Out of 137 teams, Penny-less came up as the top boat in the Mercury/SeaVee Saltwater Shootout held at Hillsboro Inlet Park on Saturday.
With such a high turnout, the weigh-ins went late into the evening.
The target species for the shootout were dolphin, wahoo, kingfish, tuna and cobia.
Penny-less, a team based out of Lake Worth, had a combined total of 220.9 pounds.
Michael Wood of the Penny-less crew was the top angler with a total of 136.2 pounds.
To help draw more people in to the tournament, the organizers at Bluewater Movements held a drawing — called the Greenhorn drawing — which offered eight teams free entry.
One of the drawing winners prevailed in the tournament, reeling in the heaviest fish — a 53.6-pound kingfish landed by Chad Lemar of the Trouble Mak-O crew.
There is $275,000 in cash and prizes being awarded, but the winners will not be announced until the awards ceremony on Sunday afternoon at the Pompano Beach Convention Center from 2-5 p.m.
Holding in second place with 214.2 pounds is the crew of Hook Me Up, a charter boat based out of Palm Beach Gardens.
The Shootout is the kickoff in the Saltwater series which includes the Slam and the Showdown.
The top 75 teams will be invited into the Showdown, but only one team will have the honor of earning the Showdown Crown.
