A great fish story

team_00The Bolivar Peninsula Lions Club held their annual Stingaree Saltwater Slam Fishing Tournament benefiting the youth of Bolivar through scholarships. This year’s tournament turned out nineteen teams competing for cash prizes and bragging rights for the Big Fish. There are many fish stories floating around, but “the big one that got away” does not count this time. The anglers bobbed through the bay for the perfect catch and weighed-in at 1:30pm at Down Under among fellow fishermen and spectators. First place was awarded to Team 3: Captain Rick Cherry, anglers Mike May, Joe Rizzo, and Drew Maddingly. They received $2000 and each member was given a Sarge Custom Made Rod. Second place went to Team 11: Captain Bruce Edwards, anglers Ron Mondey, Donnie Radley, and Rick Squires. Third place was Team 15: Captain Gary Fruge, anglers Enrique Silva, Jerami Waddell, and Johnny Merrkle.

Many Congratulations to Mike May for his Big Trout catch at 6 lbs, 1 oz. And special Thanks to Presenting Sponsor TEXAS MARINE, Emcee Larry Flanagan and music from DJ Signature EvenTX.
