Steven Morales of Huffman was this year’s Sheepshead winner (9 lbs. 6 oz.) in the Inshore Division and was recently awarded a 2022 Shoalwater 19′ Cat Boat, McClain trailer, and 115hp Mercury Motor Package!
Here’s his story as told by the angler himself:
“It was June 16th, around 10:50 am. I was in Trinity Bay fishing for croaker so we could go fishing for gafftop and reds. I used my little Abu Garcia bait pole with a 6-pound test line. I had a tiny piece of shrimp on it. I had probably had four croakers. We said we would get six and then go to our spot. The next hit took off. I fought it for a good minute, but once I got it to the boat, I thought it was a black drum, but I wasted no time. I grabbed my leader and got it in…God was on my side.”
The angler’s brother-in-law exclaimed, “You just won a boat!”
- Tiny pole
- Tiny shrimp
- After croakers
- And only 6 LB mono that comes on the poles from the factory.
- That pole will forever go with me, but the line will be updated.
