Richest WON Tuna Jackpot Underway

Sirena Triumphs With 345-pound Tuna Jackpot Catch
Third biggest yellowfin tuna in history
of Tuna Jackpot brings redemption

The 345-pound yellowfin John Domanic and his San Jose/La Playa teammates caught the first day of the 21st WON Tuna Jackpot was not only the third biggest in the history of the event, the fish also offered serious redemption to the Sirena fishermen.

"Last year we were in the lead the first day until the Cloud Nine came in with two minutes to go and won with a bigger tuna," Domanic told WON. "So we will be here until the end of the day and wait and see. I have to say I feel a lot better about this fish than last years!"

The first ever Gray Fish Tag $20,000 daily jackpot was claimed by Ivan VanOrtwick's Stella June with a 260-pound yellowfin caught by Jaime Garcia. They won $34,000 and are currently third in the Overall Jackpot

A 42.1-pound wahoo by veteran Tuna Jackpot competitor Job DeHorta topped the first day of wahoo action. There were a handful of wahoo in the high 30s up to the winning weight.

As for dorado, no dorado weighed came close to the 30-pound minimum, so that jackpot will rollover to Friday and offer $80,000 to the boat in that jackpot with the biggest dorado over 15 pounds. Not a typo, the weight shifts down tomorrow. 

We weighed 8 yellowfin over 200 pounds today, with second place in the overall going to the Santana for a 291-pound yellowfin.

Tomorrow should be just as amazing!
