So that’s a wrap on our first ever all ladies tournament here at the Marina Pez Vela Costa Rica.
It was a total honour to be involved in such a great event and see a fantastic group of ladies come together from around the world for a weekend of fun, fishing and a break away from their normal lives back home. Husbands near & far were literally left ‘holding the baby’ whilst the girls thrashed it out to try & become one of the the worlds top female Billfish Anglers.
Our 31’ GOOD DAY was the smallest boat in the fleet but we never mind being an underdog and took home the honours for the biggest Tuna of the weekend with a two fish combined weight of 80lbs for fish of 41lb & 38lbs.
Over the weekend we released 8 Sailfish & caught 3 nice Tuna. Marbely & Cathy Gilmour in our team caught their first ever Billfish, well done girls! Stella Humphreys , Iby & Marbely caught their first ever Tuna, Marbelys fight being an epic 45 minute battle on a light spinning rod, well done!
Huge congrats to the overall winners UNO MAS releasing a staggering 49 Sailfish in 2 days, the bite was on for sure!
BIG OH released 44 Sails & Quepos based boat Game Plan released 40 Sails for 3rd place. Our friends aboard Caribsea Sportfishing released a Grand Slam on the final day with a Blue Marlin, Black Marlin & 4 Sailfish & took home the cash for the most Marlin caught. A 50lb Bull Dorado took home the top dorado $$.
A truly World class event with some top notch female Anglers. Here’s hoping for an even bigger and better event in 2020. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more and are interested in putting a team together for next year, no experience is necessary!
