Eight boats elected to fish Friay, during day two of the Edisto Marina Billfish Tournament. The weigh-in was from 5 until 8 with a catered supper of mahi mahi afterward by Lowcountry Eats. The weather was triple-H; very hot but also very fishable! On Day One Rance Jennings, age 6, brought in a 13-pound dolphin while fishing on Micabe. Also on Day One from Micabe, lady angler Blair Bartleson brought in an 18.4-pound dolphin. Also from Day One Clay Lee, age 14, brought in an 11.6-pound mahi fishing from Reel Hooker. Congrats to all the youth anglers! Day Two only saw one sailfish released by Trick 'Em, but some nice wahoo were brought to the scales. Bob Faith, owner of Caramba surged into second place in the wahoo category with a 41.6-pound HOO!
