Soares completes series triumph

Soares poses with the 85.5 pound Almaco Jack he landed to help him win the Blue Waters Angling Club’s fishing series

The Blue Waters Angling Club recently held a presentation for their annual fishing series at their headquarters on East Broadway.

The series, sponsored by Bacardi, which included six tournaments, was won by Mike Soares who surged ahead of the pack by landing a 85.5 pound Almaco Jack — a club record — finishing on 2,536.731 points.

Leon Stines finished second, picking up 1,531.752 points, with third place going to Alex Dowling with 1,409.514 points. The top women’s angler was Suzette Bean.

The presentation also featured an award given for long-standing members still actively fishing.

Last year’s recipient Eugene Raynor presented the prize of an etched glass plaque to Quinton Butterfield, who at 90 is still as keen as ever to be on the water.
