Friday was pretty windy and I don’t think too many boats ventured out into the ocean.
The Joe Morris Memorial Canal Flounder Tournament saw 425 anglers entered and when the final tally was completed at 4:00 PM Price Lindsay was the winner with a 5.98-pound beauty that he caught on a shiner fished on a Rick’s Rig. In second place was Matt Mitchel with his 4.07-pound flounder and coming in third was Jesse Dickenson and his 3.51-pound flounder. My nephew Justin Twilley took the fourth-place fish with Gulp! to put a 3.35-pound flounder in the box. In fifth place was Dennis Weidner with a 3.33 and in the sixth spot was Colby Steele and his 3.28-pound flounder. Everyone who entered the tournament can feel proud that they helped raise a minimum of $8,500 for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. That amount will grow once the money from tee shirt sales and other fund raisers is counted.
