Redfish Tournament a First

Speaking of seafood another big event at this year's festival was the Redfish tournament. Anglers battled the wind and rain Sunday morning in hopes of cashing in for one of the largest purses in the tournaments history, 75,000 dollars. The Redfish are required to fall within certain length and weight requirements, and the anglers are awarded points accordingly. In all there were 5 teams competing, and this is the first time they've fished this tournament in North Carolina.
