  • RUPERT/RUPERT Win Charleston Open

    Congratulations Addison & David :)

    Enjoy that NEW MAKO !

    The 2013 Oakley Redfish Tour visited the second stop this past weekend with the Charleston Open. A field of 43 teams were met with tough conditions as early morning storms made fishing difficult. St Johnís Yacht Harbor played host on Friday evening for the Captains Meeting that included a huge spread and all the good stuff as PBR, Titos, and Macanudo rolled out the red carpet. The meeting concluded with a huge raffle with over $4,000 in swag from K2, GoPro, Bass Pro Shops and Quantum.

    Storms rolled in early Saturday and anglers were forced to adjust. The storms definitely had an impact as over half the field failed to weigh a single fish. The winning bag belonged to David and Addison Rupert with a total of 8.32 lbs earning them the keys to a 2013 Mako 18 LTS valued at $30,000. The top 9 teams earned checks and the total payback exceeded 200%.

    Up next the Tour heads to the Emerald Cost and the Destin Open for the final Tour stop of the year on September 7th. Registration for the Destin event will be held at Bass Pro Shops on Friday September 6th from 5-6pm. Anglers may still register for the Destin Open online at Check website for special early entry promotions for both remaining events.
