Akin / Lloyd Win in Kemah, TX.

They did it, a wire to wire victory for the mega team of Jimmy Lloyd and Kevin Akin. However, their nearly 2 pound lead fell to a final winning margin of just under 1 pound. 0.96 or 96/100 of a pound.

Jimmy Lloyd of Lumberton Texas has been known as one of the top anglers in the country going way back to the Redfish Cup. Kevin Akin would be at the top of any similar list of professionals and is based out of south Texas.

This mega team landed a total of 73.49 pounds of live redfish over the 3 day competition and took home the grand prize Tidewater Boats-Yamaha Outboards-McClain trailers rig with a retail value approaching $60,000.00.

The team netted another $7,700.00 in cash bonuses for finishing first in the tournament’s Big Bag and Angler Advantage TWT (tournament within a tournament) programs for a total take topping $67,000.00 for their weekend of fishing.

From Mayor Gale’s opening welcome to the champions taking a victory lap aboard their new Tidewater-Yamaha-McClain rig on Sunday afternoon, this event had it all. Next up is the Flip Flop Festival in Port Lavaca, TX.
