The Frenzy Team
For the second year in a row the Frenzy team wins the GIFT Tournament. The team's 4 day total of 19 releases put the team on top. After a challenging start with only 2 fish on day 1, we managed to catch 4 on day 2, 5 on day 3 and 8 on the last day.
Day 4 began with us plying some beautiful blue water about 40 miles off the coast of Quepos. We picked at the fish all day long, starting with a hungry small sail about 9 am. Shortly after that we hooked up a double header with Kerwin masterfully making quick work of his fish while mine headed for Nicaragua. We caught the double header thanks to Jose's boat handling skills and a lot of reeling on our part.
And a special thanks to the crew of the new Frenzy 43. Captain Jose did a superb job of finding the fish and positioning us each day as the body of fish moved with the moving water. Mates Marco and Glenn worked together to manage the cockpit and expertly tease fish to the boat. A "high five" to my fishing partner Kerwin who spent the week tying leaders and making sure all the technical aspects of our effort were in place. His last fish for the tournament was well over 100 pounds and took a lot of patience and skill to catch. There is no crew I would rather fish with. Pretty work guys!!!
Now it's time to head back to the US for a week before returning for another crack at those sails and to catch some of the whopper dorado we had to pass up all week.
The Frenzy continues...
