Congratulations to Team 2 and Team 3 for winning the species categories. Each team will receive a commemorative cap and gift certificate for their titles.

Team 3 is also the Overall Team Champion for having the longest single fish from each of the three species. The Team Champions will have their names engraved on the Challenge Plaque.

As luck would have it, Nelson Valles ticket was drawn from the bait bucket for the St. Croix Mojo Surf Rod! A fitting tribute indeed.

Mike Lynch submitted the best photo to take the Photo Contest $25 prize.
