Tournament director Dan Jacobs called for lines in promptly at 7:00 a.m. and the boats headed out to fish until 2:30 p.m. While the conditions were close to perfect on the Pacific side, a good breeze put a sizable chop on the Sea of Cortez. The fishing, however, was a little slow for those anglers targeting tuna or wahoo. Several boats reported marlin releases, but only one angler managed to weigh any tuna for the entire fleet. Since there are no minimum weights each day, Jon Schmidt from Austin, Texas swept the tuna category with a surprising stringer of tuna. Schmidt’s first-place yellowfin tuna weighed a whopping 8.2-pounds and earned $2,333.34!
