The second leg of the eighth annual Los Sueños Signature Billfish Series earlier this month broke all tournament records with more than 35 teams and 133 anglers releasing 1,057 billfish. First place went to Game On, captained by Tony Carrizosa; Gotcha, captained by Jimmy Kitchell, took second; and third place went to Big Oh, captained by Ronnie Fields. The top angler of the event was Gray Ingram, who was presented with an invitation to participate in the 2011 World Billfish Series Grand Championship, to be held Dec. 7 to 11 at the Los Sueños Marina in Herradura. For more information, contact Ashley Bretecher, tournament director, at 2630-4000 or a.bretecher@lsrm.com.
