Three Tags Up, Fish 5 Holds the Lead
On September 26 the Fish 5 tag, sponsored by the Kona Game Fishing Club - Taiyo, popped up 1053 nautical miles southeast of Kona, putting it in the lead. This 200-pound marlin was caught by angler Masaharu Matsushita and tagged by Keith "OB" Morton on board the Strong Persuader.
Just 8 days later a third tag popped up, this one from Fish 6 - a 175 pound marlin caught by Bob O'Dea fishing on the Sea Baby III, and sponsored by the Balboa Angling Club. The tag came up 1031 nautical miles southeast of Kona, just a little ways northeast of the Fish 5 tag, putting Fish 6 in second place.
We're now about halfway through the Race with only three tags having popped up early - so it's still anybody's game! Keep checking back for updates.
