Team mates Vincent Rinando and Captain Filip Spencer opted to go for broke in this event. Vincent was currently in second place for Angler of the Year and needed to leapfrog 3 competitors who were tied for 1st place. Unable to locate and decent fish until late in the day, Vincent spent most of the day searching for large redfish. Captain Filip Spencer landed a nice redfish, but was unable to catch a keeper sized trout for this slam event.
