We had a great turnout for the 50th Annual CFBMT! 30 boats fished and OUTNUMBERED took home the 1st Place Prize for both Total Blue Marlin Points and 1st Place Billfish. DEEP COLOR took home 2nd Place Billfish and OVERTIME took home 3rd Place Billfish. The Daily Release Winners were HORSE, OUTNUMBERED, and OVERTIME. Our first Outboard Category winner was team ALI-KAT out of Swansboro. HORSE took home 1st Place Dolphin and DEEP COLOR took home 1st Place Wahoo. Our Lady Anger award went to Lauren Summerville on OUTNUMBERED and our Jr. Angler Winner was Chase Davis on NUTS & BOLTS.
This year we auctioned off a custom one-of-a-kind 50th Annual CFBMT Henry 357 lever action rifle engraved by Commemorative Firearms. The proceeds from the auction when to First Fruit Ministries, a charity that truly changes peoples lives. Thanks to our amazing community we raised $11,500 for First Fruit Ministries and Joe Elphick took home his new rifle. None of this would be possible without the help of Jackson David and the Intracoastal Angler team, along with Robert Ayres of Range Time Guns & Outfitting.
