Tournament Day 1 Report

posted by Capt. George Beckwith of the DRAGIN FLY

Did not get a bite until after lunch, but came on pretty strong. We raised enough fish to be up front, but failed to get bites out of two striped marlin, maybe we can get the baits in front of them tomorrow. Also missed a couple of sails, but made up for it by catching 2 really nice blue marlin and a pair of sails. 1200 points and in a 3-way tie for 3rd. Daniel on the Spanish Fly is right ahead of us with 3 marlin releases, just behind the Adios with 4 marlin releases.

Day 2 report

James said that we needed a marlin early, ad we got it. Pat did a great job getting the pitch bait to a nice blue first thing in the morning. …… 4 hours later we catch a sail, then missed one sail twice or two sails once. At the buzzer Wayne hooks up with this nice little blue.
Overall, we’re in 2nd place with 2300 points, just behind Daniel on the Spanish Fly with 2500.
Things are pretty tight from there on down……

From Mitch on the SHOTGUN

Pretty slow only 140 fish for 2 days

 From Rich on the 60 Megabyte –

You can see how many fish have been caught and everyone is crying about how slow it is.

Today, I had 18 fish in the spread and only caught 2 sails. Also today, where I was fishing we saw 18 free jumpers.

I’ll send more info when I can.  I can’t keep my eyes open any longer and I hope to be asleep before 7:40 PM

We will get the final results for you today.   Good luck to all the boats!!  Captains, know you were tired but had a little time for us.  Thanks for the reports.
