TEAM Hoodlum moved to the top of the Denarau Game & Sport Fishing Club big boat class points table after a fantastic outing during its competition in Nadi last Sunday.

The anglers on Team Hoodlum hauled in nine mahi-mahi to earn enough points to push them to the front.

Team Hoodlum has 712.8 points and is ahead of Synergy with 682.6 points, Salsa with 679.2 points, Grady White with 670.8 points and Ice T with 630.8 points.

Tommy One maintained its top spot in the small boat class with 467.6 points. Oktimokti is second with 324.6 points and Tainui third with 203.6 points.

Club secretary Jared Wood said they would be holding another one-day competition on July 20 because of Sunday's success.

Wood said Tainui was fast catching up to the leaders in the small boat class after collecting 150 points on Sunday for a tagged sailfish.

"We held another successful competition with some great fish weighed," Wood said.

Mark Ellison claimed the top male angler title while Janet Gurter was the top female angler.

The top junior angler was Thakor Punja.

The heaviest species of fish caught was sailfish (Darren Smith), mahi-mahi (Pat Allen) and walu (Scott O'Conner).
