Congratulations to Victor Locklin who won the 2nd annual Wahoo Gold Cup with this 41.1 lbs. wahoo. Victor took home a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV plus jackpot money of over $40,000 USD. Not a bad day for the crew of the cruiser Oso Negro.

56 teams participated in this year’s tournament and over 200 anglers. More than 30 wahoo were landed during the one day shoot out event. Victor’s wahoo was the very last fished weighed which made for a dramatic finish. Congratulations to all anglers!!
