2017 Top Money Winner

Total Field Seasonal Paybacksjimmy

Anytime a Elite Redfish tournament is taking place, Lumberton Texas angler and Simmons Custom Rigging pro Jimmy Lloyd is going to be a favorite to win.

In 2017 the Elite Redfish Series divided it’s events and field into 2 divisions. The top winner in the East division was Shane Pescay, winning a whopping $89,750.00 but that wasn’t good enough to best Jimmy who took home an amazing $92,500.00 while fishing just 3 events in the West division.

These 2 anglers alone took home over $180,000.00 by fishing just 3 events each, but that’s not the only winners from this fabulous Elite tournament season.

Victoria Texas angler, Mark Robinson started off the year by winning the 2017 Elite Classic Kick Off event that took place in Port Arthur Texas as part of Mardi Gras 2017.

Mark took home the top prize and put $75,000.00 in the bank by winning this single event to kick off the 2017 tournament season.

Louisiana angler and frogg toggs pro, Paul Dufrene finished in 4th place on the money list with $33,500.00 on just 3 events in the East division.

The top 5 finished off with Yamaha pro, Dwayne Eschete taking home a cool $23,000.00 for the 3 events his fished in the West.

The field of Elite Redfish Series pros shared in over $435,900.00 in total winnings during the 2017 season.

The 2017 tournament season was a huge success and that due to great sponsors like Skeeter Boats, Yamaha Outboards, McClain Trailers, Frogg Toggs, TH Marine, LMC Marine, Check It Stik and more.

The tour also benefitted from visiting fun and fish filled waters and communities around the gulf coast like, Port Arthur Texas, D’Iberville Mississippi, Chalmette Louisiana, Kemah Texas and finishing the year off after Hurricane Harvey hit Port Aransas hard, forcing a change of venue to South Padre Island Texas.

2018 is just around the corner and whether a competitor, a fan, family member or sponsor we can promise you one thing. It’s going to be another great year to be a part of the Elite Redfish Tournament Series…
