Tristram Marine Open 2020

Tristram Marine Open 2020

Mar 2, 2020 | Tournament Results

The club would like to extend its thanks and appreciation to Tristram Marine and all the other tournament sponsors.

Some reasonably good fishing in our area and a weather forecast that promised plenty of fishing days was enough to entice a good number of entries to the Tristram Marine Open which ran in conjunction with the Nationals. We had 182 anglers fishing on 57 boats, an increase of about 24% on last year’s numbers.

Sol-E-Mar was off to a good start with a couple of early tagged marlin and came home strong with another tagged marlin and some impressive mahi mahi however, when vessel Fyssher tagged their fourth billfish on Friday to go with the one they’d already weighed, they were always going to be hard to beat.

Although Sol-E-Mar was unable to claim the overall points prize in the Tristram Marine Open, their mahi mahi catch was easily enough to win the Dennis Davey Trophy (Team Champion) and the Maui Jim Trophy (Interclub) in the Nationals.

See below for the overall results, congratulations to all the winners
