(Dec. 14, 2011 – ISLAMORADA, Florida Keys)… Team Contagious took home top honors and a $12,000 check after the ninth annual Islamorada Fishing Club Captain’s Cup Sailfish Tournament Dec. 8.

Led by Captain Brian Cone of Islamorada, anglers John Timura of Islamorada, Greg Toplin of Key Largo, Fla., and Travis Bennett of Tavernier, Fla., scored seven releases in the shortest time for the win.
