The sails bit through the rain showers this morning in the 21st El Salvador International Billfish Tournament.
Tranquilo and Monique were knotted up at 9 sails a piece when Tranquilo scored a quintuple of sails followed by a triple and never relinquished the lead.
The marlin bite picked up around noon as Chelita scored the first marlin release and also tagged the fish. Tagged fish are worth 525. Non tagged marlin are worth 500.
