Morehead City, NC –
The Cape Lookout Shootout Tournament Series kicked off their North Division today. The conditions proved to be challenging for competitors. Teams were faced with 6-8 foot seas and winds and only 36 fish were weighed out of 60 teams.
Team Windy Conditions hit the scales early at Big Rock Landing with an impressive 52.73 lb King. Team Captain Henry Tillet said they caught the fish first thing in the morning and slow trolled the rest of the day back to the scales.
Team Windy Conditions won the event and took home $84,215 with Team Anglers Envy taking second with a 49.85 lbs worth $20,500. Rounding out the top 3 is Team Lil John with 43.42 lbs.
Of course, after the event, our team headed over to The Red Fish grill on the waterfront to enjoy some fresh local seafood.
Congrats to all the winners and see you in two weeks (9/26) for Leg 2.
