Huge Red Drum Takes Top Prize

We had an awesome awards party Sunday evening, where we gave away our top prizes and celebrated the unbelievable turn out and fundraising done through this year’s Red Drum Rodeo! The winner of the 2017 Red Drum Rodeo was Mike Timm, who caught a Red Drum measuring 116 cm (45.67 inches).

Second Place went to Kevin Leeber, who also had the Red Drum with the most spots (Eight Spots), so he walked away with $1,000 and a brand new fly rod.

In the Junior Angler Division, Jack Limroth backed up his claims and came away with a 109 cm Red Drum, while Sara Bimson was right on his heels at 108 cm.

In all, the tournament was a huge success, and we can not say thank you enough to everyone that participated. We had over 100 people at the awards party, 108 fishermen, 16 boats, and 23 unbelievable sponsors. We will continue posting more photos of this year’s even in the coming days, and look forward to seeing you all next year at the 2018 Red Drum Rodeo!
