World Cup Tournament day 1 fish count

update on day 1 from world cup invitational.

Great day,
21 divers, 14 fish hit the beach. Great conditions, flat seas, clear water, LOTS of fish.
Mark Healey first place today with 4 nice fish. Yellowtail and amberjack shot at 96 feet, yeah that right, 96 feet. This guy likes DEEP water. I got to tell ya, at 85 its getting pretty dark, and at 95 you pretty much got to see the fish either at your level, or above you.
GR Tarr is in second, with 4 nice fish, I in third with a good wahoo and decent amber, and John Perretti is in 4th with a smokin 65lb wahoo.

Heres some pics, will update later.

Re: World Cup Tournament day 1 fish count

Healey is unreal,
but the games not over yet.
Day off, GR, Brian and Mark went to theyre pargo spot, and destroyed shafts, landed fish, lost fish, generally had a great time.
I went south with a few others, shot a nice rooster, some amarillo pargo, dogtooth, cabrilla, the good eating stuff.

The way it stands now, Mark, Mike Mcguire, GR, and me in top 4 order.

The dragon gun seems not to scare fish, until the shaft hits them !

Tomorrow is day 3 of comp, so will update after that.

John shot that with a 4 band cannon, not sure who made it, but the hole came from him using that to hold the fish up for pics.

Re: World Cup Tournament day 1 fish count

Great thread Dennis, thanks! It kills me that just a few of those Wahoo can't make it up here to Loreto. Lot's of big bull-head Papa Dorado though... water here is full of em'. Buena suerte a todos.

Congrats to Mark. Seems like you guys had a stellar tourney from what I've heard so far.

Can't wait to see some more fish pics.

Re: World Cup Tournament day 1 fish count

Keep us up to date on the final results. I am beside myself that I got screwed out of making it down but at least my scrub of a team mate Healey was able to whip some ass. Congrats to everyone. Team Red Tide and the Haole did a good job of keeping the carp hunters well inland it sounds like!
Mark is definitely one of the best guys in the sport and glad he could make it happen at a great tournament and location. Looking forward to seeing some pics.
