Justin Bishop caught this 26″ Redfish at Dagger Island in Aransas Bay
Kayleigh started the CCA Star Tournament in the Star Kids Division. She quickly caught a 6lb 7oz Gaftop and became the leader. Kayleigh in the meanwhile turned 11 years of age, so she was hopefull that no one else would weigh in a larger fish, that would last all summer up until two weeks before the tournament ended. Kayleigh quickly returned to the early mornings and late evening fishing trips (in a new category STAR TEENS) and with 4 hours left until the end of the tournament Kayleigh weighed in her Winning 7lb6oz Gaftop! She won a $20,000 scholarship donated by Texas Fish & Game and awarded at the annual Winner’s Banquet on October 3.
