January 27th was the most anticipated date for Bait and Weight’s Fishing League, as it marked the occasion of announcing the winners after a memorable two- day fishing adventure sponsored by Sheraton Somabay and organized by the Red Sea Anglers.The Westin Hotel hosted a spectacular gala dinner to celebrate the 62 participants where Complex General Manager Borris Bornman presented the first prize to Team Doma scoring 140 points, as well as handing out various trophies commemorating best team spirit, deep bottom fishing and top ethical Angler. Winners were given the choice to donate their best catches – including the largest Cobia fish caught in 50 years, weighing 28.950 KG. -to the FoodBank present at the event in a gesture intended to capture Somabay’s on-going commitment to giving back to the community.
