[dropcap]T[/dropcap]reasure Coast Caster’s latest Senior Division Inshore Tournament held in late September was blessed with beautiful weather, finger mullet running by the thousands, but only one fish large enough to weigh in!

Tournament organizers Cammie and Capt. Joe Ward shared “It’s been over a year-and-a-half since we had had a tournament with only one fish to weigh in! All our anglers caught fish, short snook and short snapper, along with the usual jacks, catfish, puffers and grunts, but only one on the list large enough to count.” Cammie added, “You know if Capt. Charlie Conner said it was tough fishing then it really was tough fishing!”

Angler Colt Krischke was the lucky angler of the day and just happened to be in the right place at the right time. His boat volunteer, Chad Painter, led him to a 33.5-inch snook (released) which was Colt’s biggest snook to date. However, Colt’s winning fish of the tournament was a 27-inch redfish that weighed in at 5.13-pounds. Both fish were caught on finger mullet.


  • 1st Place—Middle School – Colt Krischke – Lincoln Park Academy, Fort Pierce – 35 points.

No other fish were weighed in either division.

Colt also was awarded the Biggest Fish of the tournament for his redfish. Along with his trophies, Colt received a $25 West Marine gift card and a goodie bag filled with fishing items, as well as a MirrOLure hat.
