Re: World Cup Tournament day 1 fish count

I don;t have the final points with me, should have them soon, but it went
#1 Mark Healey by a substantial edge
#2 GR Tarr by .07 points
#3 Dennis Haussler

I don;'t feel bad loosing to either of these guys, as they were diving deep, and doing a good job of it.
7/10 of a pound behind GR is pretty good by me.

I will post write up and standings as soon as I get a chance, got to get ready for nationals in RI.

Congrats to Mark, GR, and all the rest of the divers, for a great meet, and wonderful time.

Re: World Cup Tournament day 1 fish count

Once again Dennis Haussler, Pelaj, and 20Fathoms put on a great meet... We had 21 divers total compete this year. 18 or 21 divers put points on the board. This year was an extremely fishy year. We had Wahoo, Dorado, Marlin, Yellow Tail, Amber Jack, Yellow Fin Tuna, Milk Fish, Toro, Bonita, Skip Jack,and Rooster Fish all turned in. Vis was incredible with some spots having over 80 foot. The weather couldn't have been better with almost no wind and flat seas most of the time. Everyone enjoyed their boat rides to all their favorite hunting spots. Tim Hatler of Palapas Ventana along with his staff made everyone feel welcome and had things running smoothly each and every day. At the end of each day we all enjoyed making it back to the beach to have our catch quickly weighted and put on ice. Most all of the fish caught over the week was sold to help raise money to improve the local schools facialities as well as their bus. I believe something like 1000 bucks was raised.

Personally I have to say that each year this tournament has gotten better and better. With sponsors like Pelaj, Riffe, Imersion, Pelgic, HammerHead,Wong,Rob Allen, and many others. Each and every competitor left with an amazing gift. How ever its not about the prizes we won, but rather the time we had. I really enjoyed hearing stories about goat hunting in Australia to the creation of ultimate fighting. Making new friends and creating some memories that will last a life time. I am already looking forward to next years meet. Here are some photos from this past week. I am sure Dennis will post some more but these are from my camera...

Thanks Dennis
