Richmond, GA (May 16, 2014) - The Sheepshead Madness tournament was a two-month event starting in March and ending in April. The goal was to catch and weigh-in three sheepshead. We had six teams competing for the tournament title, and it was a nip and tuck battle to the end with teams jockeying for position and upgrading their catches on an almost daily basis.
Two awards were given at the Marina celebration on Friday night: first place team and the biggest catch. The winners of Sheepshead Madness 2014 are team “Troublemakers.” Their aggregate weight for three fish was 25 pounds 3 ounces. Great Job!
Coming in second place just 1 pound and 8 ounces behind the winners was team “2 Bills a Bob and a Gunnar:” Bill Coad, Bill Thompson, Bob Zerbe, and Gunnar Sarsten. Their three fish weight was 23 pounds 11 ounces.
The biggest fish award, however, didn’t go to anyone on either of the top two teams. This honor went to a member of team “Lady Luck.” Congratulations to Vicky Young with her monster catch of a sheepshead weighing in at 9 pounds 9 ounces!! Way to go Vicky! Remember, only 11 months till next year’s madness begins! Thanks to everyone who made this tournament a wonderful success.
