The fishing proved once again that the Abacos have some of the best fishing the northern Bahamas have to offer. This year’s winner, Wave Paver, a 61-foot Garlington captained by Jason Parker, caught two blue marlin, four white marlin and a sailfish to take top honors — with bonus points for a grand slam. The second-place boat, Plane Simple, a 57-foot Spencer captained by Jimmy Worley, caught three blue marlin all at once in an amazing tripleheader and added another four whites. The third-place boat, Bear Trap, a 57-foot Spencer captained by Ed Dwyer, caught one blue marlin, two whites and a sail. A total of 99 billfish were caught in the tournament’s three days of fishing.
