RTB 5 winner, Kalley LeRoy beat the crowd of 732, catching her 26.14 pound bull Redfish on a YOLO Fisher SUP!
Eric Waller of the Heroes on the Water program was the top out of state winner.
Mark Page, winner of the 2011 Ride The Bull, was the First Redfish weighed in at 7:40am weighing 18.80 pounds.
Two ladies made the Top Ten: our winner, Kalley LeRoy, and DD Breaux of Baton Rouge, LA. DD is the Ladies Gymnastics Coach as LSU.
The Top Junior was Harry Ogeron with a Redfish that weighed 19.90 pounds, in 11th Place.
The Team winners were "Fin Addicts", led by Rob Bergeron. There was a tie for this division as no team weighed in more than one fish each. The tie was broken by the first fish weighed in by a registered team. Rob Bergeron weighed in his team's winning fish at 7:50am.
Only Participant to weigh in 2 Bull Reds was Kirk Daigle. - You might want to recruit him for your team next year, as he had no team affiliation this year!
This is a correction. At the awards we recognized only two teams that weighed in 3 fish. There were actually three. Steve Barlow weighed in the first bull red for Team Mudflap at 8:25am. This fish should have been recorded and noted as the tie breaker for the three way tie between Team Fighting Tigers (8:40am), Swamps(8:30am) and Mudflap(8:25am). We appologize for the mistake and thank the folks for bringing it to our attention so it could be corrected. Way to go Team Mudflap!
