"SANDMAN" Wins Cap Cana Shootout 2014

"SANDMAN" DOMINATES THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE INTERNATIONAL BILLFISH SHOOTOUT AT CAP CANA

It wasnít long before the radio started crackling with reports of releases after the signal for lines-in on day one, Friday June 6th, and it continued that way throughout the four days of competition at this yearís International Cap Cana Billfish Shootout. At lines-out on that first day the fleet of 19 tournament boats had released a total of 2 blue marlin, 33 whites and four sails with Puerto Ricoís Peje in the lead one fish ahead of Sandman, Shark Byte, Singularis and Let It Be in the overall standings.

Day two dawned sunny with a light breeze out of the northeast and it turned out to be Sandmanís day with them taking the lead by releasing three blue marlin and three whites by the end of the day giving them a comfortable cushion of 1,020 points over second place Shark Byte while Peje held on to third one fish behind second. A total of 32 white marlin and 7 blues were released on day two. That evening Chivas Regal 12 year old Scotch hosted their annual White Party at the very elegant Dux Chivas Club.

The third day of fishing dawned much the same as the previous one with Sandman maintaining their lead of over a thousand points. However, it was the team aboard Singularis which had an outstanding day releasing 6 whites allowing them to leap frog over several boats and moving into second place while Peje continued to hold on to third place. Let It Be also had a fabulous day releasing 3 whites, a blue and a sail putting them in contention in the overall standings. The dayís totals came to 5 blue marlin, 39 whites and 2 sails. Evening festivities were held at Juanillo Beach where Bermudez Rum went all out hosting the traditional Caribbean Rum Bash which included a performance by the Ministry of Tourismís Folklore Dance Group, roast pork stuffed with rice and black beans and all the Bermudez Rum Mojitos you could drink while guests danced into the wee hours. Truly the most fun filled party of the year!

Next day came the well deserved Lay Day when anglers, crews and observers got a chance to shop, sightsee or enjoy the beach. On the night of the Lay Day the now famous Fourth Annual Cap Cana Shootout Cook Off was held. Three recipes were submitted to the panel of judges and Peje, three time defending champions, were dethroned by the team aboard Georgie Girl with their delicious Chicken Parmesan gourmet recipe. Attendees were all able to try the different creations accompanied by fine wines courtesy of Alvarez & Sanchez Distributors.

The fourth and final day of fishing was filled with excitement and awesome fishing. Arubaís team Alina started the action by releasing their first blue of the day at 9:32AM and hooked their last blue just before lines out ending the day with four blues and a white which propelled them from the middle of the pack to second place overall. Meanwhile Sandman kept their lead by releasing four whites while Singularis held on to third with three whites of their own. When it was all said and done a total of 166 billfish had been released in the tournament consisting of 25 blue marlin, 135 whites and 6 sailfish. An average of 8.73 fish per boat.

Top overall boat was Floridaís Sandman earning them the Release Marine Step Box Trophy and they also took First Place Team in the Chivas Regal Division. Angler James Turner got the most blues trophy and Third Place High Point Angler in the the Chivas Division while Sandra McMillan was Top Lady Angler and received the Mustad Silver Hook Trophy in the same division as Top Angler. All in all they took home a very hefty amount of loot in cash and prizes.

Other winners in the Chivas Regal Division were Team Alina who came out of nowhere on the last day to take Second Place while Singularis finished Third in the division and team member Jeff Stolarz got Second Place High Point Indivicual Angler.

Top overall Angler was Pejeís Carlos Garcia who received the Mustad Silver Hook Trophy in the Bermudez Rum Division and they were the First Place Team in that division as well. Also in the Bermudez Rum Division were Second Place Team Bandolera with team member Luis Fernandez Junior taking Third Place High Point Angler, while team Let It Be came in Third and team member Alex Baez won Second Place High Point Angler. All three top teams in the Bermudez Rum Division hail from Puerto Rico.
