HEADING into the second day of competition, the 29th Game Fishing tournament looks to be a record tournament.
After day one, 44 fish have been caught while the tournament record sits at 100.
Tournament official Mark Spurling said they could set a new record if they continued with the number of catch per day.
"The record stands at 100 fish for the three days but already we have caught 44 in one day. We are looking at breaking the record," he said.
Lunasea leads day one of the Game Fishing tournament in Pacific Harbour.
Lunasea's has 568.5 points while Freedive is second with 159.6. A total of 44 fish were caught and the organisers are expecting more excellent catch as the tournament progresses. Lunasea's angler Scotty O'Cornor caught the biggest catch of the day, his fish weighing 22.7 kilograms.
Spurling was surprised with the number of turnout at the weigh in yesterday afternoon at the Club Oceanus.
The event is the first of its kind after a lapse of two years. Spurling said they wanted to revive the sport in the country.
He said boats from Suva, Denarau and Pacific Harbour were part of the historic event. He anticipates another great day of catch today.
Spurling said the competition would get tougher as they progressed through to latter stages of the tournament.
The tournament will end tomorrow.
