January 16, 2010 – Final Day Billfish tourney


The final day of the Los Suenos Signature Billfish Series is off to a slow start for most of the boats.  At the 10.00 am update there had only been 35 sailfish caught.  One of the 42′ Mavericks has 6 sailfish already today and they have gone from 6th place to second place.  If the sailfish bite slows today anyone in the top 10 that catches a marlin has a chance to take the big prize.  It should be an interesting day out there…I will provide updates every couple hours.

The noon update for the final day of the tourney continues to show a slower than usual bite offshore.   There were 65 sailfish and 2 marlin caught by noon today.  The boats that caught marlin were in the middle of the pack so the leader board remains unchanged.

The 2 pm update is in and they are up to 100 sails and 2 marlin so far today.  The Cerveza remains in first place by 500 points over the second place Big Oh.   The Big Oh is top boat today with 10 sailfish.  There are 4 or 5 boats challenging for third place and they are all within 100 points of each other.

The last 2 hours of the tourney should be good.  One of those top teams is going to have to find a pod of sailfish and/or catch a marlin or two to overtake the Cerveza.

The results are in and congrats to the Carveza for taking 1st place in the first leg of the Los Suenos Signature Billfish tourney.  The Big Oh was 2nd and the Hook was 3rd.  There was no late afternoon sailfish bite and only 1 marlin caught between 2pm and 4pm today so the leaderboard remained unchanged.

In the 3 day tournament there were 676 sailfish and 12 marlin caught by the 42 boats in the tournament.
