Here’s his STAR Story:
Michael Webb was the first certified angler to catch a red tagged redfish on June 5th.
He was fishing with his dad and nephew. First thing in the morning, they went over to the Trinity spillway, and by 8 am, his nephew caught a massive sheepshead for his division. They decided to pack up and went to Linda’s Sylvan Beach B&T to weigh the fish. With the rest of the day ahead, they grabbed some more bait, went out to the Bay Port Terminal spillway, and found some nice reds.
After breaking his line off on a big fish, he re-tied and made another cast. BAM, hooked up on a red. This red was very special. As soon as it emerged from the depths, he could see the red tag sticking out of the back of that redfish. His dad grabbed the net, and it took off right before he could get in. Once the red was safely in the net, a scream was let out, and Michael knew he had just won a brand new 2023 Ford F150 XLT Super Cab connected to a Haynie 23’ Bigfoot with a Mercury 150 L Pro XS Optimax and Coastline Trailer.
