After two days of deep sea fishing for the BK Big Fish tournament, anglers reeled in and registered over 900 pounds of fish at the Grand Harbour docks.
322 anglers were divided into 68 teams, all sharing the same goal of catching the biggest Tuna, Dolphin (Mahi) or Wahoo.
Paul Lyn from team Sweet addiction won first place for biggest Wahoo, tipping the scale at 35.2 pounds. Natalie Bush from team Alli B, reeled in the biggest Dolphin at 25.4 pounds. While, Clayton Ebanks from team Who’s Ya Daddy took first place for biggest Tuna which was also the heaviest overall fish in the tournament at 77.0 pounds.
In addition, four Blue Marlins were release in respect to the tournament’s conservation initiative. One of the four Marlins released, was hooked by Rob Harris from team Ausum. Harris said it took his team an hour to bring fish alongside the boat. (See video below for details)
