A wrangle broke out among fishermen at the well known Montauk Yacht Club the Oban Yacht Charter website reported. It happened as the seafarers were contending in the Montauk Canyon Challenge became ineligible. After pulling in a winning 343 pound swordfish, the Fish On members — guided by Pete Brancaleone of Shark Hunters, became ineligible when he as well as one of his crew member went wrong in a polygraph and misses out on a chunk of US$ 200000 prize.
David O’Halloran, the tournament organizer, was knocked and tackled by a one of the family members of one of Brancaleone’s crew, and police were asked to interfere when it became a full on brawl. Speaking about the late July incident, David O’Halloran told that there were a lot of shoving and pushing. It was like a schoolyard scene with everybody flailing. He added that that day people had too much of drink and when they announced the winners some felt they were wronged. One man knocked him down and the police threatened to use a Taser. Two men were arrested. He was unable to realize that fishing contests are this dangerous – well, in general, they do not think much about lines and hooks.
Meanwhile, the campaign for an independent Scotland hit the sea when a Yes Yacht launches off Skye next week. From Saturday, 23rd August, will hit the waters to promote the campaign locally. The yacht will be up to all who wish to part their opinions on air or just to relish drink and food on board, along with a menu available from King Haakon Bar that has been declared as Kyleakin’s Yes pub.
