Shultz earned the title of divisional grand champion fishing with Captain Connan Lehmkuhl of Key West. He actually released 19 barracuda during the two-day event including one that measured 47.75 inches, but tournament rules mandate that only three fish per day can be counted toward an angler's point score.

As well as taking the division's grand champion angler title, Linville caught the single largest barracuda on fly tackle, a fish measuring 46 inches.

Runner-up in the spin division was Matt Gravett of Warrenton, Va., fishing with Captain Bob Paulson of Sugarloaf Key, Fla. The duo released six barracuda totaling 258.5 inches.

Jim Knowles of Round Hill, Va., took the runner-up title in the fly division for the second consecutive year, releasing five barracuda that totaled 186 inches. His guide was Captain Peter Heydon of Key West.

Dave Moloney of Summerland Key, Fla., released the tournament's largest barracuda on spin tackle at 51.5 inches while fishing with Captain Shane Smith of Key West.
