Grand Bahama Island – “Fishin A Loan,” a 55′ Hatteras owned by Kevin Marsh of Sycamore, Illinois, defeated a quality field of some of the finest Wahoo fishing boats in the world to win the third and final leg of the Bahamas Wahoo Championship.
On the final day of fishing “Fishing A Loan” brought two fine Wahoo to the scales, one a 66 pounder, and the second, 61 pounds. This catch enabled them to surpass the tournament leaders, “Timeless”, a 61′ Viking owned by David Mancini. “Timeless” brought to the scales the heaviest Wahoo on day one, a 45.5 pound fish, and also the heaviest Wahoo on day two, a 73 pound Wahoo. This 73 pound fish was the heaviest fish caught in the tournament.
“Zephyros” a 63′ Bertram, owned by Basil Goulandris of Nassau, Bahamas earned third place in the event.
