2012 Carolina Billfish Classic - Day Two Results

Steven Craig with a 56.4-pound dolphin
While none of the boats fishing from Georgetown went fishing on Friday, all but one of the Charleston-based Governor's Cup fleet fished on Friday and reported rough ocean conditions and a strong billfish bite! Two boats flew five flags upon returning to Toler's Cove, and Reel Passion surged into first place on the strength of their one blue marlin release, and four more sailfish releases. Sadie Beth kept pace with five sailfish releases on Friday's fishing, but second place belongs to Caramba while Home Run is in third place. Meat fish were also in the mix on Day Two of the CBC with Compromise bringing in a bull dolphin that weighed 56.4-pounds. The slab mahi was reeled in by 16-year old angler Steven Craig. Dem Boys fished back-to-back days but found some blackfin tuna to weigh-in and Tommy Hancock took over the top spot with his 25.4-pound tuna. The Day One wahoo from Christy II in Georgetown held up thru Day Two and that Hoo caught by David Mabry weighed 30.7-pounds. Twenty-five boats will be fishing on Day Three of the Carolina Billfish Classic.
