2nd Annual Saltwater Angler Classic Fishing Tournament

THANKS for the 2018 Saltwater Angler Classic! Congratulations to all that participated, and to the winners. Everything went pretty smooth, and 4 Polygraphs were given, and were passed successfully. I know we made a young man very happy for our Entry Raffle. Roy’s Bait & Tackle provided a new Jackson kayak for our Entry Raffle, and the you man you will see in the September 14th edition was nothing but smiles. Top 3 Results were posted on Facebook. Full results and photos will follow in the September 14th edition. A huge THANKS to all of our Sponsors, and again to all those that took the time to fish our tournament. It’s all for FUN.
