RFK Tournament and Giant Kingfish

Fished the Reeling For Kids tournament out of Steinhatchee last week 6-3,4. Covered a lot of ground and dealt with some wicked current and double currents. Broke off some big boy gags, 30's-40's, that's just the name of the game in strong current fishing deep wrecks and ledges. Ended up with a respectable box of fish, our biggest gag was 20, biggest red 19, couldn't find a big snapper @ 12lbs, had a scamp that was 10 and mangos up to 8 also some big bees up to 4lbs. These fish were all caught between 80'-260'.

The real star of the show and the fish that sealed the deal for us was a giant 60 pound kingfish. After being on ice for 24+ hours he weighed in at 58.95 pounds. We also had a 40 pound King that would've been good for 2nd if that was allowed.

We finished up as follows:
1st Place Masters Offshore @ 90.65
1st Place Calcutta
1st Place Kingfish @ 58.95
1st Place Open Fish @ 24.35 (Baracuda)
3rd Place Grouper @ 19.95 (Gag)
