The 3rd annual Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament was held in Georgetown this weekend. My friend Antonio “Cheech” Castellvi came to town to fish with me and Capt Douglas Miller. He caught his first SC tarpon that was subsequently fitted with a satellite tag by members of the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust. We’re looking forward to seeing some data soon. Congrats to Capt Steve Roff and his anglers for the win and to Jordan, Newman, Stump, and Heath for also catching a fish. 4 total fish were caught in two days of fishing. Thanks to the tournament organizers/supporters for all of their hard work. Please check out www.lowcountrytarpon.com and consider participating next year.
The organizers try to plan the tournament around the mullet run each year. I’d say they hit the nail on the head.

We even had time to get Cheech on a few redfish before he headed home…
