The Junior Angler award of $50 went to Cade Ferguson with a Red weighing 3.89lbs & the $150 Lady Angler honor went to Heather Metchick with 6.98lbs.

Round #3 of the 5 tournament series is March 14 at The Fishing Store & Outrigger’s Tiki Bar & Grille. It’s not too late for new anglers to join in; registration will be the morning of the tournament. The Bossman Series has proven to be a great family tournament for all levels of anglers & the weigh-in from 2-3pm has been found to be a great spectator sport as well. For more information see
