The 73rd Annual Texas International Fishing Tournament wrapped up this Sunday at the South Padre Island Convention Centre.
Over 100 winners in dozens of categories were presented trophies at the awards ceremony. Tournament Director Betty Wells said 371 boats were out fishing this year despite having some rough weather.
Wells said she enjoys seeing the participants enjoy themselves at the awards ceremony. She said it is a payoff for 12 months of hard work, and starting Monday, the process will recycle.
