Chinandega, Nicaragua 2014 Race Start

DECEMBER 2014 -- Three months ago, on September 4, 2014, off the west coast of Northern Nicaragua, angler Robert Sandino caught estimated around 41 kg (90 lb) sailfish that Alan Munez satellite tagged aboard IGFA Trustee Carlos Pellas’ boat Rum Runner. Rum Runner Capt. Joe Crawford stated that over the past five years, this year in particular, he's experienced phenomenal fishing in Nicaragua. Crawford also commented: "Both fish seemed to be stronger and have a bit more of a nasty attitude than the average sail. They both fought like little marlin and were both in excellent health when released!"

We are very excited to add two more sailfish to the IGMR database. The tags are due to report on March 3, 2015 and we are eager to hear back from them.
