Kimberly Schurwon of the Woodlands, TX was the THIRD 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 her story:
Once the anchor was out, she grabbed some live shrimp, took her rod and reel, and cast the shrimp near old pylons. It did not take long after that shrimp hit bottom before something got a hold of it. She set the hook, and the fight was on! Once that fish was hooked, it tried everything to escape, including running through and around those pylons! Kimberly recalled, “It was like I was reeling that fish in through an obstacle course!” She could feel the line dragging across the pylons and knew it would break off if she did not bring that fish in quickly. Once the redfish was safely in the net, she realized it had a tag waving at her. Kimberly yelled to her husband, “Give me my glasses! IT’S A 2022 BLUE-TAGGED REDFISH!” With cheers all around, Kimberly clipped the tag, released the redfish, and headed off to one of our official weigh stations, West End Marina, to turn in the tag.
