Their dedication paid off on the first day of fishing, when a 365-pound blue marlin ate the lure for angler Jason Snyder and stayed tight for Reel Gold. Because it was the only marlin boated during the event, the team won First Place Team, all Daily Marlin Jackpots and the Largest Marlin Jackpot. Team Reel Gold didn't stop there with angler Richard Matson catching a 43.6-pound wahoo on the second day to win the Daily Wahoo Jackpot. There were no qualifying wahoo on the other fishing days, so once again Reel Gold cashed in. Total team winnings were $109,200, a Furuno GPS/sounder, a Tycoon Tackle custom rod, King Sailfish Mounts trophies, AFTCO championship apparel, a Yeti cooler, an Arribe reel, Steve Goione artwork, a Penn reel and an invitation to the 2015 Offshore World Championship in Quepos, Costa Rica.
