I had the honor of fishing with Breathe Reel Deep with some great friends. Shawn, Andy, Angelo, Joey, myself and Brian fished this tournament together for the first time and we all had a blast. The tournament was first class and we all had a great time. We swordfished with no luck. You would think that with all the knowledgeable capts on this boat that we would have a least 1 but all we ate was humble pie from the ocean.

We raise at least 5 billfish with 2 blue marlin released. Angelo caught all the fish with a nasty 88 lbs Wahoo to go with the 2 blues. Very proud of our team and the effort given to all the grass clearing. My arm is so sore from clearing grass.
Enjoy the pictures. Most all fish were caught close from near Beer Can to the Steps. Water was beautiful but the scattered grass sucked. We ended up 3rd in Tag / release , 2nd in Wahoo 88lbs and 2nd top angler Angelo.

Thanks for sharing

Great report and pictures, sounds like you had a hard working team, sure paid off. Thanks Jeff for the call, we ended up breaking down 8 miles out and had to come, looks like we were heading in the wrong direction anyways according to Yellowfin (Robert) report

My buddy David Crawley on the boat Lunasea (sp) got the winning 91 lb Wahoo high speed trolling on the way in to the scales. It was caught at the Nipple.

Winning wahoo was 97lbs and some change Lunasea also weighed in a 81 pounder, which was the fifth place wahoo. It was kind of funny seeing people coming in with 70 and 80 lb hooters and walking away dejected.
