The fishing slowed down a bit for the third and final leg of the series but that didn't stop 50 teams from giving it their best shot on the water over the course of the three tournament fishing days. The slower-than-usual fishing meant that every bite could mean the difference in thousands of dollars in prize money. In the end, just 400 points separated the first-place team, Sea Angel, from the third-place finishers on Fish Tank, and only the time of the last billfish release separated third from fifth place. It was incredibly tight fishing by any standard. By the call for lines out, there had been 509 billfish released: 462 sailfish and 47 marlin.
