Weigh in happens at 5:30 pm on Saturday and 3:30 pm on Sunday down at the Placencia Fishermen's Cooperative main dock. This year's officials were Salva Zabaneh, Carlton "Jack" Young, & Andrew Godoy.
The tournament always has great sponsors - this year the sponsors included Shell Placencia, Belize Bank, Insurance Corporation of Belize, Tipsy Tuna Sports Bar, Marelco & Yamaha, Barefoot Beach Bar & The Secret Garden. Others that sponsored can be seen on the Placencia Lobsterfest T-shirt.
This is the scale that has been used in the past for the tournament.
This year a digital scale was used for the weigh in.
The catches were not as big as previous years but a few of the fish that did come in were real WHOPPERS!
A barracuda from the "Teresa G"
Dorado from the "Coulton's Reef"
A barracuda and the largest fish caught by a woman

Of course it is Lobsterfest so there has to be lobster - this was the largest one caught!
LoveFM never missed a beat! They reported all weekend on everything that Placencia Lobsterfest had to offer.
In the end this fishing tournament judge's shirt says it all...........
Join us for next year's tournament - June 27th & 28th!
