Some of our anglers were able to seek out and find some bigger fish. Matson and Amcres, our sponsors put up some great cash prizes, which were competed for very heavily.
Biggest Fish $700 - Barracuda 39.2lb - Bill Dakano on Pepe Erepani

The awards ceremony took place after the tourney. Thanks to Mangrove Bay for supporting the weigh in. Also thank you to everyone who worked on the tournament and who helped out.
We want to thank Matson and Amcres for being big supporters for the tournament. Support them and bring in some containers.
We still have a few tournaments left this season, so get prepared.
