The "Oh Boy Oberto Redfish Cup" first tournament of the year has been over, for let's see... about a week now.
Punta Gorda Florida was the host for our first venue of the year. What a job the local community of Punta Gorda and the Port Charlotte area does on promoting, participating and attending the tournament.
From the youngsters to adults, there were plenty of activities for all. It began with the inaugural "Net Gains" — a pretty cool event — where the local youngsters of the community get to come out and interact with the pros. They learn safety, conservation, knots, identification of different species of fish and last but not least just get to hang out with their favorite pro angler. They must have had at least a couple hundred kids attend! This is a concept created by the "Cup" and will occur at every venue.
