Daily fishing report: Tournament insider

Randy Stewart had to sort through a lot of king mackerel to catch a big Spanish mackerel for the Big Mack Attack Fishing Tournament at Billy's Stone Crab restaurant Saturday. But persistence paid off as he returned to the weigh-in with a 5.6-pound Spanish mackerel to win the tournament and a check for $1,000.

Stewart, Capt. Joe Bouchard, Jeff Karup and Steve Satterfield are members of the Three Brother's Fishing Team. They caught only six Spanish mackerel and released more than 20 kings in an area off St. Pete Beach they called the "12-mile hard bottom." A slow-trolled live sardine was the bait of choice, and they occasionally tossed a few live sardines as chum to attract the fish to the boat.

Nine-year-old Nick Sekas of Pasadena brought in the second-place winner of 5.5 pounds. Sekas was secretive about his fishing spot, except to say it was his "mackerel hole." He did let it slip that it was near the Sunshine Skyway bridge.

Third place went to John Archer (4.5), fourth to Ken Cohen (4.1), fifth to Hayden Beatty (4.1), sixth to Gary Archer (3.8), seventh to Joel Bickford (3.6) and eighth to Ed Medley (3.6).
