The weather could have been better for the Old Salts Ladies Tournament on Saturday in St. Pete Beach. But the conditions did not deter more than 100 women from participating.

Carol LaBarbera traveled out to 60 feet on Team Galati and won the grouper division at 16.92 pounds. Angela Fleet on SaltShaker went about 55 miles offshore at the South Spring to catch her first-place (27.32 pounds) amberjack.

Dawn Burwell had trouble during her first attempt. The boat developed engine trouble, and she returned for another ride. The effort paid off as she took first (4.08 pounds) in the Spanish mackerel category.

Rita Hagberg caught the only king mackerel (10.16 pounds) while trying to catch bait. Jennifer Bachnic brought in the biggest trout (3.98 pounds), found off Pinellas Point. Beth Maisano didn't leave the dock for the largest flounder (3.62 pounds), catching it under her boat lift. Nina Manee had won the sheepshead category for the past 10 years but lost to her sister, Pam Kreps, who caught a 5.06-pounder.

Patty Afeld won the Master Angler award for catching a grouper (7.38 pounds), sheepshead (1.66 pounds), flounder (1.16 pounds) and trout (1.44 pounds). Afeld said she had to keep dodging rain, which might have helped find so many species.
