  • Caramba wins Carolina Billfish Classic

    The third day of the Carolina Billfish Classic at Toler's Cove Marina saw an epic duel unfold in the afternoon between two boats competing for the CBC title. Sportin' Life, which won the last Gov. Cup event at Gerogetown, was ahead of Caramba by 100 points. Caramba, which had three sailfish releases and one blue marlin release on Day Two, kept up the fight and released three more sailfish on the final Day. Bob Faith is owner of the Caramaba and Dale Lackey is captain, the same team that won the 2010 CBC. 'We tacked on the final points with one last sailfish release with about 15 minutes left in the day,' said Faith. Gov. Cup rules stipulate that the fishing day ends at 3 p.m. The unofficial result gives Caramaba the CBC title with a total of 1800 points. Sportin' Life released a blue marlin and a sailfish on Day Two, and added a white marlin release and two more sailfish releases on Day Three. Daymaker had four sailfish releases on Day One and added two more sailfish releases on Day Three. Rascal had three sailfish releases on Day One.

    An exciting weigh-in included two changes in the meatfish divisions. Chip Jones brought a 12.8-pound tuna to the docks, giving the tuna division to Syked Out. While Full Pull angler Lenny Cannon delivered a 52.2-pound bull dolphin to take the top spot in the division. Matt Key's Day One wahoo held up to win that division for El Tejano.
