Friendly fishing turns into fierce competition when Capt. Justin Leake challenges some friends to a redfish tournament with only bragging rights as the prize.
Redfish tournament pro Fred Myers gets the call to team up with Justin in a battle against Jeff Lange of Florida Watersports and Bill Bruhmuller, a local offshore charter captain. Even though their so-called “tournament” means nothing, each of the anglers is determined to outfish the others.
Team Leake decides to try sightfishing the shallow flats from the boat tower while Lange and Bruhmuller head to West Bay to look for tailing redfish feeding on finger mullet. Both teams find success, but the champion won’t be crowned until they rendezvous back at the dock.
