TBF is glad to share this recapture of sailfish that was tagged by a family of great TBF supporters, the Mansur’s. Angler, Christian Mansur with Capt. Eric Mansur Sr. and TBF award winner Jose Guanipa tagged and released this sailfish in late November of 2012 in the waters off of Aruba aboard the “Alina”. Two hundred days later this sailfish was recaptured by artisanal fisherman, Capt. Juan Romero on the “Vigen del Carmen I” off the coast of Venezuela roughly 260 miles from where it was tagged. When it was recaptured in June of 2013 the sailfish weighed 35 pounds and measured 63 inches. Congratulations to everyone on the “Alina” and thanks for all your support.
