Fish worth more

An upcoming fishing tournament will have lots of prizes on offer. The latest offerings will reward those who hunt dolphins.

The Kirk Group Dolphin Slam takes place this Saturday and Sunday 16-17 April and sees two additional prizes. A top prize of $5,000 will be awarded to the crew that produces the heaviest total weight of dolphin catches. If the boat used for those catches is a Evinrude brand, an additional $1,000 will be given.

Also on offer is the Barcadere prize, which is $5,000 for the team that breaks the Cayman dolphin record. The current mark is 58 pounds and was set years ago.

Those prizes join an already impressive list that gives $5,000 for first place, $2,000 for second place and $1,000 for third place. The heaviest dolphin grabs $1,000. The heaviest fish reeled in by a lady angler gets $500 and the top junior angler catch earns $500.
