JOSHUA Camacho and his team, Bless, captured all the prizes in a tough weekend for participants at the Budget Marine Wahoo Blowout 2019 hosted by the Trinidad and Tobago Game Fishing Association at the Trinidad and Tobago Yacht Club, Chaguaramas. The event, which was sponsored by Budget Marine, had 19 boats and 72 anglers, including 11 juniors.
Camacho, who won best angler and heaviest Wahoo, was the lone participant to catch any Wahoo over the both days of competition. He caught a 31-pounder on Saturday and the next day held one weighing 22.5 pounds. The winning boat also successfully caught and released 1 Sailfish off the coast of Tobago. Speaking on behalf of the organizers, Marilyn Sheppard said, “It was really hard fishing, they had to go all the way off the Tobago coast to catch those fishes.”
Team Scatter Brain, comprising six juniors, won the best action shot of the two-day event.
In total 79 pounds of Wahoo and Dolphin were caught in two days with over 31lbs of Wahoo donated to the Christ Child Convalescent home.
The TTGFA thanked their sponsors for their continued support in this tournament and their push to promote sport fishing and conservation in Trinidad and Tobago.
