During the first leg in January, 2017, Alexis Chamorro's Xta-Sea team, fishing aboard Reel Doc, emerged victorious. They also took an early lead in the standings for the overall championship team of the series but with two more tournaments remaining, it's far too early to call. Last year's series champions, Capt. Jon Duffie's Agitator, placed second in the first leg, so they too are in the running for series champions. And while the first leg in January was marked by a phenomenal marlin bite, the fishing for Leg II looks like it's returned to normal, with plenty of Pacific sailfish found within the 50-mile tournament boundary.
