MARIANAS Apnea Spearfishing Club or MASC president JR Brel earned the title of “Mamulan King” after spearing a 59-pound giant trevally in the MASC Mamulan Cup 2020, which started Aug. 7 and ended on Aug. 31. 

With social distancing rules in effect, it was the first ever remote competition that uses various  fishing techniques. There were 40 participants.

Two days after the start of the competition, Brel came out of the waters with a mamulan at the end of his spear weighing 59 lbs. and about 54 inches long. 

Mii Lin placed second by catching a 46-inch-long mamulan. In third place was Naoki Oura who went cliff fishing and reeled in a mamulan measuring over 42 inches long.

MASC would like to thank all participants for following safe and responsible fishing practices. In addition, MASC would also like to thank Aquasmith for donating gift certificates for the second and third place prizes and the Westpac Advisory Panel for donating the Rob Allen Torpedo buoy. 

MASC said it plans to change things around for its annual competition to keep it interesting for everyone.  MASC has “loads of fun planned out for the future” and is “kindly asking for your continued support.”
