2012 Kingfish Tournament Winners

2012 MBARA Kingfish Tournament 25 Aug 2012 Mexico Beach Marina Photos by Carol Cox 850-899-1728 MBARA uses money from their annual Kingfish Tournament to raise money for artificial reefs. Since 1997, MBARA has built over 160 artificial reefs worth over one million dollars. The annual tournament is their main source of funding, and those monies are often used as seed money for grants from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and private foundations. We had 144 boats with 577 anglers. 29 Kings, 9 Spanish, and 1 Wahoo were weighed. Photos of the winners and weigh-sheets are posted on our home page at www.mbara.org for public viewing.
