Gulf Coast Mariner Magazine Takes Home 1st Place Heaviest Stringer Guided at the Ladies Casting for Conservation Fishing Tournament for Second Year in a Row
July 25th, 2017
Gulf Coast Mariner Magazine’s team, Kelly Groce and Colie Blumenshine, took home 1st place Heaviest Stringer Guided at the Galveston Bay Foundation‘s Ladies Casting for Conservation fishing tournament on Saturday, July 22 at Stingaree Restaurant & Marina. This is the second time in a row that these lady anglers have won 1st place heaviest stringer.
Bob Drisgill of Mangus II Charters was their guide again for this year’s tournament. The beginning of the day started out slow with storms brewing in the distance, but they managed to dodge all the rain. Around 10:30am things changed and they caught trout from 20-25 inches. Colie Blumenshine ended up catching her personal best trout which was 25 inches.
Ladies Casting for Conservation is a fun fishing tournament and also raises funds to keep our bay beautiful. We would like to thank the Galveston Bay Foundation and all the other sponsors of this tournament for putting on a great event. The ladies were especially excited about their new Castaway Rods that they won along with their plaque. We at Gulf Coast Mariner Magazine are looking forward to being a sponsor and participating in next year’s tournament.

Thanks for the memories.
Four years ago we started a boating magazine for Galveston Bay. My background was racing sailboats. I had done it all my life and I still enjoy doing it today. So, that’s what we did. We covered regattas, cruising out to Red Fish, and of course junior sailing.
Early on our readers informed us that they also like to fish along with sailing. We got the message. Now we cover both; offshore fishing and bay fishing along with the yachting scene. It’s been a great four years and we’re looking forward to the next four.
Thank you to all of our advertisers, writers, photographers, contributors and readers. We can’t do what we do without you. Now make sure your boat is in good working order and stay safe. Hope to see you on the bay.
