Huge 75.8 pound black grouper steals the show at Captain Hook’s Spearfish Tournament

Florida Keys Fishing Report – July 14, 2010

Miguel Guinovart’s 75.8-pound black grouper was plenty big enough to win the Men’s Individual Reef Competition in the third annual Florida Keys Open Spearfishing Tournament, fished Saturday and Sunday out of Captain Hook’s Marina and Dive Center in Marathon.

Jose Santeiro, Guinovart’s team member, added to their success with some nice fish of his own, allowing the pair to win the Reef Team Competition. Santeiro came in second place and Jeremy Foell took the third place honors in the Men’s Individual Reef Competition.

Guinovart came through again with the largest pelagic fish of the tournament, with a 27.1-pound kingfish. That was followed up by a junior, Steel Rocket, spearing a 16.2-pound cobia. Steel took top honors in both the Pelagic and Reef Junior competitions. Dane Ralph took second place and Travis McMillian took third in the Junior Reef Competition.

More than 60 fish were weighed in over the weekend.
