Tournament Results: 
Forty-two boats fished the Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament yesterday Oct 16th and The “BIG FISH” weighed in at 6lbs! Anglers and co-anglers could be seen from shore wearing pink t-shirts. Slogans like “fight like a girl” and “real men wear pink” were seen. The winner of the tournament came in with 5 fish totaling 16lbs. The tournament sponsors were generous and everyone who purchased a raffle ticket walked away with a prize. Denny Eubanks of Fishgillz auctioned off two pair of pink fishgillz sunglasses with proceeds going directly to charity. Fishgillz auction winners also took home a fishgillz hat and a ChumLine (a retainer that makes any pair of glasses float). Most of the fish were caught early in the morning. Photos of fish caught at Rocky Fork Lake can be viewed at www.rockyforkmarine.com.
