The quality of catches during the 13th Annual Cayman Islands International Fishing Tournament, held May 5 - 8,  showed once again why the Caymans remain a popular angling destination.   A total of 56 boats braved rough seas and registered 18 blue marlin releases.  An impressive number of large dolphin were caught as well, with a 51-pound, three-ounce fish topping that category. Yellowfin tuna up to 74-pounds, four-ounces, were also encountered, along with wahoo up to 51-pounds, three-ounces.
   
SWS's George Poveromo, along with Florida marine biologist Craig Watson, served as judges for the event.

When the smoke cleared, the grand prize champion with four blue marlin releases was Keith Strang, who fished aboard the BAHARI, captained by Sandy Strang.
