Daily fishing report

Published May 30, 2004

Only 11 boats were entered in the Billy's Stonecrab Big Spanish Mack Attack Fishing Tournament out of Tierra Verde Saturday.

Even though entries were small, the four top fish were awarded with cash prizes.

Metheney's Jeanie, skippered by David Metheney and crewed by Jean Gifford and Ernest Wooten, took first place and won $500. Metheney piloted Gifford to the winning 5.3-pound Spanish mackerel.

Gifford's mackerel ate a live greenback about 5 miles off St. Pete Beach. The trio was anchored and chumming when the mackerel hit around 10:30 a.m.

The father-daughter team of Robert and Kaley Schutte on board Reel Quick was second and won $300. The pair's first bite was a charm and it turned out to be Kaley who landed the winning 4.1-pound Spanish.

Kaley's mackerel hit a live scaled sardine while the team was anchored and chumming in the southwest channel.

Summer Street with Tom Mahan at the helm won $200 for finishing third. Mahan guided his wife, Cindy, to a 3.8-pound Spanish that was caught on a live Spanish sardine.

According to mate Pete Panduzzi, the winner was the team's last fish of the day. It was caught at 1:15 p.m. while working the Egmont shipping channel.

Billy Moore and Carla Wright on board Carla finished fourth. The duo managed a Spanish mackerel weighing in at 3.4 pounds.

They won back their entry fee, $100.
