Randall Kelly of Rockport, TX was the second CERTIFIED BLUE-TAG WINNER and was awarded a 2022 Mowdy 22′ V boat with a Mercury 150L Pro XS Optimax and Coastline Trailer.
Here’s his story:
With tides changing, Randall decided to either go south towards Ingleside or north towards Rockport. Randall and his wife Sandra headed north up the ICW to Turtle Bayou flats. With the day’s heat upon them, Randall knew that these fish would be in deep guts off the flat. Each time they would hook up, Sandra would yell in hopeful anticipation, “TAG! TAG! TAG!” The power of positive thinking is REEL! Randall grabbed his rod and reel and cast the mullet into the gut, and BAM, he was hooked up! Once the redfish was within reach of the net, they noticed algae on its back. Upon further investigation, it was a BLUE tag! With the Blue tag in hand, Randall headed off to one of our official weigh stations, Terry’s Seaworthy Marine Supply, to turn in the tag.
