Brutal conditions just one weekend earlier subsided in time for 79 boats to take to the waters off Marathon for the 2022 Tom Thumb Marathon Offshore Bull & Cow Dolphin Tournament on April 29-May 1. Out of 632 total anglers, team Contagious emerged victorious for the third time in the bull and cow combined weight category. The squad, composed of Don Delon, Rob Delon, Travis Bennett, Andy Cone and captain Brian Cone, tipped the scales with a massive 40.8-pound bull mahi paired with a 17.8-pound cow to capture the top slot.
“We had great weather, and the people there loved it,” said tournament organizer captain Jack Carlson. “It was just a great all the way around tournament. We’ve been running this for a long time, and everybody has fun.”
