Team Sandman takes the Buccaneer Cup!

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Scales pro team member Sandman takes down the 48th Annual Buccaneer Cup!  The best part is, this team who is one of the best live bait tournament sailfish teams switches up to dead bait trolling to take advantage of the point differential and the move proved victorious!  Sandman released 18 sailfish on dead bait for a 3-day total of 5400 points.  Congratulations to Cap’t Neil Orange, Jr., owner Sandra MacMillan and the entire Sandman team for the victory!  2nd place went to Weez in the Keys, followed by Boneshaker in 3rd!
