The 17th Annual Bulls Only Dorado Fishing Tournament, sponsored in part by U.S. Battery, announced the winners of this year’s event. John Wood caught a 12.14 pound Dorado to take home the first place prize of $1,000. Nathan Burbey caught an 11.26 pound Dorado and won the $500 prize, while Eduardo Santillon caught a 10.84 pound Dorado to take home the third place win. All three winners were also given a hand-painted Ibarra plate from Ibarra Plate in La Paz.
The Bulls Only Dorado Fishing Tournament is a popular tournament held in Punta Chivato, Baja California Sur, Mexico. U.S. Battery Manufacturing has been a sponsor of this event, because the town of Punta Chivato runs entirely on solar power and most all of the residents rely on U.S. Battery RE-Solar batteries. “Many of us have been customers of U.S. Battery for more than 20-years, and the company has also been one of our tournament’s most valued sponsors.” says Pamela Oxley, representative for the Bulls Only Dorado Fishing Tournament.

“We’re happy to be one of the event’s major sponsors, and congratulate the winners on a great weekend of fishing,” said Don Wallace, U.S. Battery CMO/Executive Vice President. U.S. Battery RE Series deep-cycle batteries include features that give them the highest peak capacity, cycle life, and reliability that provide better performance for solar powered homes and businesses. U.S. Battery’s exclusive Diamond Plate technology utilizes synthetic tetrabasic lead sulfate (TTBLS), crystal structures. The TTBLS, result in enhanced performance, ease of charging, and greater life span over any other battery on the market. U.S. Battery’s RE Series batteries also include Defender™ moss shields, to prevent “mossing shorts” that further reduce battery life. These features, combined with an Outside Positive (OSP™) battery design, overall battery life, capacity and performance are dramatically increased. Available in 6 and 2-volt configurations, RE Series batteries include extra heavy-duty connector lugs, a tough polypropylene exterior case, heavy-duty lifting handles, and the company’s SpeedCap®, a positive locking vent system designed for safe and easy maintenance.
