The anglers have returned.

The Seminole Sportsmen’s Triple Crown Fishing Series kicked off March 19 with the Bass Buster’s Tournament in Big Cypress. It marked the series’ first tournament since 2019. The pandemic forced the series to be cancelled the past two years.


Fishermen departed at sunrise and returned mid-afternoon to Moses Jumper Jr.’s dock for the weigh-out and an awards ceremony.

Brian Billie won the Big Bass award for the biggest catch of the day.

The team of Daniel Conde and Frank Marrero captured first place. Trewston Pierce and Marshal Tommie finished runner-up.

The three-tournament series continues April 23 and will conclude May 21.
