Brazil – 2nd Grander of the Year

Grander Blue Marlin for Capt. Tuba on the Wahoo

Canavieiras, Brazil – Royal Charlotte Bank – What a day for Captain Antonio “Tuba” Amaral on the Wahoo. Not only did he produce the 2nd Grander of 2012, he went 4 of 7 on Blue Marlin releasing a 250, 500, 700 and the 1,000+. One of the finest big fish days on Blue Marlin we have heard in a year. This is Tuba’s 2nd Grander of the Season as well.

The fish took  a Zacatak Animal in purple/pink with a single 11/0 Hays hook!

Congratulations to Capt. Antonio on a FINE season and there is more to come!
