A couple of days ago there was a tournament on the East Cape, the 2008 Dorado Shoot Out.
A total of 131 boats were signed up and about 500 people.
This year’s entry fee was $250 usd per team.
One of the prizes was a 23ft completely rigged Super Panga built by Van Diaz Boats.
The prize for the biggest Dorado went for Dax Morgan aboard the Captain Morgan, Captain Steve Morgan, with a 64.4 lbs Bull Dorado.
Dax also won 2nd place on the 2007 WON Tuna Tournament with a 142.2 lbs yellow fin.
At the moment we don't have a picture of the winning Dorado, but here's the picture of the BIG check...
