Los Sueños 2021 Signature Triple Crown competitors complete Leg II
As the fishing tournament season moves forward, we are excited to announce the winners of Leg II of the 2021 Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown - in full swing, as usual, despite COVID-19 social distancing measures.
Of course, a few exceptions have been made to the usual party atmosphere here at Los Sueños Resort & Marina. Awards are presented at the winners’ boats, rather than in a big ceremony and much is being handled virtually.
The Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown takes place each year as it has since 2004- everyone loves it and this year is no exception.
After almost 20 years, this phenomenal billfish tournament event has become one of the most highly competitive tournaments in the world, and continues to draw professional angler teams from across the globe.
Los Sueños’ fishing is quite exceptional. Between the warm Costa Rica weather and the calm blue waters off of Central America’s beautiful Costa Rica shoreline, you can’t pick a better place for an exciting fishing adventure.
When the incredible fishing comes together with the green rainforest backdrop of the luxuriously master-planned Los Sueños Resort and Marina, it’s an experience that can’t be beat.
Attracting angler teams from all over the world, this year’s Signature Triple Crown Billfish Series event hosted 38 teams, each participating in a grand contest to win prizes totaling well over $100,000.
It all starts with the Ladies Only tournament...
Ladies Only Tournament: Leg II results are in
The Ladies Only tournament results are in and boy oh boy are they impressive.
Tuesday, February 23, 2021, the women completed Leg II of the LSRM Ladies Only one-day tournament series. Eleven boats netted a total of 129 sails, including 3 marlin. D.A. Sea finished the day in first place with 2200 points for 22 sailfish. D.A. Sea’s cumulative total stands at 4000 points for Legs I and II.
Dragin Fly turned in a Leg II score of 1700 for 12 sails and 1 marlin, standing at 2900 points for both legs. In third place for the day, Fish Tank scored 1400 points for 3400 points so far.
Leg III of the one-day tournament series will be held March 16, 2021, when the top lady angler takes her place in the record books—who will it be?
Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown, Leg II

The 2021 Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown is two-thirds of the way to being in the record books. With one leg left to go, the top five teams’ scores are pretty close together:
Fish Tank 9800
Team Galati 9100
Grand Slam 9000

There’s barely a difference that a lucky day and a couple of marlin can’t erase. Stay tuned for Leg III, March 17 – 20, and don’t forget the Ladies Only competition on the 16th!
