Dick Tanner from CR Primo Fishing Tackle in Herradura organized the “Where’s The Meat” Fishing Tournament early this month. Congratulations to the winners: The Combo and Largest Dorado prize went to the boat “Let Er Rip” ; the Largest Wahoo went to “Ol’ Salt” and the Largest Tuna went to “Shake and Bake,” who got to the weigh in station with two minutes to spare, beating out “Hook”. For more information on fishing in the area, contact Dick at 2637-6111
