I have not gotten the full details but a quick overnighter to the seamounts yielded 2 blue marlin releases out of 5 bites a few sails and a tuna well over 200 pounds that was on the leader but "released" after 2 1/2 hours.

Looks like the Frenzy got on them today, not sure what happend with the Dragin Fly, but we needed to catch 5 sails today for the win, and only landed two.....unless they missed one on the radio or something, but it looks like we are good for 2nd place for the 2nd or 3rd time in the Offshore World Championship. Really proud of the guys, that is a tournament with the best of the best charter boats in Costa Rica.

No matter how the day ends up, I am really proud of Capt. James and Capt. Berto and the team that they have put together. On Day 1 Dragin Fly jumped into first place and they have not looked over their shoulder, remaining in 1st place at the end of day 2 and day 3.
Despite a couple of slow days on day 2 and 3, landing only 4 sails each day, Dragin Fly is still at the top, but needs to land at least 400 points before beginning to add to their total, which is the best 3 of 4 days.
Go get 'em guys!
