David Anderson’s team Krazy Salt’s wasted no time showing the 27 teams fishing the Marsh Harbour Championship that they were out for victory. On the first day of the tournament, team Krazy Salt’s caught and released three blue marlin and a sailfish for an impressive 1,900 points.

By contrast, Day 2 was non-productive for the Palm Beach, Fla.-based Viking 70. With the forecast for westerly winds, the team opted to use Day 3 as their ‘lay day.’ The Bahamas Billfish Championship’s fishing format allows teams to fish three out of four days with a required ‘captain’s choice’ lay-day.

The lay day decision was apparently the right call as Krazy Salt’s added another blue marlin and a white marlin on the final day to finish the third leg of the 2012 BBC series with 2,700 points.
