Port Antonio, Portland — The 55th staging of the Port Antonio Sir Henry Morgan International Blue Marlin Tournament at the Ole Marina Port Antonio was one of the most successful stagings in recent years with one landed marlin and 21 tagged and released after two days of fishing.

On the first day Insatiable accounted for the only landed marlin and they also tagged and released one. Others releasing one were Running Over, Head First and Lady Susan. Fair Prospect, who lost one of their anglers, Lester J Spaulding, fished in his spirit as they tagged and released four.

On the second day Fair Prospect continued in the same vein tagging and releasing three and as David Moss said, “he's with us”, thus moving their tally to seven.

Earlier in the morning Integrity started with a double- header as Peter and Andrea Cowan hooked at the same time, tagging and releasing them and later accounting for another making it three tagged and released.

Lady Susan accounted for two as one of their anglers Stuart Murdock fought for two-and-a-half hours with a possible 250-pound marlin which was not landed. Tagging and releasing one were Lady G'Diver; Insatiable; Touch of Class; Running Over and Too Contagious.

Those tagging and releasing two and over were Running Over with two; Insatiable with two; Lady Susan with three and Fair Prospect with seven.

Today and tomorrow will be rest days and fishing resumes Friday with prize-giving later in the evening.
