A combination of Vikings dominated the 2nd Annual Mongo Offshore Challenge with 1st Place finishes in the Blue Marlin, Swordfish, Tuna and Mahi divisions. It Just Takes Time weighed the heaviest blue marlin with 793-pound fish cranked in by Nick Pratt on his Viking 72. The Viking 92 High Cotton took 3rd Place Blue with a 681-pounder. Fleur de Lis, a Viking 80, won the Swordfish category with Zac Taylor’s 271.9-pound sword during a three-day fun fishing trip focused on white marlin – which switched over to swords at night. The 3rd Place Swordfish was awarded to the Viking 64 Titan Up with their 254.1-pound target. A 231.1-pound yellowfin won the Viking 70 Quick Time 1st Place Tuna. C-Student, a Viking 66, claimed 1st Place Mahi with a 44.6-pound fish.
The 132-boat fleet represented all five Gulf Coast states with more than 2,000 anglers. Teams competed as often as desired for five-months with weights collected from 20 official weigh stations and approved big game tournaments throughout the Gulf. This event is challenging because the minimum size limits are set high, for example a blue marlin must be a minimum of 118”. This makes the weighed fish huMONGOus.
