2 days of Pre World Cup diving for early arrivals here at Palapas Ventana- fishy conditions and a great vibe with folks from Guam, Australia, west and east coasts - so far so good - pics speak for themselves - this year the World Cup will be raising $$ for a new soccer field for our town!!

Re: ANNOUNCING - the World Cup Invitational Bluewater Meet - June 21-25, 2010

report,,,,,,,,,
2 days comp, lots of amberjack, decent wahoo, good roosters, misc milkfish, toro, dorado, sierra, lots of marlin and sailies around, but none landed.
Sasa Bratic is in first place as of today, gary sanchez 2nd, 3rd ron laguanna, 4th dennis haussler, 5th jerry guerra.
GR has a bad ear infection, and has not been able to dive beyond 10ft, so him and brian are swimming the entire inside face of cerralvo, looking for jacks and roosters.

Took the kids, wife and whitneys family out today, got close to 2 sperm whales out in the channel, jumped in, kicked like hell, but could only get close enough to watch its tail for awhile, then it got tired of having me on its flank, and dove.
Pretty cool, never seen sperms before.
I will update with pics on fish as soon as they get downloaded.
tomorrow, back to the game!!

Re: ANNOUNCING - the World Cup Invitational Bluewater Meet - June 21-25, 2010

unnoficial announcment,,
Chris Woods from AU has won the 5th world cup invitaitonal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THe rest will be announced as soon as I can.
Today was unbelievably slow,,,,,,,,,, water turned over,,,, green and dirty,,, and NO fish around.
Where we found marlin, sailies, AJ yesterday, was a wasteland.
Everyone dove theyre asses off, and most saw nothing.
Keith Love cracked a HUGE AJ, 89lbs and change, which will run him up in the standings alot.

Great meet, tons of fun, excelllent crew,,, and tim and his crew did an unbelievable job taking care of business!! Muchas Gracias Todos amigos!!!

Full report later, got to setup the prize table, and relax a bit.

Final standings,
1. Chris Wood from AU
2. GR Tarr
3. Ron Laguanna
4. Bernie Finnerty
5. Dennis Haussler
6. Sasa Bratic
7. Keith Love
8. Whitney Carden
9. Jerry Guerra
10. Frank Alfano
11. Gray Sanchez
12. Guy Nesbitt
13. Brian Head
14. Sean George
15. Randy Farmer

19. Leon Watts
20 Jerry Guerra Sr
21. Peter Marley
22. Jared Shuman
23. Jeremy Caulkins
24. Troy Williams
25. Mark Laptau

Mark made the mistake of diving without socks on a warmup day, and the blisters on his feet were enough to send him to the clinic for cleanup and anti biotics.

I want to give all the sponsors a HUGE shoutout, Riffe Internaitonal, Palapas Ventana, Imersion dive gear, Sea Sniper, HSD, Pelagic, Daryl Wong, Blue Water Sensations, Pacifico, Daryl Wong, Aimrite, Speargear, Absolute Blue, DaKine, HammerHead, Aeris.
I can;t say enough about these fine companies! TOP gear, tremendous support, its a pleasure to have them onboard for this world class event.



When I get a story up, will post it as well.
