The 10th Annual Harbourside Marine Bahamas Rotary Tuna Classic fishing tournament was held June 10th - 12th with weighing stations in Abaco, Nassau, and Spanish Wells.

Sixteen boats with over 80 anglers competed to land the biggest Tuna, Dolphin, and Wahoo. The weather was fantastic and the anglers enjoyed the friendly competition and camaraderie.

Craig Pinder, Principle Broker of RE/MAX Paradise Realty and proud Rotarian assisted with weighins and was stationed at Green Parrot on Paradise Island.

"Everyone had a great time." said Craig wishing that he was one of the anglers with a bounty of fish. "They were tired but in great spirits!"

The largest Tuna caught was 84.2 lbs. and over $25,000 was raised for local charities and community service projects.
