CASCA DURA EMERGES VICTORIOUS AT THE
2017 INTERNATIONAL BILLFISH SHOOTOUT IN CAP CANA

For Immediate Release
– Cap Cana, Dominican Republic June 26th –

Florida’s Captain Scott Leon skippered the 72’ Merritt, Casca Dura, to victory at the 23rd annual International Billfish Shootout in Cap Cana, Dominican Republic, June 8th thru 11th with anglers Lucas Abud from Brazil and Venezuelans Aquiles Garcia, Rafael Revenga and William Morrison releasing a total of eight white marlin plus three blue marlin over the three days of fishing.

“We saved the best for last” said a smiling Scott Leon referring to their five whites and a blue last day, which put them over the top as the team toasted with ice cold champagne. Boat owner Lucas Abud added “finally after so many years competing we are the winners of the International Billfish Shootout”. In addition team members Lucas Abud and Aquiles Garcia took second and third place respectively in the individual angler standings.

However, it was Puerto Rico’s angler Luis Mario Fernandez who won Top Angler honors fishing aboard local boat Tomahawk by releasing an individual total of five whites and a blue during the three day event. Tomahawk finished second in the boat/team category while Puerto Rico’s Dulce Coco finished third with angler Lisa Evans earning the Top Lady Angler spot.

The International Billfish Shootout was the second leg of the Dominican Billfish Triple-Header series and both Tomahawk’s and Casca Dura’s success placed them in second and third place respectively in the series within striking distance of the current leader, Venezuela’s Amazing Grace. The last leg of the series will take place October 5th thru the 8th during the Cap Cana Classic tournament in the heart of the blue marlin season.

Another important bit of related news is that in 2018 the Shootout will be moving to the fall-early winter blue marlin season in either October or November final dates to be announced shortly.

We thank the management and staff of Marina Cap Cana for their support during this year’s tournament, the International Game Fish Tournament Observers for keeping an eye on things and also thank Dubar Imperial Rum for keeping us in good spirits as well as AlSol Luxury Village for their impeccable attention.
