1999 Keehi Annual Jackpot Fishing Tournament Report

This year's tournament had a total of 88 entries, with 30 of the 88 boats weighing fish.  Since it was a largest fish tournament, some boats caught but didn't weigh-in, so more than 30 boats actually caught something.  The winning fish was a 220.5lb Marlin caught by Rick Abille on Blue Diamond.  Other notable fish caught in the tournament were a 77lb Sailfish, a 144.5lb Black Marlin, and several nice Ahi ranging from 100 - 157.8lbs.   See below for complete results.
