Pesca con Mosca wins the 5th annual Tres Pescados Slam Tournament

The 5th annual three-day Tres Pescados Slam Fishing tournament ended on Saturday August 17th. A total of 19 anglers competed in this year’s tournament, which saw the participants applying their fishing skills in both good and bad weather conditions. The purpose of the fishing tournament is to highlight the importance of the three species of protected fish in Belize – Tarpon, Bonefish and Permit. At the end of the competition, the team Pesca con Mosca topped the other anglers.

In the first day of the tournament, the weather was not the best. “Day one saw cloudy and dreary skies as a tropical depression moved towards the Yucatan, but anglers remained optimistic. In the end teams prevailed and both bonefish and tarpon were landed in the tough conditions. Pesca con Mosca and team Big E took top honors, both racking up 575 points. Last year’s third place team Anglers Abroad was a close second at 300. Daniel Smith, the tournaments youngest angler at 14 was in a tie for 3rd with his team the Holiday Strikers,” explained a press release from Flyfish.com, the tournament’s organizer.

At the end of the tournament, first place was captured by Pesca con Mosca comprising of anglers Tim O’Brien, Kyle Kuling and fishing guide Cesar Acosta who captured 1550 points. Second place was Big E Flats comprising of angler Eric Wasserman and fishing guide Abner “Abbie” Marin who got 1325 points. Third place was Fin Addicts comprising of anglers Dean McNaught, Kevin Gallant and fishing guide Emir Marin who secured 675 points. The Top Guide Award went to Cesar Acosta of El Pescador Resort.

According to the organizers, during the three days, a total of 88 Bonefish, four Permits and seven Tarpon were caught, measured, documented and released. This year, there were three Grand Slams (all three types of fish caught).

The tournament raised $12,000BZ for the newly formed CARLOS MARIN FOUNDATION in Belize. These funds will be used locally in Belize to benefit the bonefish, permit and tarpon fisheries, their habitats and the protection of both.
