Another great Tuna Shoot Out at Hotel Palmas De Cortez! Although the fishing was tough with only 5 tuna coming to the scale, they were all nice size fish.

 

The winning team of Bill and Patty Buffington Fishing on the Mi Pistola with Captain Danny and Raul landed a very nice yellowfin weighing in at 93.5lbs. They took the overall tournament as well as the $300 jackpot worth a total of just over $31,000 usd.

 

Second place went to Team Eat Me Lures who landed a very nice 66lbs. Tuna which was good enough to take the $500 and $1,000 jackpots worth just over $27,000 usd.

 

Third place went to Roberto Beltran who just missed out from taking the jackpots with his 65.7lbs. Tuna. Just 3 ounces separated 2nd and 3rd place.
