Lost ground but the wahoo and snook was good

We lost a little ground today, sitting in 4th place, 28 points behind the Sea Fly who is in third place.   Their 28 points was delicious, a 28 pound wahoo worth a point per pound and was converted into my sushi dinner last night.  Add 70 sailfish in 3 days and they're neck and neck with the Dragin Fly.

Our Los Suenos slip mate, the Epic is in 2nd with 15,400 points or 77 sailfish and Howard on the Tuna Bite is sitting in first with 79 sails.

Last year the Dragin Fly received the most points for 4 days of fishing,  but lost out to another 42' Maverick, the Frenzy.  For the top charter boat, only the best 3 days are counted, allowing all boats to participate, including those who may have been designated "back up" boats.   The Sea Fly has had two incredible days and are going to be tough to beat.

All 4 days count for the teams from around the world who have come to Costa Rica for the "Super Bowl" of Offshore Fishing.

Two teams of  Brasilians, both who practiced or fished on the Dragin Fly during the tournament are battling it out for 1st and 2nd place.  Our friend Eduardo Castro and his team are leading by only 100 points going into the final day.

Caught a snook today, hard to decide which was better, ir or that wahoo that has got us sitting out of 3rd place
