Kelly Dupre – Kevin Harvey

Kelly Dupre / Kevin Harvey Master the Madness!

Kevin Harvey and Kelly Dupre take the first event of the season with 59.24 pounds and drive off with the Champion’s Grand Prize package. The 22′ Tidewater Baymax Boat powered by a 200XB Yamaha Outboard and the rig sitting on a McClain Trailers custom tandem axle trailer. This fabulous Champion’s guaranteed grand prize at each of the 4 team open events this season carries a retail value of nearly $60,000.00.

The 2020 Tidewater Boats Elite Redfish Series, presented by Yamaha Outboards got underway Friday morning June 19 with the launching of the fleet for day 1 of this 2 day competition taking place in Myrtle Grove Louisiana.

The #MyrtleGroveMadness would allow 2 angler teams to keep 3 redfish per day for a tournament total limit of 6. Each day teams would have to bring in 2 “slot” fish, measuring between 16 and 27 inches per Louisiana state law and 1 “over” fish that could push the line all the way up the Check It Stik measuring board to 30″. The over as it is known would play a pivotal roll in the outcome of this event.

As day 1 kicked off with the live stream of the morning launch it was evident that not only the anglers participating in this event were ready for some great fishing but so were the over 39,000 viewers that logged on to catch the stream. Within 3 hours the “reach” of that stream topped the 128,000 mark. The 2020 season was off and running… fast!

Team after team caught great fish in the sun drenched waters in and around Myrtle Grove. The bright blue bird skies meant teams could site fish, a favorite pattern among this field of pros. However, along with the blue skies came a high pressure front which left many teams scratching their heads. “We say hundreds of good fish but just couldn’t get them to bite”, stated local favorites, Eddie Adams and Sean O’Connell.

Next up: Showtime on Sabine July 11-12, presented by Visit Port Arthur Texas
