IGFA World Offshore Championship Ends

The World Offshore Championship concluded today at 3.00 pm and we now have the official results.

1st Place Mexico, with a local team from Los Cabos with 14 marlin released over the four day event. The team consisted of Hernando "el conejo" (rabbit) Gonzalez, Jobe Villavicencio, Cubi Villavicencio, Oscar Daccarrett and Drew Andrews. None of these guys are strangers to success. Up until last week, Jobe held the record for the largest tuna caught in the WON Tuna Tournament, until fellow angler Oscar broke that record last week with a 383 lb tuna. Jobe and Cubi are brothers and Hernando is their cousin. These three formed the crew aboard our very popular charter boat "Ni Modo" for many years and they are now the crew aboard "Get Over It". You could not get a more experienced team than these guys that fish this area pretty much every day. CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR LOCAL BOYS AND FRIENDS!

2nd Place Guatemala for ten marlin released.

3rd Place Brazil for nine marlin released.

Looks like the Latin guys are on a roll.
