Daily fishing report

Bryan Wallace spoke nonchalantly about the 34-pound king mackerel worth $2,800 in Billy's Fall Kingfish Classic at Terra Verde.

But at 7:45 Saturday morning, it was pandemonium aboard Desperado as he, Scott Wallace and Joe Barbara fought three fish simultaneously while Sean Young maneuvered the boat to land all three. The largest gave up after a 10-minute fight. The Clearwater hard bottom is a busy spot, so a quick fight is advantageous.

Second place went to Tommy Schnader on Blue 4 with a 32.2-pounder. Schnader was fishing off Tarpon Springs when the fish hit a slow-trolled pilchard at 9:30 a.m.

Katie Carr on Jaybird won the women's division with a 25-pounder. Shaun Bailey, 14, won the youth title with 12.9.

With 100 boats, it was the largest turnout in 10 years. The Suncoast Kingfish Classic is this week at Indian Rocks Beach.
