A Belizean fishing team from Ambergris Caye captured second place at the annual “Wahoo de Plata” fishing tournament hosted in Mahahual, Mexico. The Johnny Quest team comprised of six local fishermen, represented Belize well on Saturday November 30th and December 1st. Hosted by Tequila Beach Resort, the fishing tournament attracted over 150 fishing enthusiasts including Belizean Anglers, onboard 49 different vessels.

Coming in first at the second annual Tequila Beach Resort Wahoo fishing tournament was MMM Que Tiene, captained by Mexican Azael Jimenez, who managed to capture a total of 588.5 points. The first place team took home a trophy and a 2013 pickup truck. Johnny Quest, captained by Belizean Michael Hancock, took second place with 285 points. The Belizean team took home $75,000 Pesos (Bze $11,397.94) in cash. Third place went to La Dońa, captained by Mexican Zafra Perez, with 282 points. They took home a 17-foot skiff. Fourth place went to Seas Star, captained by Miguel Marzuca. With 234 points total, they took home a motorcycle.

Awards and prizes were given out to all top fishing teams shortly after the weigh-in. According to El Diario de Quintana Roo Newspaper, Belizean Michael Hancock captured the competition’s largest wahoo, 28.55 pounds, and thus he took the individual prize as well

Belize’s team Johnny Quest comprises of Michael Hancock, Andre Paz, Emmanuel Samos, Daniel Gregorio, Irvin Chacon and Mario Donis. According to Samos, the second day was the best of the two days. “We concentrated and fished near Cayo Lobo off Banco Chinchoro on both days and we were lucky. We caught three wahoos on each of the two days but on the second day we landed the largest wahoo. We are happy that from the two Belizean teams, at least one was able to do exceptional and make a good name for the country. It is a win for San Pedro as well as for the rest of Belize. We are certainly happy.”
