Fort Fisher Results

The third tournament of the 2012 season was held at Fort Fisher on Saturday, June 30th. Depending on which forecast you saw, it was going to range from 90 to 104 degrees.  It felt awfully hot, but probably only reached the lower 90s. Unfortunately, the fishing wasn’t quite as hot, but one angler managed to get a slam and there were some nice fish caught. The biggest drum was only 10.75″ and was caught by Mike English. Most people felt the hot weather drove the drum a bit further south and out of the basin area.

4th thru 7th place finishers were all awarded $25 gift cards to Hook1. Those gift cards went to Mark Patterson (7th), Nathan Raycroft (6th), Mike English (5th), and Matt Sadler (4th). Nice job, guys! Coming in third place, with a two fish total of 28.75″ was Matt Frazier. Second place honors went to Tanner Pruitt, who was the youngest competitor in the event and did quite well. Congrats Tanner! The big winner of the day and the only angler to manage a slam was Brian English with a 3 fish total of 38.25″. The big fish pot was split by Tanner Pruitt and Nathan Raycroft, who each boated a 18.75″ flounder. Congrats Tanner and Nathan! Individual fish lengths for each angler can be seen in the table below.

Thank you to everyone that came out today and helped us support Heroes on the Water.
