KLC, There you go assuming again. No Mon, Was not in my boat.

I went with my Belizian(and a couple of Gringo)friends in another boat.

We won BIGGEST Tuna. grin Did not have a beer until we weighed in at the dock, So THERE!!!!

Most of the 8 total fish we caught were on a pink fishing pole belonging to Ms 2Miles, including the winning fish. our Lucky pole. laugh

My biggest Tuna was 10 pounds (Yea I weighed it) and I had to wrestle with a shark to get the fish on board, shark only had his teeth in the tuna and the tail was hanging off a bit when I landed it. I won wrestle match, shark still hungry, Tuna lost battle. sick

At the moment we have our guests Nicole and Jameson staying here with us, for their well deserved Honeymoon here at Portofino Beach Resort. Jameson is a true fishing passionate who has been a professional fisherman for many many years.

Taking the well deserved first place with ‘The Reel Deal’ with Captain Hillyboo Lara, having his son Byron reeling in the largest 22lbs. Dorado, giving him the prize for Top Junior Angler. Not only the boat got manned by the two of them, our guests Nicole and Jameson where part of the team. The second largest Dorado 19lbs. got caught by our guest Jameson, however didn’t t got recognized as the same boat and team couldn’t make first and second place at the same time.

Because Jameson’s heart is into fishing, and did a lot of research regarding Belize, he did not only come to Belize for his honeymoon but also came here to attend the “El Dorado Rodeo 2010”, which was held past Saturday, May 22nd 2010, with the official weigh in and trophy ceremony at the Holiday Hotel, located in the center of San Pedro Town.

KLC, They are pretty small compaired to our USA east coast Tuna

Our 12 lb took the prize, Hell even my 10 lb would have won except a shark decided to put some holes in it first.
Holy sushi no count.

    Fishing enthusiasts came out to brave the seas on Saturday May 22nd in the quest for Dorados at the 4th annual Dorado Tournament. During the day, fishermen trolled the sea for the big ones, and called in their catch before docking at the Holiday Hotel beach where eager onlookers and friends came to see who had caught the winning fish.

    Originally scheduled for the Labor Day weekend (May 1st), the tournament had to be postponed when rough seas and strong winds blew in. As such, there were fewer boats registered to take part in the tournament, but nevertheless, there was a buzz of excitement as one by one, the boats docked and brought in their catch (a mix of Dorado and tuna) to be weighed.

    Below find the list of winners, along with their prizes:

1st Place Boat – The Reel Deal – 22lb Dorado - $3000.00
2nd place Boat - Contender - $1500.00
3rd place boat - Da Next Lady - $500.00

Top Female Angler – 20lb Dorado - Kathy White - $500.00
Top Jr. Angler – 22lb Dorado - Byron Lara - $500.00
Biggest Tuna – 12lbs - Enrique Marin Jr. - $ 500.00

Calcutta:
Contender - $1000.00
Real Deal - $500.00
