2014 CIA / Charleston Inshore Angler Sheepshead Tournament
The BIG winners from the CIA tourney
Chance Jones and winning sheepshead
On a day that was quite windy inshore, yet pleasantly sunny and warm, the annual CIA or Charleston Inshore Angler sheepshead tourney went into the record books. Angler Chance Jones tipped the scales with a whopper of a sheepshead that weighed 12.26-pounds, and his boatload of friends took home some of the other top awards too, making them the top overall team for the 2014 sheepshead tourney. They swept the first three spots in the sheepshead competition and then added the 6th place sheepie for good measure too. The good vibes continued when 6th place angler Roy Owens won the SCDNR drawing for a FREE fishing reel after the otolith bone studies were completed from the fish racks. They continued their HOT HAND by winning the youth angler division with a 4.5-pound sheepshead AND for having the heaviest dogfish, a 2.48-pound BEAST - both caught by Hayden Cooper. Second place sheepshead went to Lloyd Green with a 7.72-pound fish, third place went to Paul Pundt with a 7.70-pounder, fourth place went to David Hutchinson with a 7.03-pound sheepie and the fifth place finisher was Donna Gerke with a 6.98-pound sheepshead.
