Stormin Normin

July 28, 2009

This year Dragonfly Boatworks LLC was a sponsor of the Stormin Normin Inshore Challenge Fishing Tournament. The Stormin Norman Inshore Challenge is a not-for-profit organization forming in honor of Kent Norman. The inshore tournament is held annually in Fairhope, Alabama with the goal of raising funds to be donated in Kent’s name, to children who have lost a parent as well as local charities. The Challenge is open to anglers of all ages and skill levels. Every year the tournament draws nearly two hundred competing anglers, making it the largest inshore tournament in the state. The daylong weigh in event brings hundreds of spectators who enjoy the beach, live music, great food, cold drinks and good friends. The tournament is open to all Alabama waters. Prizes were awarded in the following categories: Speckled Trout, Rdfish, Flounder White Trout and Tripletail. The tournament is open to adult and junior anglers. With a optional Calcutta and an entry fee of only twenty dollars it makes it one of the most affordable fishing events of the year. This year’s first place and Lunker results:
