The season started out a little rough for The HSJAA Speckled Trout Shootout Tournament series! We planned on starting the season on January 22nd 2017, but mother nature had other plans, with wind gust up to 55 mph HSJAA decided to postpone the tournament to the following Saturday January 28th. With 52 anglers competing for over $7000 in cash prizes and beautiful fishing conditions, the event well exceeded our expectations! The tournament was held a Jackie’s Brickhouse in Kemah Texas with open arms! Jackie and John owners of Jackie’s Brickhouse not only allowed us to hold the tournament at their facility, they donated another $1000 to the live bait division tournament pot, allowing HSJAA to pay the anglers even more money than expected!
HSJAA would like to thank all of the anglers for a great turn out and nice stringers at the scales! We would also like to thank all of the parents and friends who came out to support these young anglers and their efforts to compete in the first HSJAA Speckled Trout Shootout! And last but not least a big thank you to the crew of Jackie’s Brickhouse for a beautiful venue and awesome cuisine, and of course the $1000 donation to pay the kids even more money for their efforts!
