Talk about a good day fishing. Audie Lim Sang, an angler from Miami, took home a $10,000 grand prize this weekend after landing a monster dolphin at the Coconuts Dolphin Tournament in Key Largo.
Lim Sang's caught the 61.5-pound dolphin on opening day of the two-day tournament that drew nearly 300 anglers to this Florida Keys fishing hotspot. Lim Sang, a teetotaler, had told his teammates aboard the Rezkill that if he caught a 50-pounder, he would have his first beer.
The anglers found their fish after following a pair of frigate birds to an area in 1,200 feet of water because dolphin and the aerial predators often feed on the same baitfish. Lim Sang said he saw the bull dolphin and pitched it a flying fish. The rest is tournament history. For more information on fishing the Florida Keys, click here.
