Saltwater Boys 1st Annual Charity Red Fish Tournament by Chad Lyen

Posted Wednesday, June 19, 2013 by cnull in Kayak Fishing Blog

I had the pleasure of fishing in the Saltwater Boys 1st Annual Charity Red Fish Tournament Sat, May 4th. I partnered with Tom Stubblefield, Texas Kayak Fisherman, and David Roberts, member of Lamar University fishing team.  We were the only kayak team out of 34 teams. We took our two smallest fish of the day to weigh in.  One was 27 15/16" and 8.55 lbs  The other fish ended up relaxing a little to much in the live and ended up being 1/16" too long, although it weighed close to 9lbs.  The tournament was won with 16.44 lbs. We caught all our fish back in the marsh on a variety of baits from crankbaits to gulp under a cork and some soft paddle tails on jig heads. The fish we were catching were following the tide in and feeding small shad and shrimp.
