Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi sent the anglers of the 2017 Samoa International Game Fishing Tournament on their way on Monday.
Tuilaepa pulled the trigger to start the tournament and immediately the first started rolling in and there was plenty of fun to be had.
Unfortunately, while there was plenty of fish caught, there were not too many big ones as these pictures will show.
Nonetheless the anglers had a whale of a time and are more determined than ever to end the tournament on a higher note.
Here are Monday’s catches.
