VINTAGE TAKES TOP HONORS AT THE 2010 PLAYA GRANDE CARIBE HOTEL and MARINA VENEZUELAN INTERNATIONAL SUPER SLAM

A fleet of 21 tournament boats participated in the 2010 edition of the Venezuelan International Super Slam in La Guaira, Venezuela, where 73 Billfish were released in the two days of the tournament including three grand slams in an event characterized by more blues and sails than the traditional high numbers of white marlin found in these waters from August to December. Broken down by species there were 30 blue marlin, 32 sailfish and 11 whites released.

After lines in on the first day of fishing, in the customary rough seas on and around the La Guaira Bank, local boat Aquaholic and Vintage, from Ft. Pierce, Florida, battled it out for the lead throughout the day. The top spot switched back on forth three times when just before lines out Aquaholic released their third blue of the day tying Vintage. At the same time breaking the tie by virtue of a 200 point bonus they received under tournament rules for having completed a grand slam earlier in the day. At day’s end Aquaholic had 2,100 points, Vintage 1,900, followed by the teams fishing aboard local boats Salabay and Pelagica who finished the day tied for third place with 1,400 each.

Day two dawned flat calm and the bite slowed considerably producing a day’s total of only 21 releases as compared to the 52 of the previous day. However, Vintage managed to catch up in points with Aquaholic in the first hour of fishing by releasing a sailfish. They then proceeded to take the lead by 1:30pm with another sailfish and just before lines out added another sailfish and a blue solidifying their win over the anglers aboard Aquaholic who were unable to register any releases on the second and final day of competition. In the battle for third place Pelagica prevailed over Salabay releasing a blue and a sail while Salabay only released one blue thus ending the tie with a 200 point difference in favor of Pelagica.

In the individual angler standings the tournament’s top angler was Joey Trefeiner of Ft. Pierce, Florida, who released 3 blues and a sail fishing aboard Vintage. In second place aboard Pelagica was Venezuelan Jose De Veer with two blues and two sails, and in third was another Venezuelan, Maurizio Scioscia, who fished aboard Mogambo with two blues and one sail.

A very special thanks go to our title Sponsor the Playa Grande Caribe Hotel and Marina who rolled out the red carpet with great food and fine accommodations. In addition thanks for their support go to Arawana Outdoors, AKR Investments, Solera Premium Beer, Pepsi Venezuela, Diplomatico Rum, Marak Sporstwear, Decocar Plastics and the Brotherhood of the Hook.
