Clark pocketed $9980 for the win
Mike Mattice and the Redfish Madness Team are making a name for tournament redfishing in the Carolinas. Registration for their April 30 – May 1 event was maxed out at 44 boats due to weigh-in dock space. They expect future events to be even bigger.
The tournament launched from the Saltwater Grill in Swansboro, NC. Boats traveled from Morehead to Wilmington in search of the heaviest possible 18- to 27-inch redfish. In the end, Rennie Clark took home the belt and top prize of $9980 with a total 2-day weight of 13.51 pounds. The $1800 Big Fish went to Richard Gilligan for bringing in a 7.4-pound redfish on Day 1.
