Capt. Eric Chaignet took home first place this year in the 2015 TBSC event. Capt. Eric consistently scores in the top 10 in this event, and was able to pull of the win this year with some quality fish.
Team Reef Pirate took 1st place at the 1st SWFL Lionfish Derby this past weekend. Collecting a total of 101 lionfish in one day. The team of Captain Chris Barton, Alex Fogg and Greg Johnson competed against several other teams, and barely beat out the second place group, Team Zookeeper (who were on the same boat), by 6 fish. We had a great time and look forward to the next event!
