Father and son Martin and Jody Leslie competed in the Fifth Edition of the “Wahoo de Plata” International Fishing Tournament in Mahahual, Quintana Roo, Mexico. From Friday, December 2nd to Sunday, December 4th, the Leslies represented San Pedro on their boat ‘Arsenal’, competing against 12 other boats from different municipalities across Quintana Roo and Belize.

With a passion for sport fishing and competion, the dynamic duo reeled in two prizes overall. They brought in the heaviest wahoo at 46.52 pounds, claiming first place. Second and third place went to Luis Contreras Castillo. The Leslies also took third place for the total accumulated pounds of wahoo.

According to Captain Jody Leslie, the win was not without its challenges. “At first we were discouraged because our fishing was halted on Saturday. Our friend’s engine shut down and after attempting to find the problem, we spent three hours towing them back to Mahahual. Despite not being able to catch wahoo that day, no one beat the wahoo we caught the previous day. My dad and I never gave up, and I’m very happy about the win,” said Leslie.
