Port Aransas Fishing: Deep Sea Roundup Mike Hagee

One man, by the name of Mike Hagee, had been fishing in this competition for over a decade. In fact, since 2007 he’s been attempting to win the Deep Sea Roundup. During the competition, he would get a trip through Port Aransas Fishing on the Wharf Cat or Scat Cat, ready for the biggest catch. This year, he decided on the Wharf Cat, and it faithfully led him to victory. With Captain Ronnie as his driver, Mike Hagee came home with a 39lb Kingfish.

Coming home, he won not only first prize, but second prize as well. He earned the top two spots for Kingfish! And if you thought that was a lot, it wasn’t all. Mike Hagee also got second place in the Red Snapper competition! On the left, you can see his catch almost the size of himself! And on the right, you can see him with his trophy, happily smiling, knowing he’d claimed his victory from the Deep Sea Roundup.

But wait—there’s more.

In the end, he won the overall grand champion runner-up for the offshore division. With all these prizes, surely he must have been a talented fisherman.
