The 55th Montego Bay International Marlin Tournament, sponsored by Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum, is in full swing in St James.

Six days of activities will conclude tomorrow with the Appleton Estate Raft Up and beach party, from 11 a.m. until dark, at the Doctor's Cave Beach Hotel in Montego Bay.

Yesterday, six Marlin were caught, tagged and released. Earlier in the week, a dolphin and a black fin tuna were among those caught.

The final day of fishing is on today, with lines in the water at 7 a.m. and lines out of the water at 4 p.m. The day will end with the Digicel Awards presentation and performances by several stand-up comedians.
