154 boats with approximately 600 anglers registered for the 2015 tournament. 27 Kings, 13 Spanish, and 2 Wahoo were weighed at the Mexico Beach Marina. Photos of the winners and weigh-sheets are posted on our Facebook for public viewing.
Tournament Director, Ron Childs said, the whole tournament was perfect! It ran smooth and easy. He also said, we are appreciative of 119 sponsors that supported the tournament with funding, door prizes, and raffle items.
MBARA President, Bob Cox said, this was another great success. The funds raised by this event will help us raise additional grant funding by five-fold translating to an additional $5 for every $1 raised in the tournament. We are also grateful for our volunteers that work all through the years to make this a memorable and fun event.
