Weir / Schoen Take Morgan City Madness!

Congratulations to Florida’s Bobby Weir and Matt Schoen on winning the Morgan City Madness event and taking home the $10,000.00 check for first place.

Sitting in 4th place after day 1’s 27.47 pound 4 fish limit Weir and Schoen were well within striking distance just .95 of a pound behind the leaders Fleming and Pearson’s 28.42 pounds.

Day 2 this Florida based team brought in the only 30+ pound limit of the entire event. 30.29 pounds was good enough to place them on top with their 2 day limit of 57.76 pounds.

The total take was a nice check for $10,000.00 for first place and a supplemental $1400.00 for having the Big Bag of the event. To verify and ensure the results a polygraph test was given to which Bobby stated “wow, now that’s a thorough polygraph test”… 🙂

Second place was landed by the team of Kevin Harvey and Lance Trahan weighing in a total of 54.49 pounds and taking home the 2nd place check for $5,000.00. Padding their payday team Waypoint Marine netted the Angler Advantage top spot for another $2,300.00. The team talked about the ones that got away but gave all props to the winning team by stating, “we would love to have a fish or two back today but Bobby and Matt deserved this one”, stated Harvey. Following in 3rd place was the Breakline Optics team of Mike McClure and Mike Sartin with 51.87 pounds. The team used a smaller boat to access super shallow waters and took home $4,500.00 including the 3rd place tournament check and the 2nd place Angler Advantage bonus check.

The top 5 finished out with the team of Marsonek and Ownby in 4th while Joseph Parfait and Randy Dominique finished in 5th. The total take was $27,800.00 paid out with 35 teams competing and weighing in 177 fish over the competition topping the scales at a whopping 1052.26 pounds with just 2 dead fish total! Great job anglers and staff a like for catching and caring for the resource and returning them to the waters to be caught again. A special thank you to the Mayor and the great staff at Cajun Coast Visitors and Convention Bureau… Next up… Kemah’s 3rd annual Battle on the Boardwalk August 2-3-4.
