2013 Fishing For Miracles / Stray Dog wins

Second Place Betty Lou II with a 37.64-King
High Maintenance brings in a nice HOO
Day Two of the 20th anniversary of the Fishing For Miracles king mackerel tourney was fished under much calmer conditions and even a bit of sunshine. However, the top three fish from Friday held up with Stray Dog taking first place, Betty Lou II in second and Fish Hunter taking third place. Of course this tourney pays a cash prize to the top twenty places, and a smattering of top ten fish were brought in on Day Two. Team No Patience weighed a 36.08-pound king to seize fourth place, knocking Like-2-Fish in to fifth with their 36.04-pounder from Friday. Mondo takes sixth with a 35.20-pound king, and The Pursuit is in seventh with a 34.65-pound smoker. Juggernaut finished in eigth place with a 34.54-pound king. Eren's Addiction Too weighed in their ninth place king on Saturday that went 33.81-pounds. Knot@Work and birthday boy Andrew Olsen helped to bring in the 33.75-pounder that rounded out the Top Ten. Choosing to fish only on Saturday was Team No Name, and Captain Todd Baxley and angler Kathy calmly took the eleventh spot with a 33.65-pound King and had a nice blackfin tuna in the boat bag as well. A few wahoo were weighed in at FFM this year in a new Hoo calcutta division, just one of the positive changes instigated by new tourney director John Gourdin of CCA. This weigh in had a European flavor with croissants and beignets at the weigh station; Bon Appetite.
