Daily fishing report

Published November 16, 2003

Et-Tu-Brute again took top honors at the King of the Beach tournament, with a 45.1-pound kingfish Saturday. Last year's winning fish for the team, which has been cleaning up in king mackerel tournaments for years, weighed 46.2.

Three other teams weighed fish of more than 40 pounds on the scales at American Legion Post 273 on Madeira Beach. Constant Chaos took second with 42.24, Class of 1970 was third with 41.08 and Jaws Too was fourth with 40.14 pounds. Fat Boyz rounded out the top five with a 39.84-pounder.

"We were so close, a fish over 40 pounds broke us off during the morning bite," said St. Petersburg's Chris Weldon, and he wasn't alone. Plenty of giant kings were hooked and got away, according to many of the anglers. Weldon said his day took an interesting twist when an estimated 90-pound sailfish entered his trolling spread, bit and was released unharmed after a 30-minute fight.

No Bananas won the women's division with a 30.22-pounder caught by LeeAnn Howes, and J-Bird turned in a last-minute 23.16-pound fish caught by Katie Carr to finish second.

Robert Mitchell caught a 21.48-pound fish aboard Lucky 13 to win the youth division. Stevie Dellane caught a 19.02-pounder on Kingpin for second.
