Day 2: On a ROLL with RELEASES!

The fishing was HOT today- participants racked up an overall total of 49 releases! Of those 49- 36 were blue marlin, 7 white marlin, and 6 sailfish. Participants averaged 1 release every 7 minutes between the hours of 9am and 3pm.

SEA STRIKER's 500.2 lbs. blue marlin didn't shake up the leaderboard, but did bring out the HOMETOWN crowd! We're expecting FENDER BENDER to arrive any minute & will provide an update ASAP!

Congratulations to GOOD TIMES- winner of the Gregory Poole 1st Release of the Day, worth $5,000!

DOC FEES (unofficially) released the 61st fish in the 61st Annual Big Rock Tournament, earning them $6,100!

Gamefish weighins are underway- tune in to Big Rock TV for a LIVE look at all the action!
