The call came over the radio. Chelita hooked up Blue Marlin. Capt/Mate Luis Wicho Ramirez had told us earlier that morning that all the fish were coming to the flippy flippy things. This one did too and its a big one!
The marlin bite was hot for the lure pullers today. We kept hearing report after report of marlin hooked up. But it was the little red center console that stole the show with a consistent performance of a marlin each day.
In the sailfish division Tranqulio caught fire mid day and ran away with the first place for an unprecedented 3rd straight year.
Tranquilo also won the Presidential Challenge of El Salvador and the Presidential Challenge Series along with the perpetual trophy in the Central America Billfish Series. Today was the final day for the series. Congrats to all the winners!
