The 44th International Masters Angling Tournament was completed March 30th in Los Suenos Costa Rica and Carmine Galati fishing in his second Masters staged a tremendous come from behind victory on the last day.  In a tournament that featured surprisingly slow fishing for Costa Rica, Carmine released 5 sailfish on the last day for 350 points, enough to vault him from 24th place to first with a 15 point lead over Chase Offield in second.

Congratulations to Carmine who takes home the “Old Man and the Sea” trophy designed by Ernest Hemingway and John Rybovich.
