Some 40 boats took to the seas to participate in the 55th Montego Bay Marlin Tournament over the weekend and a team from the Cayman Islands walked away as winners.
The team of six on “trading time” included Captain Charles Ebanks, David Alberga, Emil Terry, Chris Briggs and Caroline Pathanoff.
The tournament encouraged boats to release as many marlins as possible with injuring the fish. Four points were awarded to every marlin released, only marlins over 300 lbs were allowed to be boated.
Captian Ebanks and his crew attended the event last year buut weren’t as lucky.
“I guess with it being our first time last year, you learn were to fish, but this time I was a little more prepared so I was out their with the big dogs.”
‘Trading time’ racked up the most points, with two marlin releases, as well as 7 trophies.
