I don’t usually enter too many big fishing tournaments, especially tournaments with thousands of other anglers chasing for that 1st place spot. My brother talked me into doing this one with him…and I’m kinda glad he did. I can sit here and write about it, but nothing can explain it better than this article in Florida Today by Matt Badolado: http://www.floridatoday.com/article/20110508/SPORTS05/105080327/Team-Fifty-Fifty-doggone-lucky-96-Rock
Here are a few photos from the day:

For having the biggest fish overall, I had a chance to play a “Price is Right” type game of choosing envelopes with prizes written down in a card inside. I had a chance to win a choice of $50,000 or a Brand New Truck, $965, $10,000 or a rod and reel combo by filling up 5 empty slots in each category. It was a close race between the $50,000/truck and the rod and reel combo….of course I win the combo, but it was loads of fun and we walked away with some cash.

Thanks to all the sponsors who were involved and 96ROCK FM for putting on a great tournament!
