1st Annual Two Georges at The Cove Billfish Tournament

Lines were in the water at 8 a.m. Friday as the 1st Annual Two Georges at The Cove Billfish Tournament kicked off. This new addition to the Florida tournament circuit, held in Deerfield Beach, donated all proceeds to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Broward County.

The two day tournament champions, Cha Ching, led by Capt. Drew Kettlehut, surpassed all its competitors by catching the most billfish. The 36’ Contender and its crew, out of Boca Raton, brought back a tally of seven sailfish on Friday. Pushing them to the top of the leader board was Saturday’s catch of six sailfish.

“We beat the other boats by double. Everyone around was watching us catch fish,” said Nick Cardella, top mate on Cha Ching.

Fishing with live goggle eyes and sardines suspended from kites, Cha Ching had their eye on the prize when competing with ten other boats. Their opponents quickly turned course to follow the successful lead of Cha Ching after witnessing their early morning hook-ups, according to Cardella.

“Saturday morning, five minutes after lines in the water, we hooked our first sailfish. It was all uphill from there,” said Cardella, “We had two fish before any of the other boats caught their [first] fish.”
