Mark took is day 2 lead into the final round and after weighing in over 23 pounds walked off the stage with a $75,000.00 prize package that included a 22′ Yellowfin Boat, 250 HP Yamaha Outboard and a Ameratrail custom tandem axle trailer.

“It was definitely a good day out there,” said Robinson, 33, who left the Port Arthur docks with the other anglers at 7:15 a.m. “The tide was higher – wide-open hunting. By 8:45 a.m., I had three fish. And I kept catching them, and kept upgrading and upgrading. Every fish I caught kept getting bigger.”

Robinson couldn’t see beneath the water while he fished, and he relied on a black Berkley Gulp – a plastic paddle bait that mimics redfish prey. “I got confidence in it,” Robinson said. “You go with what you’ve got confidence in.” -BK
