We had 14 boats with 55 anglers registered to compete in the first annual FTBA Roads & Reels Fishing Tournament in Riviera Beach, October 22nd! They brought with them an additional 40 guests, which added up to be quite a good time. We appreciate all of those who participated and supported our efforts. We look forward to hosting the Roads & Reels Tournament again every year moving forward!
The kingfish and dolphin were biting, but the tides weren’t in our favor to snag any wahoo. Out of the 14 boats, only 6 teams were able to bring in a catch. Though reports of “the one that got away” were plentiful.
Our First Place Kingfish winner was Bob Flowers with CWR Contracting, Inc. He took home the kingfish trophy and $500 prize with a 10.1 pound catch.
Our First Place Dolphin winner was Cole Kruggel with Johnson Bros. Corporation. He brought in the heaviest dolphin of the day at 11.5 pounds, securing him that trophy as well as $500.
A big thank you to Kelly Tractor Company for title sponsoring the tournament, as well as a thank you to Adam Kirkland with Knox Companies for manning the weigh station. We couldn’t have hosted the tournament without the help and support of both companies. Overall, we had fantastic food, jammed to the steel drum band, and shared some big fish stories. All of which will have to last us until we get back together next year for Roads & Reels round 2!
