Kasey Arnst was the THIRD CERTIFIED WINNER of the 2022 Texas Ford Dealer’s RED-Tagged Redfish Division. Recently, Kasey was awarded a 2022 Ford F-150 “Texas Edition” XLT Super Cab connected to a Haynie 23′ Bigfoot with a Mercury 150HP L Pro XS Optimax and Coastline Trailer.
Here’s his story:
For Kasey Arnst, this was not a typical Monday. Ordinarily, Kasey would be starting his work week, but this Monday marked the first work day after losing his job. Over the weekend, knowing he would not work on Monday, Kasey decided to sign up for the CCA Texas STAR Tournament and head to Galveston to spend time fishing. Once there, he pulled out his cast net, snagged a few mud minnows, and waded into the water. With his rod and reel in hand, he cast his line out and waited for a bite. The line went taut, and he set the hook! Once the redfish was within reach of the net, he noticed what appeared to be algae on its back. Upon further investigation, it was a RED tag! Kasey’s luck had just changed; what had initially seemed to be a misfortune Monday turned into the most fortunate day as he landed the tagged red, making him our third RED tag winner. Kasey clipped the tag, released the redfish, and headed off to one of our official weigh stations, West End Marina, to turn in the tag.
