A record number of teams kicked off the first event in the 2012 Flatsmasters Redfish Series on Charlotte Harbor. 77 boats headed down the harbor at first light looking for a perfect pair of redfish. As 3:30pm rolled around the first flight of teams made their way to the stage. Lots of teams had 2 reds but many struggled to find slot size fish. Many reported that many reds were caught, oversized fish and minimum slot fish were in abundance. Later in the weigh-in, Team ATC Trucking got the crowd going with a pair of fish weighing 14.52lbs., they were unseated from atop the leaderboard by Team Offshore Performance who put up an impressive 14.72lbs. It looked like that weight would hold through the day until Team Towboat US-Charlotte Harbor, with Kyle Potts, Chris Magnano, and Brandon Buckner, lit up the scales with 15.46lbs, more than enough to take the win and a check for $4,750 including $1,750 bonus money and two trailer tires from Tire Kingdom.
In all this was the most teams ever to fish a Redfish Series event, The most prize money ever paid out in a Redfish Series event, and a great way to start the year!
