The first leg of the three-leg 2015 Los Sueños Triple Crown Billfish Series has completed and the winners are celebrating with anticipation of the next leg, coming up February 25- 28, 2015. The Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown was introduced in early 2014 after the Signature Billfish series had such a successful 10-year run; the Triple Crown brings together .
The tournament brings together the best of two tournaments and has become one of the most popular fishing tournaments in the world, some even calling it “The best sport fishing competition in the Americas.” During the first leg, TARHEEL came in at first place with 10,800 points, followed by WIRE WE HERE with 10,300 points and TROPHY BOX following in at a close third with 10,200 points. All three teams will go on to the second and third rounds, with hopes of winning the big prize of $100,0000.
The tremendous success and world records set during these competitions has placed Los Sueños as the world’s swordfish capital; during last year’s competition more than 5,078 swordfish were released in just nine days. Of this year’s leg I, Mike Hardy, founder and CEO of HRG Properties said, “another world record set in leg one… in three days of fishing 38 bots released 2, 154 sailfish and marlin. We never thought those numbers would be reproduced.” Reproduced they have been and the fishing just seems to keep getting better.
