Daily fishing report

Katie Carr was concerned about the huge king mackerel that took her bait and was wrapped around a crab trap near the mouth of Tampa Bay. Capt. Jay Mastry maneuvered his boat, Jaybird, to free the fishing line while the king continued to circle the trap, and Carr worked to recover the fish. After a 30-minute struggle, the 44.24-pound king was recovered. Mastry said he was fishing about a cast away from where Randy Keys caught his big fish Saturday.

Carr won first place overall and in the women's division in the Suncoast Kingfish Classic at Harbourside Resort in Indian Rocks Beach.

Keys and Jimmy Hasson flat-lined a 3-pound bluefish behind LaPerla hopeful that a big bait would attract a big fish. At 7:30 Saturday morning, a 42.08 king took it. Keys was first Saturday but was bumped to second by the Mastry/Carr fish. First in the youth division went to 10-year-old Stephen Dellane on Team Kingpin. He returned to the dock with a 23.36 king, beating his first-day weight of 18.24.

Robert Perlburg on Hoo Hoo won the 23-foot and under division with a 39.60 king.

There were 148 boats entered, payout was to 14th place and 125 fish were weighed in.

Up next: Suncoast Kingfish Classic, Gators on the Pass, Treasure Island.
