The Fall tournament season has officially begun and team HYPER is excited to announce we came in 2nd place for Dorado in the Annual Marlini Tournament with a 25.20 pound Dorado.
Two species are targeted in this tournament, dorado and wahoo. There are 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes for Dorado and Wahoo is biggest fish takes all.
There are also pots for both species ranging from $1,000 pesos up to $10,000 pesos. This year’s tournament promised a $250,000 peso guaranteed purse.
It was a great day with excellent fishing conditions.
We spent the week prior to the tournament watching a storm develop which threatened to bring big swells and possibly disrupt the event. Luckily the storm stayed far enough south that there were no disruptions nor challenging conditions. A huge shout out to my Captain and marinero as well as my amigo Chip!!
Congratulations to all the participants and winners! Keep them lines tight and poles bent.
