“The weather and sea conditions were excellent and the Staff at the Sunscape Dorado Pacifico were wonderful as usual. Over all the results were better than last year with 17 Sailfish and 2 Dorado landed in the 2 day tournament. Only four boats and 8 anglers participated this year, so the average per boat/angler was higher. The winning Captain was Adan on the Gitana II with 5 sails and 1 Dorado. Dorris Alexander, a first time entrant and the only female, won the Top angler Trophy with 4 Sailfish and 1 Dorado. All but 1 of the 17 Sailfish were tagged with NOAA tags and released!! “

An incredible experience: Dorris shot this photo with her free hand, because the other was holding a rod with a roosterfish. Paul has a rooster on his rod, and Adolfo is actually holding two rods, with both hooked up.

at the same time. All four were released.
