Georgetown Blue Marlin Tournament

The second leg of the SC Governor's Cup Billfishing Series was held out of Georgetown Landing Marina May 26-29 and was won by Caramba. Owned by Bob Faith of Mt. Pleasant and captained by Dale Lackey, Caramba released two blue marlin over the weekend to finish with 1200 points.

Fishing aboard Caramba was 11-year old angler John Taylor, who caught a nice 13.4 pound dolphin on Saturday.

Bringing some excitement to Saturday's weigh-in was a 148-pound mako shark, and Poe Ratterree, who fished aboard the Christy II, raised some eyebrows with the tournament-best 63 pound wahoo he brought to the scales.

Shark! This mako was the source of great interest among passers-by.
