Doug McKnight and Yellow Dog with the win.


Saturday night, August 8th concluded this year's tournament in style with the awards banquet beachfront at the Holiday Hotel. All of our teams, captains and supporters were on hand to witness the conclusion of this historic event. But before we get to that, here's a recap of the fishing days.

Day one saw probably the best weather we have fished since this events inception. Beautiful skies, tide and wind would make day one the best ever, as anglers left the beach into a rising sun. Last years champions YELLOW DOG would come home with the first daily slam of the tournament. Not to be outdone, ANGLERS ABROAD also got the slam, putting the pressure right back on the champions. Jerry Lappier of SIZE MATTERS came home with an absolute monster of a permit, making everyone a little jealous. Our good friend Jenn Parker landed the only other tarpon on the day and put the ladies up near the front of the leaderboard.

Tarpon were the catch on day two, as nine fish made length and points. Weather was not a factor. Hot and sunny, but still no change at the top as YELLOW DOG and ANGLERS ABROAD continued to lead the way with tarpon landed. Our friends from the north Alejandro 'SandFlea' Vega and his partner rallied to capture third place on day two with a great permit late in the day. The third annual pig roast would conclude day two, as all teams enjoyed some spectacular Belizean hospitality with pork and all the trimmings.
