(Apr. 08, 2013 - KEY WEST, Florida Keys)...

Anglers aboard Get Lit, skippered by Captain Quinton Dieterle of Miami, released 15 sailfish to earn first place and $44,780 in the Pro Division of the inaugural Key West Sailfish Championship that concluded Sunday, April 7, in the Florida Keys.

Get Lit ended the tournament’s first fishing day (April 4) leading the division with five releases, but slipped into second place in the standings the next day (April 5) after scoring three sailfish.

On Sunday, staying slightly east of American Shoals most of the day, the team logged a release at 8:34 a.m. and subsequently added six more to its overall tally to secure the win.

"We caught some fish early in the morning, and then we had one or two fish come up that wouldn’t eat," said Bill Danko of Cincinnati. "We made a move around 1 p.m. further east, found some good water with a nice edge, started to see some tailers and were able to capitalize on that."

The Get Lit team also consisted of anglers Peter Miller, Cap Hinckley and Jon Cooper of Miami.

Second place in the Pro Division and $36,064 went to Silent Hunter, captained by B.J. Meyer of Marathon, Fla., with 12 released sails ? including eight Sunday.

The team consisted of owner Paula Marshall of Tulsa, Okla., and Marathon’s Ben Zdan, James Platt, Ely Hernandez, Cody Darbie, John Callion and George Athanasopoulos.

4 Aces, owned by Miami’s Pedro Adrian, captured third place in Pro, earning $25,436 for a three-day total of 10 releases.

Fishing with Adrian were Miami anglers Robbie Ramirez, Ignacio Quintana, Jeffrey Lieberman and Alex Castellanos, guided by Miami’s Captain John Dudas.

Team SeaHunter topped the field in the Non-Pro Division with 10 releases, taking home $10,000. The team was led by Captain Ralph Montalvo of Pinecrest, Fla., with Charlie Schiffer of Homestead, Fla., as the registered angler.

Tournament director Mike Weinhofer reported the event attracted 60 anglers who released 104 sailfish during three fishing days. Saturday, April 6, was a scheduled lay day.
