“That’s my kids’ school they’re raising money for,” said Johnson. Funds raised by the annual event go to the Apalachicola Bay Charter School.

Winning the 14-to-16 year-old age group was St. George Island’s Davis McGee, who threw for 130’ 9”, considerably better than 88’ foot that got him second place last year.

Brett Parker, 12, of Elkmont, Alabama, won the 11 to 13 age group with a toss of 110’ 6” while Garrett Ledford, 10, from Thomasville, Georgia, won the 10-and-under age group with a throw of 71’ 8”.

While the field of throwers was robust this year, about 150 total, there were no competitors in the freestyle category, in which competitors shoot mullet out of a giant tube, powered by compressed air.
