another day.  Thank-you boat captains for your help with this matter. 

 

Door prizes were awarded from Z-Man Fishing Products, Solar Bat Sunglasses, Penetration Hooks, and Ranger Boats.
