SEA WITCH SCORES INSHORE FOUR

After two days of fishing, Sea Witch alone landed a tuna, a dolphin, a wahoo, and a kingfish to win the Grand Slam of the Inshore Four Fishing Tournament.
The Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club ran the Inshore Four tourney as part of their Small Boat Series. Marielle Brandon and Sea Witch added their $3,500 worth of airline tickets and cash to the winnings from first place at this year's Northside Kingfish Tournament.
Two days of fishing showed how fickle the sea can be. Both Saturday and Sunday provided similar weather conditions, but Saturday provided fishermen with twice the number of fish. Three boats needed only one more fish to have all four species for the Grand Slam after Saturday. Patty's Permission searched in vain for a single dolphin, and Rampage was hunting for wahoo. Not scoring a Grand Slam did not leave these boats empty handed however, as Rampage scored most weight of fish with 117.2 pounds, and Patty's Permission won the best three species weight with 62.6 pounds.
Offshore Marine hosted the event and their big deck in Subbase was the scene of the weigh in and BBQ party assisted by Coca Cola and Coors Light. American Airlines and U.S. Air provided tickets for the first and second place winners. First and second place winners of individual largest fish awards were awarded Shimano Reels and Shimano Rods.
In the individual scoring, the Turbe family turned up at the awards table regularly, with Scott Turbe's 32.2 pound fish winning first in kingfish, and Adam Turbe second place in both dolphin and tuna. First place in dolphin, at only 9.2 pounds, was awarded to Albert Sibilly, Tom Anderson's sixteen pound tuna was first, and Marielle Brandon's 35.2 pound wahoo added first in that category to her winnings for the day.
