Only one dorado made weight in the annual San Carlos Invitational Labor Day fishing tournament, but it was a 50 pound beast caught by Telamon. There were twelve boats entered, and Rebel had the lead on Day 1 with three releases. It’s All Good had two releases on Day 1, and then caught four on Day 2 to take the lead. Some of the ‘regulars’ turned it on on Day 2. Day 3 saw Telamon mount a massive comeback and the win with eight fish to take home 1st place. It’s All Good and Predator tied with six fish for 2nd place. Behind them were Rebel and Kryptonite with five releases each.
