2013 Bohicket Gov. Cup - Running of the Bull Mahi; Final Results

The final day of fishing on June 8 saw 17 boats go fishing for blue marlin, white marlin and sailfish. Just one day after T.S. Andrea passed by, the oceans were calm and anglers were hoping for a supercharged billfish bite related to the tumultuous weather. Showtime raised, played and released a blue marlin at 10:18 a.m. and angler John Crislip handled the rod with precision. This release protected their Day One lead - giving Capt. Wink Doerzbacher and owner Fred Hardwick the right to hoist the Bohicket Cup in 2013. In second place it was Capt. Harvey Shiflet and Cacique releasing a sailfish to keep its second place status, good for an artist's print at the awards ceremony. Speaking with Drew Wilkinson on Cacique, he characterized the fishing conditions as 3 to 4-feet waves and very good mahi fishing. Did I mention that Wilkinson dropped a HUGE dolphin by the weigh station? Tilting the scales at 60.6-pounds, he easily leap-frogged the Day One leaders and shared that this was his personal best dolphin too. No kidding! Three big bull mahi came to the Bohicket docks as Sportin' Life weighed-in a 47.2-pounder, and Reel Patience brought a 43.8-pounder. Interestingly, no wahoo or tuna came to the scales during the 2013 Bohicket Governor's Cup.
