Gale Frazee, Port Captain: The 2019 Ludington Tournament started off in good weather with 15 boats and 49 crew members. The 9am fish call counted 13 fish caught. The fishing was spotty with most of the boats going north of the Big Sable lighthouse to find fish.
Lines were pulled at 1pm and captains brought their catch into Harbor View for weigh-in at 2pm. The catch was 27 fish for a total of 241 pounds. Prizes were as follows: Big Fish #1 29.45 lbs (King) – Salty Dog, Dave Zawacki; Big Fish #2 24.3lbs (King) – Fish! Fish! Fish!, Larry Tabaka; First place – Fish! Fish! Fish!, Larry Tabaka; Second place – Fish Stix, Dave Hutton; Third place – Salty Dog, Dave Zawacki; Fourth place – Reel Affair, Chris Christoph; Fifth place – Texas True, Dennis Henderson.
