Tristram Marine Open 2018

Tristram Marine Open 2018

by Feb 24, 2018Tournament Results

The Tristram Marine Open ran for eight days and despite a storm half way through last week, some boats were fishing on each of the eight days. We also saw marlin starting to be caught in reasonably good numbers although not all boats that caught marlin were in the tournament much to their chagrin. With the value of prizes and giveaways just under $70,000, the prize winners were very happy with their spoils and the 124 anglers fishing off 43 boats had a very enjoyable week.
