Go Up The Road wins game fishing award
Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs Darryl Smith was on hand to distribute prizes to successful anglers in the annual Budget Marine Wahoo Blowout tournament held at the T&T Yacht Club, Chaguaramas recently.
In his address, Minister Smith heaped praise on the event organisers—the T&T Game Fishing Association—and on the anglers for their massive hauls, congratulating them on their contribution to a lesser-known but exciting sport.
Team Go Up The Road was rewarded for their hard day’s work with the top prize in a competition that included 128 anglers on 30 boats in the rough waters and strong easterly winds off the North Coast and Grande Boca.
A total of 16 fishes were caught during the two-day tournament, a significant drop from the 73 fishes caught last year. The winning team comprising Ajodha Singh, Michael Freitas and Curtis Brizan was the Best Boat with 168.55 points.
On D Job captained by David Duncan finished in second place with 113.45 points and team Ramajay captained by Michael Ross ended third with 101.85 points.
Nigel Garcia of team On D Job won Best Angler and Heaviest Wahoo prizes with his haul of a 78.45lbs fish. Go Up The Road captured second and third spots with wahoos weighing in at 68.5lbs and 45.05lbs respectively.
