Here's some pix of us with your ChumBuoy. We trolled with it and slayed the big ones. All the fish in this picture were caught while the ChumBuoy was behind the boat. We won the combined weight for the three largest dolphin
(see below). Also, check out drunken Ron riding the big ChumBuoy :-)
Here is the article that appeared in the local paper...
They Came Down From Cincinnati...
(MARATHON, FL) There's a new sheriff in town, or at least a new tournament fishing contender. Team Steel Leader comprised of all Buckeyes took first place in total weight, in the Bull and Cow Dolphin Tournament in Marathon, Florida last weekend. They also garnered prizes for the second largest wahoo. Wayde Hunker of Fairfield, OH captained his 45-foot center console through some high seas to boat some whoppers. The five anglers on board included fellow Ohioans Jim Laycock, Eric Moran, Ron Negray, Steve Verkley, and Dean Eberhart. It was the first fishing tournament of any kind for Laycock, Moran and Eberhart. Verkley, Negray and Hunker had fished together previously in sailfish tournaments.
The three largest dolphin totaled 76.2 lbs. This was more then enough to beat out local favorite and long-time tournament winner, charter boat Main Attraction, who consequently took second place. Everyone on board caught fish - big ones. Laycock won the dive watch for the second largest wahoo, and Eberhart also boated a wahoo.
Said Hunker, "The team really did function like a well-trained machine. We practiced a lot, and it showed. Everybody knew their role. I have never seen a team move so quickly. The sing of the reel brought the immediate cry of "Battle Stations!" then everything was in and converted in seconds. This allowed us to proceed to pitch live baits to the mates of the fish who hit the trolling rigs. Consequently we were able to pick them up both ways. By count, we only lost one fish in the entire tournament, and we didn't blow one gaff! Not bad for the new kids on the block."
