Top honors in the 6th Annual Clay Roberts Memorial Inshore Slam Fishing Tournament, sponsored by In River Or Ocean, went to the D. J. Cabler’s team whose Clay Roberts’ record slam weighed in at 16.46 pounds. Terry Sturgeon’s team placed second in the slam (14.27) and Tom Riley placed third (14.06).
Gary Roberts, of Roberts Pharmacy in San Marco, considered the tournament “a complete success. Eighty boats registered for the competition. Half of the teams weighed in fish. Nineteen slams were weighed in.  Four Junior Anglers weighed in.”
Other winning results include: Bob Morris weighed a 7.46 pound red, Ron Schurr weighed a 6.10 pound trout and Deedo Nelson weighed a 3.69 pound flounder. Kyle Mullaney of San Marco won the “Yellow Bread Award” given for the Bishop Kenny alumni with the biggest catch.
The sixth Clay Roberts Memorial Scholarship winner, Hunter Parry, along with three previous scholarship winners – Sean Brown, Thomas Lemmon and Brendan Coster – all fished this year’s tournament.
All proceeds from the tournament will be added to the Clay Roberts Memorial Scholarship Fund at Bishop Kenny High School. As next year’s dates are not set determined, mark your calendars for June 14 and June 21, 2014 (one date to be announced) and plan to participate in the Seventh Annual Clay Roberts Memorial Inshore Slam Fishing Tournament.
